Sty in my eye

Cheney has had a difficult past month. He was really sick one week & missed 3 days of school, then he got a retainer on the top & the bottom teeth. The retainer on the top has to be expanded with a key every few days. It has made it difficult for him to eat & talk but he handled it well. Then, he got a sty. It looked like a typical sty except it didn't go away. One Sunday morning, he woke up to this....

Doesn't that look painful? We took him to the minor emergency clinic & they told us to keep warm, wet compresses on it & it would get better. It finally did....after about 24 hours.

This friends thought he had gotten in a fight! He thought that was pretty cool!

I'm so sorry, Cheney! You're a tough guy for hanging in there. I'm such a baby and would totally be whining!

Looks painful, Big Guy. Hope you are now on the "stay well" list for a loooooong time. You have had your share of being sick.
