What an afternoon.
This little one has been helping me all day (we're designing a new chicken coop) and I'd set up a tent for her near to where I was working so she could play as well.
Unknown to me she'd taken a flower in there (not sure which one yet) and I thought she must have rubbed some in her eye. She came to me quite distraught and saying she couldn't open her eye and it was burning. I washed it out quickly then grabbing the boy we jumped in the car to head to A&E but she kept falling asleep in the car which worried em even further.
I wasn't sure what to do so rather than drive to the local town I called at the doctors in the village who luckily saw her there and then.
They weren't worried and the signs weren't there for anything serious so just antihistamines to put my mind at ease and a good nap for her now so she calms herself down.
Managed to pick my other daughter up just in time from school as well (well I was late but not too late).
It's amazing to have a doctors surgery in the village and I'm so grateful that they saw her like that without an appointment (I should have gone to A&E really!).
I'm not someone who panics but she was so worked up I was unsure what to do.
Be careful with what your kids play with folks!
** This is copied from my facebook page and since getting home and getting her settled she said that it was sawdust in her eye. If she'd told me this before I would have worried much less. I was thinking it was an allergic reaction but I think now that it'l just that she rubbed it so much.
Poor little thing but she did make me worry! Feel like a fool for charging into the doctors now though! ***
