Trip to the ER

Yesterday morning I decided to work on the garden and other chores instead of school.  Well, we didn’t get much school done, but the chores didn’t get done either.  Kiddo had a run-in with a rake (actually it was more like a pitchfork).  It got her between the toes.  I debated what to do, I ended up taking her to the ER and we spent about 3 hours there.  They just cleaned it up and put her on antibiotics.  I thought that would be the end of that until she got up this morning.   Her foot was red, tender, swollen and draining some.  I took her into her regular doctor today and the Dr was very concerned.  She drew a line around the red part of Kiddo’s foot and told me to watch it.  If the red spread beyond the line I have to take her back to the ER.  They also gave Kiddo a shot of wide spectrum antibiotics. 

It has been a couple of hours since Kiddo got the shot and her foot is still swollen, but the redness is fading. It looks like the antibiotics are working.  Maybe we won’t have to go back to the ER.
