Since Matthew's out of the country for work I figured we'd all make a trip to the ER/urgent care, we usually do. It's a family tradition. Matthew's flight left Tuesday and I've been waiting patiently all week. Today was the day!
Anna and I played outside all afternoon yesterday and after supper the kiddos and I went back outside to play with our new chalk toys. We then hopped on the swing set and it was there I discovered yucky bug bites that were bleeding on Anna's neck. Yuck! She didn't seem bothered but we went inside for a bath and an application of Melaleuca oil. This morning one of the bites looked bigger and redder. I then doubted they were just bug bites. Well...we went to visit the fish tank at the clinic and found out the real bad bite turned into a skin infection. So as not to break tradition we then went to Target for the amoxicillan that is also a family requirement when Matthew's out of town.
I think to play it safe we'll just stay indoors until Papa returns. Usually I only go to the clinic for one child while Matthew's gone although once I did have to make two separate trips. Papa, please come home safely and soon. We miss you!
