I think it helped that we told him that the drops were for his owie eye. That the drops would help fix it. He seems to understand that perfectly. And, sure enough, a day later, his eye's clear again, and three days later, he seems entirely well and totally perky. When he first got the pinkeye, he was really out of sorts and tired all the time.
John may have picked up Jet's cold of two weeks ago. I may well have gotten Jet's bacterial infection in my sinuses, as I was no better on Sunday after sleeping my shifts on Saturday. So we took me into the walk-in clinic and I got my antibiotics, too. Keen stuff, too, as it's a one dose every 24 hours thing rather than the wake up in the middle of the night kind of stuff I remember having to have when I used to have strep. John's fever broke Saturday night. We slept the rest of Sunday. Both John and I are having problems sleeping at night. Jet had real troubles, for three nights in a row, getting any sleep at all with his cold, which is why we think John has his insomnia. I'm just having problems breathing with all the discharge I'm getting from my sinuses, even while I buzz (it's that heart and bone deep extra buzz I get) on Sudafed. The decongestants just don't seem to work all that well any more, after I abused them as a kid with allergies.
Jet, however, was totally energetic all weekend. Refused to nap until late, so he was up late, and that didn't help John and I much with our rest.
