Sometimes a weekend can just kick your butt! This was one of those. It started last week with Simon having an infection on this thumb. He bites his nails (just like his daddy) and we think he tore a hangnail up too high and it got infected. Tim tried to drain it Thursday morning and didn't have much luck, I tried after his bath on Thursday and got most of the pus out, but by Friday morning it was all full again, as I was trying to drain it again, the sitter called saying she was sick-throwing up and wouldn't be in.
Luckily my mom was at our house and she was able to cancel her plans and stay with the boys for the day. Then I took Simon to the doctor to have his thumb drained and she prescribed antibiotics so it wouldn't get further infected.
When I got home we had to leave right away to take my mom home as she had a meeting at 6:00 with a church group. In the meantime Mom told me that Eli's belly and back was covered in a rash. Then I remembered he sounded like he had a sore throat Friday morning. I was fearing Scarlett Fever since he's had it before.
We picked up Simon's prescription, got home and ate and I looked at Eli's rash, it reminded me of Scarlett Fever, but our after-hours clinic doesn't accept our insurance anymore so I wasn't sure what to do since it was so late. Meanwhile Jesse was whining and fussy like I've never seen-he's teething and has such a hard time with it. I decided to call the doctor first thing in the morning if Eli's rash wasn't gone.
Saturday morning I did some research on Scarlett Fever and I was sure that's what Eli had so I called the doc and luckily our doc was on call and she called in a prescription for him. We picked that up and got everyone going on their medicine.
I wanted to go see my friend's new baby and Tim's grandma this weekend, but with a highly contagious boy and a teething baby it just wasn't going to happen. We did a lot of laundry, washed toys in bleach that Eli had played with, that kind of thing. Good times!
I did get a break on Sunday afternoon for about an hour and 45 minutes while I ran. I even took Jesse to the grocery with me since Tim was having a time with him. Jesse is working on two teeth and one I can now see the white of so it shouldn't be long for that one.
Everyone is on the mend now so that's good but I'm still worn out.
