I rushed him down to the doctors and it was decided that gluing the wound would be less traumatic than stitching it. Bad decision. The nurse who was gluing him accidentally dropped glue into one of his eyes. Poor boy totally freaked out when he realised his eye was glue shut - there was a lot of screaming and a lot of tear (some were mine).
Today the patch is off and tonight I even managed to pry his eyelashes apart so his eye can open again - hooray!!!
