Crazy Land

Things have been a little hectic here in our little corner of the world, sorry I have not been around lately.

Yesterday I had to leave work early and take Claire to the pediatrician. Since Sunday we noticed Claire had these tiny little red "bumps" on the insides of her thighs. At first, we thought they were flea bites since her and a bunch of neighborhood kids were playing with a stray pup Claire was loving calling "Best Friend". But, by Tuesday the angry spots had traveled to her groin area, under her butt cheeks, and moving on up her tummy.

Sitting there in the doctor's office waiting for her turn, Claire was full of questions and concerns for other children in the room and impatiently wanted to know when her turn would be. I did my best to keep her entertained and tried to give her Tic Tacs because her breath stunk.

2 hours later I was told Claire had a staph infection, and a pretty bad one at that. She is taking antibiotics 3 times a day for 10 days and we're keeping our fingers crossed that it will take care of the virus.

So as you may guess, I have been busy stripping beds, washing clothes, and spraying anything that sit still long enough with Lysol. I will keep you all updated as much as possible!

PS. I also have Taylor's physical therapist visit tomorrow morning!!
