Bug Bite!

So about a week and half ago, Taylor was bit by 2 bugs. If anybody saw her bite from last summer you will know that she reacts badly to bug bites. It gets swollen and red. Well this happened right after the bites and went away by this past Thursday. She woke up from her nap yesterday complaining about the area being sore and itchy. Well it was red and swollen again and spreading. My initial thought was infection but left it till today to see what would come of it. She woke up today and it was worse so of to the South Calgary Health Centre or whatever it is called. I was there with both kids for 3 1/2 hours. Not too bad but long enough for a toddler to stay in one place. I was out of snacks by hour 2. So as I thought, she has an infection. She is now on a strong course of antibiotics for a week. One of the side effects is diarreha. The pharmacist said to be prepared for it. So I guess it is back to diapers for a few days. I don't think pull ups will hold that stuff. That has been our day. Other than that our day has been a pretty lazy one.

I was gonna stick with just Devo but I wasn't sure if we were 'tight' enough for that so I added the n and ended up spelling it wrong. Sorry!
Now we definately aren't 'tight' enough.
