Day 5

Yesterday was an eventful day.  In the morning I noticed what looked like a bug bite on Aidan's forehead but didn't think much of it.  When he got home from school his face was much more swollen and redder.  I put some cortisone cream on it and off we went to soccer practice.  After practice it looked much worse. It didn't bother him at all. I sent a picture of it to a doctor friend I work with who said it looked like an infection. I called his doctor who squeezed us in.  It's most likely a cellulitis from a bug bite so he wrote a prescription for an antibiotic with instructions to watch it closely.  I was up half the night with worry.  The swelling did spread a little more but the redness has gone a bit. I have to go to his school at lunch time to give him a dose and hopefully it will be looking better.

This is what it looked like last night, you can see the swelling by the dent in his skin from his glasses
