It's always somethin'

Well, I don't know how, or why, but Trey got a really bad staph infection in a not so good place.  His man parts were very red and swollen and oozing puss.  Gross, I know.  It developed overnight and got bad, really fast.  Thankfully, we caught it early and took him to the doctor where he got a heavy duty antibiodic shot in his butt and oral meds. Our pediatrician was on the line whether or not to directly admit him to the hospital for a couple of days for IV antibiodics.  Instead, he sent us home with a f/u appt first thing in the morning so he could monitor it closely.  Thankfully, Trey responded well to the shot and did not have to go to the hospital!  After the first two days of antibiodics, he felt fine.  Although it's still a little red and swollen, it looks much more normal now.
