    Default our dr is crazy!

    Had to take DS to the dr today bc this morning out of nowhere his foot swells up. (at first glance I would have sworn it was broken it was so swollen and funky looking...except that he was running around on it) When I was able to get him to let me look at it, I noticed a spot that looked like a bug bite. SO we are guessing spider maybe? so I call the dr at 10am. appt scheduled for 2:15. arrive at 2:00 back in the room shortly after....and no dr until 3:30. conclusion. some kind of allergic reaction to a bug bite. no clue what type. Dr's orders? elevate even or above chest level, ice and benedryl every 6 hours for the weekend..... seriously?? Elevate the foot and ice it for a 3 yr old???? :ROTFL: yeah. no chance of that. so I did manage to get benedryl in him and am icing it now that he's passed out

    LOL, well I guess you can only do so much. Will he lay still if you put a movie on? I'm sure the doctor didn't mean he needed ice on it the WHOLE weekend.

    I'd be so choked if I sat in a room for 1.5 hours waiting. Ok, so he was nice and fit you in...but seriously!

    Do you wrap the ice pack in a cloth or anything?
