Wednesday Update

So....things were going great today. I had a great day at work, albeit long. I made a fun dinner of breakfast (gotta love that). And I was on my way out the door to help with youth at church. Cori was standing up on her chair at the table, and I saw a red mark on her leg. She had paint on her hands and leg and so at first I thought it was paint, but then upon closer inspection there were HUGE welts on the inside of her thigh.

I was immediately concerned. She could have "rug burned" it on her new slide. Or since the heat index was triple digit here today I was afraid she got a true burn. But then I looked closer and it looked like bites. So, off to the urgent care we went...after a quick call to church let them know that I was not coming.

I had told Justin it could be a burn or a bite, but didn't say what kind--I didn't want to alarm him (see my previous post about his OCD). In the car Cori says she had a spider bite. I couldn't believe it. We kind of laughed, but then realized since we were going to a different Dr. we really had to start prepping her that it wasn't her wonderful pediatrician, but a different Dr. and she would have to show the new Dr. her leg. She said she would after being bribed with gum.

We got to the Dr and she was so inquisitive, and thought everyone she saw was the Dr. She seemed scared at every bump she heard in the hallway, but then she said she would talk to the Dr. When he came in she said, "Hi Dr." She was very chatty and cute. The Dr. seemed very impressed. He said it could be a slide burn, but he thought it was a spider bite instead.

After a quick visit at the Dr., two different pharmacies to get the prescriptions filled, and a Dora sleeping doll as a prize, we made it home, took a bath, and went to bed.

Poor little girl with a spider bite.

Oh, and her swing set is almost done. Finished pics to come soon.
