Survey Says...

Infection, right knee!
Ah yes, Golden Boy had to see an orthopedic specialist yesterday, because the stand by doc (who, despite what Hubs said, was incredibly nice) said little man's knee needed to be drained and had to make sure the infection hadn't invaded his little joints.
Yikes. All this in just two days.
So the ortho guy said it didn't need to be drained, and the infection hadn't gone below the patella. Yay, I suppose. He prescribed Rx and sent us on our way.
OF COURSE the pharmacy didn't have it in stock. STILL waiting on it, in fact.
Long story short, GB woke up with a high fever and the dry heaves. Called ortho doc and got his ass out of bed. He talked me off the ledge, said it's not life threatening, so just focus on getting the fever down and keeping him comfortable. I'm now working on two days with very little sleep and not making a whole lot of sense, I know. Doc says that within 2 days of starting Rx, GB should be good as new. But at 2am, all I could think of was the worst case scenarios.... bee sting leading to coma, West Nile Virus...

On a side note, hubs shaved his head. I don't like this. And I don't mean the Wentworth Miller sexy stubble look.


I mean the down to the scalp Kojak look.


Not that Hubs isn't still hotter than Georgia in July, but jeez.

OH MY GOD, he really did it! He mentioned it on Saturday but dang!

I hope D's feeling better today. How are YOU doing?

You just made me giggle out loud!
Too funny. (About the Hubs not GB).

On the other side, I hope GB feels better soon. That can be so scary. It is so annoying when the pharmacy doesn't have the meds in stock. That has happened to me the last two times and I had to wait.

Ahhh... Nothing quite says beat the summer heat than that of a completely shaved head.

I hope GB is okay. It's always so hard for me when the boys are sick or hurting. Even though I know they are going to be okay it is still so difficult. I hope he gets well soon.

Holy cow! All from a bee sting. Poor little guy. Please give him a hug for me and I hope that Rx gets filled today. Try to get a nap in with him. *HUG*

The knee looks nasty from the post above.

And I got quite the kick out of see Kojack. I hope your hubby isn't that bad...

Ugh, that's not good! I hope that Rx kicks it and that waiting for them to get it in stock hasn't caused further issues.
