We spent 3 hours yesterday at our local urgent care.
Chyann has a massive infection on the bottom of her right big toe.
Due to my having had chicken pox while pregnant
she has nerve damage in her right lower leg.
This means reduced to no feeling in that area.
Therefore unless you are looking at her toe and can see the
pus running out, swollen tissues and redness you'd never
know there was a problem.
We were unaware that the wound she received running around
barefooted (she should never do, but does occasionally)
about 3 weeks ago had not healed until Sunday evening.
She go a tetanus shot, is on antibiotics and has to
use crutches for at least three days.
Maybe more depending on how the healing is going
The doctor gave her the blunt - shock
her if you can talk about how he'd seen better looking
infections than what she has end up as amputations.
I think he may have gotten through to her as
she swears she'll wear shoes outside from now on and has
been using her crutches diligently to keep the weight off her foot.
And really it looks a LOT better today.
Colton had a blast at Rock-Fest Sunday.
He wonders why we never took him before.
I'm like, well no that was our time to hang out with our friends.
He and his buddies in the band had
practice after getting home from Rock-Fest
and I'm sure they all were dreaming of making it big and
playing there themselves one day.
I'm just glad he made it there and back safely.
He didn't do anything dumb or have anything dumb happen to him.
I for sure got the temp job at the insurance company.
That starts Aug 16th.
Have not heard anything about the perm position there.
So, today I called and left a message for the gal
who interviewed me asking what the scoop with that was.
Haven't heard back yet.
I'm feeling some stress...
Playing the what if game way too much...
Tossing and turning till the wee hours...
Rotten headaches all day long from no sleep...
She is able to stand if you put her in that position for a bit.
She has more movement in her tail and legs.
Is able to hold her bowels (most of the time) until she is put
It's all good, really....
