It has definitely been one of those weeks, and it seems like it continues - with a stream of numerous doctor's appointments that feel endless. Almost two weeks ago, I was battling a tooth infection, which landed me in Urgent Care. Of course antibiotics followed, but I have still not been able to get in to see a dentist. It appears it has to be almost an emergency for dental work. 😞
Just this last week, my son had to visit Urgent Care because he thought he had sprained his foot and he could barely walk on it. Turned out to be a bacterial skin infection in his foot and they ended up hospitalizing him for observation and putting him on a high does on antibiotics through an IV. After several x-rays and MRIs, the infection turned out to be none other than cellulitis. The strange thing is, you usually get this type of infection from bacteria entering either a wound, or an animal bite - which my son had neither of. 🙁 It actually baffled the doctors that they could find nothing on his foot indicating this. He was finally able to come home and is on another round of antibiotics, with a follow up visit this Tuesday. The swelling and redness in his foot has definitely subsided, so that tells me the antibiotics are working.
Just scheduled a well check for my daughter too, and she is being referred to both a cardiologist and neurologist. Here we go again. I am so scared that her anxiety will go through the roof if they do a stress test on her. She is already on three different types of meds. We will see. Prayers would be nice.
