Thomas’s Toe

So Friday when school started, Thomas was complaining his toe hurts. I didn’t worry too much about it at the time. He’s 5 years old, almost 6. He gets bumps and scrapes and such so it isn’t unusual for something to hurt.

So imagine my surprise when he showed me the “bump” on his toe last night. A nice big blister full of pus. We know it’s full of pus because not long after he showed it to me, it popped.

So I gathered him up in the car, hoping it wasn’t too late for an urgent care to be open. It was by about 15 minutes. Piss, shit, fuck, fine. I took him to the local emergency room. His toe was swollen enough I wanted to be sure it wasn’t broken.

They took x-rays and swabbed the discharge. Then the bandaged it up nice and good.

It isn’t broken, just infected.

So he has a good old fashioned anti-biotic, and ibuprofen to help with the pain. We are also suppose to soak it in Epsom salts 3-4 times a day.

Other than that the little man is fine.

Though he is racking up one hell of a medical bill this week. Thank god for our insurance.
