My poor boy.

Last night while undressing Jacob for his bath we noticed a big red spot on the side of his thigh. I touched it, and there was a huge lump underneath. So I called the Naval Hospital and they said to keep an eye on it. If it started to bother him, felt hot to the touch, or he had a fever to call back for an appointment. So this morning when he woke up I felt it, and it was way hot. He screamed at me, and pushed my hand away. I called and they got me an appointment for 3:30. I decided that I didn't want to wait though, and so I went to the ER.

Turns out my little one has cellulitis.I've always heard of marines getting it and things like that. Never did I think my 15 month old would. I'm not even really sure how he could have got it. I mean I know germs are everywhere, but this just baffles my mind. I feel so bad for him. They gave us antibiotics, which are hell trying to get a 15 month old to take. And some motrin for pain. It looks to me like it might be getting worse, but I will give it until tomorrow to see if the antibiotics do anything. I'm going to make an appointment with his PCM regardless though. If the anti-biotics don't work then they'll have to cut it open and drain it. That will absolutely break my heart. I don't even know how I could handle that. And thinking about how Jacob will feels makes it worse. So if you pray, can you pray that this works and we don't need to do that route. And if you don't, can you keep Jacob in your thoughts. He's still my baby and I hate that he has to deal with this ;/
