Not a normal Tuesday..


My daughter , Kristen has had a sore under her arm since last Thursday. I took her to the doctor for it this morning, and it is a staph infection. They had to do Minor Out-patient Surgery on it. It was painful for her. They just used a local anesthetic. She will have to go back in the morning and then on Friday for them to check and re-bandage it.I'm so glad we have gotten it taken care of. I really didn't know what it was. I thought it was a spider bite, since we have had those in the past. The doctor said it was a good thing that I brought her in, before the infection got into her bloodstream. She is taking some medicine now.
When she was in there, She was crying,and that made me cry. I can't hardly take it when one of my kids are in pain..
We are home and settled down now.. It's been a very long day. I hope all of you have had a good day.
God Bless and hugs***
And Happy Birthday to my friend, Melanie.. Read her blog.The link is on here..

Bye for now....

I hate it when one of my girls is sick. Nothing worse than seeing your child sick or in pain.
Glad the doctors got to the infection and it's being taken care of.
Love the pic!
