This week, and the past weekend, has been nuts. On Friday I came down with a bad case of bronchitis. I had to call in sick on Saturday which made my boss have to work an entire day; from open to close. I felt horrible.
On Saturday night we noticed a red bump on Baby G's leg in the same spot where he had had his most recent vaccination just the week before. It looked like a bug bite, but we didn't really think anything of it - his vaccination had been over a week ago. The next day though the bump was twice the size as the night before and there was a lump under his skin.
So, on Monday morning I had to get the both of us to the doctor. Baby G's pediatrician has drop in hours between 9am and 9:30am. I called my doctor's office at 8:30am to find out if I could get seen that morning. Lucky me, they had an opening at 10am. So we got to the pediatricians at 9am. The doctor said it could be a staph infection and prescribed some antibiotics. We were out of there at 9:45am. I had to be at my doctors office in 15 minutes! I made it there at 9:57am exactly. Got my prescription for antibiotics and we were on our way to the drug store.
Now, I hate taking medication, and one of the things I love about my doctor is that she doesn't hand out prescriptions willy nilly. She will try to find other ways, if possible to fix the problem. For my migraines, which I get once a month, instead of writing out a prescription for the latest migraine medicine she advised me to keep track of my schedule and take a dose of Tylenol or ibuprofen that day. And you know what? It's working.
So, Baby G and I are both on antibiotics, he's feeling great, I'm feeling better. Hopefully I'll be back to new soon. In the meantime I am trying to concentrate on school and getting my apartment cleaned up.
