Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

Sick, again.

It was a rough week here but the week ended well.  We've all been sick, but the Bud has been the sickest.  Strep throat for my little one.  But worse than that - an allergic reaction to the antibiotics.  It was very scary.  Since this was her first time on this antibiotic I watched her closely and noticed swelling in her face within a few hours.  I refused to give her another dose and got a different prescription the very next day.  It happened in the best way that such a thing could happen.

But here's the thing.  It seems like all the things that happen to my little one happen to her face.  And she's got such a lovely face.  Her face is still swollen and I'm afraid it won't go back to her usual self.  All the anxiety makes me feel vain.  I just want her to get better and to be able to take all these emotions and box them up.  Box it all up and drop that box to the bottom of the Mississippi.

I didn't think I would have any photos but I did find one from the morning before the doctor's appointment.  I'm not so far behind in my photo project as I thought I was.



  1. Oh no! I hope she's feeling better. What a scary experience with the medicine!
