This poor kid. He woke up feeling like💩, but had a dermatologist appointment that couldn't be missed (because it takes forever to get in to)! Well, we showed up right at 7:30 as scheduled to find out that I had the date wrong and we weren't supposed to be in until NEXT Wednesday. They were so nice and understanding and the doctor he was scheduled to see squeezed us in! Lots of reasons we went in, but getting a mole removed was NOT on the list. He already felt horrible and really didn't want to do so, pretty much begged me for not today, but knew it needed to go. It was in the middle of his birthmark on his back (which doc told me wasn't a birthmark, but in fact a mole-what the heck??!!). There was a proper name for it, but I can't think straight at this point of my day. The white spot (what I thought was the birthmark) isn't what was removed, pretty sure that is impossible, but the mole in it that I don't remember being there was what was removed. #talkingincircles #imakesensetoprobablyonlyme He goes back to get stitches out in 10 days and to get results.
As soon as we left there, I took him straight to urgent care. When he didn't eat dinner last night and wouldn't eat or drink this morning (or get out of bed---he is always the first one up on his own) I knew there was an issue. He went in and out of being super cold too-thoughts of strep or the flu swirled in my head. Doc took a look at his throat and listened to symptoms and said it was a bacteria infection, treated like strep (so no strep test) and ordered a steroid and antibiotic to hopefully get him well. He has been at home resting all day because his poor body was so tired.
No fun when your babe doesn't feel good. Plus it throws off every part of your day. #prayingwedontgetwhathehas
