Well we went back to the doctor today with Reese. He had a rash on his nose that, as of today, has been there a week. I researched it online, and thought I knew what it was, and Dr. T confirmed that it is Impetigo. He said that it is a bacteria that can get into the slightest break in the skin, and it just causes an infection in that spot. On top of that, he has a cold too. (runny nose, coughing, sneezing, etc.) They did a flu test on him and it came back negative, so thank goodness for the small things. For the rash, we have one topical and one oral antibiotic to clear it up. We debated on whether to still go to the eye doc tomorrow, but after talking with my mother-in-law (nurse) we feel like he is not contagious anymore and he is ok. In fact, after all of this, he hasn't slowed down one bit. (still running, screaming, torturing his older brother, etc.)
It seems as if all of my friends have sick children right now, or just got over some kind of illness. Does it seem like this winter has been unusually bad for sickness?
I have to share my two "funnies" that the boys have said in the last few days.
1. Sunday night after church we were talking about what we were going to eat for supper. Brooks said, "Mommy can we go somewhere to eat that has food?" My response was, "Whenever we go somewhere to eat, there is always food there." (I know that he just wanted to go somewhere OUT to eat.)
2. Today when I was dropping off Reese's prescriptions at the drive up window of the pharmacy, the boys were unusually quiet. As we pulled away Reese said "I un fy......I un fys.....Mommy, I un fys." This took me a second and then I realized he thought we were at a drive through and he was saying "I want fries."
