had one ROUGH day yesterday. After waking to find that her dad had skipped town in the wee hours of the morning, she had to go to the doctor. Once there, she found out her ear is STILL 'abnormal' and they were going to have to bring out the 'big guns'... a 3 day dose of antibiotics THROUGH SHOTS! Plus, she's being referred to an ENT which will probably mean tubes are in her future. She had to get the first dose of antibiotic that day, whose thick needle and vile smelling medicine made a spilling over bulge in her leg and even made her non-squeamish mom get queasy. I tried to make it up to her by taking her for 'bok- bok' (McDonald's chicken nuggets) and watching 'the wiggles' together on the couch. While standing on the couch next to me, she leaned over the arm to reach a book on the end table and before I knew it she was completely vertical. All I saw was her feet in the air and heard the sickening thud of skull hitting tile. Her cheek and eye managed to hit the bottom shelf of the end table somehow, too.
Here is the result this morning. Pictures don't really do the knot on her head justice. I sure am glad that our Christmas photos are already taken and processing.
She's been such a good girl despite it all. After shot #2 today, we packed up and went to see Luke.... the ULTIMATE treat, as Luke is her favorite thing in the entire world.
We'll back at the stinkin' doctor's office tomorrow morning for round 3. Poor kid.
