My poor girl was bitten by something over the weekend and by Monday morning the bite was swollen, red, hot and sore – obviously infected.
We’ve speculated all week about what might have bitten Izzy. Was it just a mozzie bite that she scratched and let some nasty bugs in? Or maybe a white tail spider? We’ll never know, but we do know she ended up with a major staph infection and we needed to try several antibiotics before we found one that looks like it is working.
We’ve also spent all week telling tales of being bitten by things…
I told Izzy the story of my brother claiming he’d been ‘bitten’ by a chicken when he was a kid – even though chickens have don’t have teeth.
Dad told the story of when I suddenly ran in the front door shrieking with my pants around my ankles as a paper wasp had flown up the leg of my shorts and bitten me on the thigh.
And Zoe told the story of when she was a toddler and her twin sister bit her on the bottom!
These funny, painful, crazy stories have helped my girl feel a little less like a ‘freak’ with her swollen, sore arm, and made taking the ‘disgusting revolting vomit-like’ medicine a little easier.
But we’re running out of bite stories… so I was wondering if you guys could help me out?
Have you been bitten by something?
Have you been bitten in an odd place?
Have you got a funny, interesting, crazy bite story you can share??
You may have noticed that things have changed a little around here (if you are reading via a feed reader pop over and have a look). I’ve been working behind the scenes on a design update and theme change which went live earlier this week. There are still a few gaps and tweaks that need to be done, but I’m going with the ‘done is better than perfect‘ idea.
If anyone sees anything odd, or not working, I’d really appreciate it if you could leave me a comment or send an email and let me know what the trouble is and what browser you are using. Thanks!
