Back to the Doctor

This morning I’m taking CG back to the pediatrician to have her toe looked at. Last night it looked okay, but not great. This morning it is a lot redder, more swollen, and leaking a lot of fluid – so obviously they didn’t get all the infection out. Since CG won’t let ME touch it to avoid a doctor visit, it’s back to the doctor we go. I’ve already left messages with Mr. BIL and CG’s teacher to advise them of this morning’s drop-in. I’m hoping to get out of there as fast as Denis did yesterday when he took her.

Update at 9 a.m.: The pediatrician refused to see her without an appointment, and there wasn’t one until 11:30 a.m. So I decided to drain the infection myself. I got some out, but not all. But the screaming coming out of my daughter’s mouth was unbearable so I stopped and called the pediatrician back. Miracle – they had a 10 a.m. cancellation! So we’re home for the next 45 minutes and then I’ll take her in.

  1. I had a really bad infection in my toe/nail a few weeks ago and a warm vinegar soak followed by a rinse in peroxide, then neosporin + bandaid really helped a lot.

  2. The doctor squeezed out more stuff this morning and also advised to do hot soaks, including one right away. So I took the girl home, bleach washed the bathtub, and then soaked her foot in a Hibiclense/water solution for about 5-10 minutes. Will do the same tonight before bed.

  3. I think in # 2 above I came across as more of a buttinski than I intended. I apologize.

    I am sometimes more like my father than I care to admit.

    Love all round,

  4. By the way, you need a picture for Uncle Bill ~ it would be fun to see if you can find something that resembles him, as well as my likeness in the above photo.
