I was going to say the worst thing to wake up in to in the morning is a whiney child and knowing the whiney child is whiney because they are sick. but when I saw the whiney child I knew there were worse things to wake up to. Like this.
This is what my child normally looks like...
This is the child I picked up from school...
Doc says he bumped his ear.
I say no spider bite?
he says no, there would be a knot.
I say whew!
This is the child I wake up to...
Lots of swelling and red and hot. I have no car. I told Big Daddy with Alex being home, I won't need to go anywhere. So, crap. I text Big Daddy this pic, no answer. I call and say LOOK! he says "Oh, he's fine. I think it's because he was rubbing his face on the trampoline." ... he what? "He was rubbing his face on the trampoline this morning. I asked him if he was ok, he said "Why?" so I told him goodnight and he said "goodnight." ...? "Does he have a runny nose or something?" yeah."Well, that's what it looked like he was doing." Ooooh. but then Big Daddy says he's going to be home early and he's going to get done quick and if he had known I would need the car... which has me thinking he's secretly freaking out. So, there's an Urgent Care center within walking distance so I call the doctor's office.
The nurse at the doctor's office is asking info, I'm giving info. She asked about temp because it was 103 yesterday. I'm not sure, he was hot, I gave him Tylenol, tried to take his temp but he refused, his naked self being covered in poop in the downstairs area, I wasn't fighting too hard. I told her about the trampoline and that he's been in luke-warm water for about 20ish minutes and it hasn't changed his face a bit, just made it a little more red. She said she knows what it sounds like. She would like to talk to the doctor and call me back. She called me back once to ask smooth vs bumps. It's smooth so they don't think it's poison ivy. I told her it's ONLY his ears and face. So, she's going to call me back again.
