School nurse

Tc got to go to the Tx Sta*te Fair this week with school. I think he had a great time! Unfortunately the next day he was none to happy to go to school. He cried as I put him on the bus. And apparently he had a nosebleed once he got there. So the sent him to the nurse.

The school nurse called hubs and was asking about his legs (they are so much better and are scabbing over) but you can see the bites. They are not red or infected and he has completed his oral antibiotics. The nurse basically said we need to take him to our dr and get more antibiotics. The e.r. told us as long as the red is gone and it is not sore to the touch, he will heal up and be fine.

I told hubs that I understand her concern but we did exactly what the dr's told us and we even kept him home 2 more days to allow him to heal. I am not going to battle it out with another nurse!

I know some parents don't take care of their kids but we do. Sheesh.

Itsy bitsy spider

We had an interesting weekend! We went to the football game on Friday. Sara performed with the dance team at 1/2 time. Our boys won 39 to 0!

Hubby noticed a bite on TC's leg so we took a look at it and noticed another one on his other leg. Both bites had a head on was already draining. The other we poked and it started draining as well. On Saturday we did the same thing....both bites were still looking pretty bad but we disinfected them and they were less red.

The next day we continued to mash them and get the stuff out but by Sunday afternoon we were concerned that they needed to be looked at by a dr. We took TC to the e.r. and it was a terrible ordeal. They had to deaden the area with a needle before they could lance the two bites (they called them boils). It was so poor baby screamed and screamed. The dr. lanced the two places and they immediately looked better. He is now on oral antibiotics and pain meds and can't go back to school til' Thursday if he is looking better.  He was so brave. I was very proud of him.

I also reported the bites to his school, and to his bus driver. The bus driver said they are going to spray for spiders on the bus. She will also talk to the principal about spraying the playground area. I am just so glad we took him in, it could have been so much worse!
