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 them...one 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 bad..my 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!

This definitely sounds like a miserable experience all around. Hoping TC heals really fast and soon forgets the misery. I'm proud of hiim for getting thru it, I'd be screaming too!!

Oh no! Poor TC! I hope he heals fast. It is a good thing the school is going to spray for the spiders.
