Here is an important lesson that you've probably never thought to tell your kids. Do not tie a ribbon to both of your hands and then jump off of a swing. It is possible to injure your eye. I'm not entirely sure I can picture how this happened, but it did in fact happen to Funny Girl last night. She refused to let us get a look at it, so we let her go to bed.
In the morning her eye was swollen and painful. I took her up to a FirstCare branch of Athens Regional where the doctor was able to get some numbing drops in her eye. She's got a pretty significant corneal abrasion. We were then referred to an opthamologist who gave us a prescription for an antibiotic. He tried to get a contact lens into her eye which would have eliminated the pain, but she wouldn't open her eye wide enough.
The good news is she should be fine in a couple of days. We have a follow-up appointment to check her progress on Wednesday.
