It's not over yet...you'd think that by 3 weeks later it would be all healed up and feeling okay. Nope....it's been looking really bad. Red, puffy, irritated..it's been real tender to the touch and there's a weird lumpiness (is that a word?) under the skin. Then yesterday morning he comes up from his room and he's got a black eye. HUH?? I called the dr. office and was told to come in last night to have it looked at. He has an infection brewing under the skin. The topical part is looking okay after a week of overnight triple antibiotic treatments, but all the rest of the mess needed to be treated. So, now he's on an antibiotic.....a $71 antibiotic! Good greif....we're over $200 into this injury. Dang, kids are expensive. I think I'm going to ducktape them all to the couch, turn on the TV and forbid them to get hurt anymore.
