As a husband and father, let me say: If you have specific questions for a doctor and you're not going to the appointment, write down every question you want answered.
My wife comes home from the doctor with everything answered.
I come home from the doctor with a lollipop and a shoulder shrug.
having said that, my younger son had a burst blood vessel in his eye for weeks. The doctor said that it just takes a long time for the blood to reabsorb into the body and that it was nothing to worry about. Happens all the time.
