Well, I told you that mosquito bite would come back to bite us. (hehe, did you get that??) So Jackson woke up Monday morning with his whole ankle and leg swollen... and what does any mother do?? Panic for a quick second and then jump on Yelp to find an urgent care to take him to. This has happened before, just from scratching I guess and I was afraid of it turning into cellulitis which leads to staph... you don't mess round with that kind of stuff.
My favorite part about this whole escapade was how the nurse tried to take Jackson's blood pressure for about 15 minutes (still never got it) and then the doctor basically told me that this wouldn't have happened if I would have given him benedryl immediately after he got the bug bite... Really, does any other parent do that every single time their kid gets a bug bite?? I kind of shot some darts out of my eyes and then just told the lady at the front that it probably wasn't a good idea to make a momma feel like she's wasting her time with her kid... don't mess with mama bear. My favorite quote was, "I guess I can give you an antibiotic if you really think he needs one." Well sir, my kid's whole leg and ankle are swollen but maybe we will just risk it and hope we don't end up with staph in the hospital. Anyway, rant over, moving on. :) Needless to say, Dr. Brown will not be receiving a Campbell Holiday Christmas card this year.
|For real, at least 15 minutes with this thing haha...|
|Yep, no big deal Dr. Brown. Thanks for your help.|
|This is completely normal after getting a mosquito bite, right everyone? I'm such a silly momma, completely overreacting... ;)|
|Donuts. Because any time you go to the doctor, you get a milkshake or donuts.|
|This is why I love traveling... experiencing new things and seeing their faces just light up.|
|Looking for sea shells. Dad always took us walking up and down the beach looking for shells or shark teeth, love to see him doing that with my little one too!|
|Monkey hat for my little monkey.|
The nice thing about beach time is that your kids take really great naps haha... I would have loved to stay out longer but my boys are soooo fair skinned. Eek! They would have burnt to a crisp! After we played for a little bit and ate lunch, we came back to the condo for naps and coffee time of course.
|Sorry Melissa Hartwig. This is in fact a donut. It's called, "Mommy deserves a donut time."|
After we bought a few pointless items and a really bright t-shirt, we had dinner at he Surfside Sandwich Shop. It was pretty good, really tasty burgers that were HUGE and a variety of things to eat. It was within walking distance from our place so that was nice too! I decided to split the last two days into two posts so come back later for our last day!
