One Crazy Weekend

Before I blog about our weekend, I forgot to add these pics of Sophia from last week. She was one lucky girl and got a present from her best bud's mom and dad (Atticus), straight from Hawaii. Gotta love her hula dance.

Thanks Tricia and Apollo!

Now to the crazy part of our weekend. About 2 weeks ago, I noticed a lump, growth, whatever you want to call it in my under arm area. It kept getting bigger and bigger. It appeared to either be a swollen gland or an ingrown hair. Finally, I got the brilliant idea that I'd poke it with a sterilized needle. I know....brilliant right! That was on Thursday night. Well, apparently poking it with a needle ticked it off because it got really inflamed, sore and continued to swell. That went on until Saturday when I noticed red lines going down my arm. So off to Care Now I went. I'd never been before and it actually wasn't bad. Apparently, it was a cyst that got infected. And poking it with a needle didn't help it. They said they think it's a staph infection (they took sample to culture and see what kind of infection it is). I won't even discuss the ongoing treatment that I'm undergoing. It's just too gross. And DEFINITELY no pics.

Now to the relaxing part of our weekend.....

Visiting with Uncle Brice and Aunt Cynthia

Planting Sophia's peanut plant she started growing at school.

And swimming at Nana and Paw-Paw's.

Thank goodness Paw-Paw was such a good sport to get in the freezing water.
