When it rains it pours

So today I get a call from the director of the daycare saying that I should probably come and look at JJ. He had what looked like a bug bite on his lower abdomen. Today is swelled up and got pretty red, tender, and had a white head on it.

So off to the doctor we went. Turns out that the little bug bite (or what ever it was) turned into a Staph infection. He can't go back to daycare till Monday. That's right folks I will be home with him till Monday. We were assured that if we kept it covered and were vigilant about washing our hands when we touched the area that we will have nothing to worry about.

So we were off to Walgreens to fill his prescription. While I was there I stocked up on some other things that I felt were essentials.

We got home I gave him the medicine, got him all band aided up and now we are sitting at home. I switched from these band aids to big square ones that MORE than covered the area. I wiped everything down with Clorox wipes, washed all of the bedding, and used more hand sanitizer than I care to mention.

JJ is not sick, he is running around like nothing is wrong. Thankfully. Poor kid!

The other thing is that Jay got a temp job that he started today. So I am the one that has to stay home with him. Jay can't really miss day 2 and 3 of his new job!

Aww! I'm glad the little munchkin isn't in pain. Your taking lots of precautions. Hope it goes away real fast. The bright side is you get a long weekend, even if for the wrong reasons!

Oh, my worst fear is about getting those calls. Hope it's all cleared up fast, and that all of you are healthy and happy in no time. Who needs the stress? ;)

Oh my you must have been freaking out at first. But I am guessing things are clearing up by now. HOW do they get this stuff is what I want to know! Seriously.
