Quick Update

Posts will be scarce from me for the next few days, we're heading off to the beach house for a long weekend and some desperately needed R&R.

I'm super tired and need the break, I was with Cam in the Pediatric Ward at our local hospital overnight. I took him to the emergency room yesterday afternoon, while playing in the garden at day care he had been bitten by some kind of insect in a Very Sensitive Place ... and he had a very bad allergic reaction. We're thinking while sitting down, something must have crawled under his clothes. The swelling was something to see, the poor little guy! The doctors were wonderful and very concerned, and rather than treating him and sending him home, they had him on an IV and admitted him.

He's bounced back remarkably, and armed with an array of medicines and the doctor's blessing, we're heading off this afternoon. I'm really looking forward to having a snooze in the car.

Have a great weekend all!

Ouch! Glad all is well. Have a nice weekend. The weather is cool and overcast here - 40 C sounds terrible

Ewww, what a scare! Glad to hear he is bouncing back. Kids are so resilient, aren't they?!Have a great little vacation.

No wonder you need a rest - I'll bet you didn't get any sleep at the hospital! I'm glad Cam is none the worse for wear. Have a great weekend.

Oh dear - poor Cam! Glad you getting away - have a good weekend and have a swim for me - okay!

Wow! How scary. There are so many lethal insects in Australia that I am not surprised that the doctors took it seriously. Glad to hear that he is on the mend. Enjoy your well-earned vacation.

Poor little fella! :( That does NOT sound like a fun BOOBOO. Have a great time at the beach (that sounds soooo funny from this side of the pond for this time of the year LOL).

UGH poor baby...

My uncle had a hernia in that area - so many doctors (teaching hospital) came to see it that he flashed a poor room cleaner on accident, as he was ready for the "lets see it."

glad he feeling better!

enjoy the sun & surf!

Oh poor little guy. But it kind of gives me the creepy crawlies....

Glad Cam is okay - aiyeee. The zigzag quilt is loads of fun. Definitely fabulous to share scrap blocks with a friend.

I'm glad to hear your little guy is doing so much better. Poor boy!!!

Have a wonderful time at the beach.

Susan said...

Poor little guy, indeed! The stress from that experience alone would be enough to warrant a trip to the beach. Have a great time.

P.S. LOVE the 9 patch zigzag!
