51 Weeks: Are you kidding me?

51 Weeks: Are you kidding me?

If you've been reading this blog for the past 3 months, I've been inundating you with my child's latest ailments. As not to disappoint you...Periorbital cellulitis. I'm really not fond of my child having something that I have trouble pronouncing and have to look at 5 times to make sure I'm spelling right. In fact, I'm getting a little angry about it. I'm starting to lose my patience with it all and I'm about ready to move to the country, home school my children and grow/ raise our own food all in a giant bubble.
The good news is that the Periorbital cellulitis hasn't evolved into Orbital cellulitis. The latter is when I go from comfort-eating to yelling at everyone in the vicinity for no reason.
The break-down is that his cold turned into a sinus infection, which turned into a skin-infection surrounding his eye. The above photo was taken yesterday and it looks much worse today. It's never good when the nurses stop and gasp when you're walking back to your room at the doctor's office...never good, those ladies have seen it all. A couple of them were waiting outside the door wanting to know the doctor's prognosis. I didn't feel flattered for the attention.
