Elliott and I are already at the pediatrician’s office. The redness and swelling is continuing to spread and Elliott says his arm feels like it’s on fire.
He’s pretty nervous but handling it well. I, on the other hand, am pretty freaked out. They said over the phone that one of the concerns is cellulitis, if the swelling continues. We have been putting on cool compresses on his arm all morning but it doesn’t seem to be helping much.
We just can’t seem to win. As I was leaving this morning, I accidentally shut Emmett’s finger in the goddamn door. He had reach to grab the door and stop me from shutting it and I didn’t see his little hand there. Father of the year……sigh 🙁
