OUCH!

Remember this post...about how horrible shots were?!?

Then, you won't believe this!

Poor Meg had a reaction to one of her immunizations. Her leg was bright red, swollen, and feverish. Meg spent the night on Thursday with her grandparents, so I didn't even know about it until after they dropped her off on Friday night. Around 9:00, we were getting ready for bed and she took off her pants and her leg was the first thing I saw. I freaked out!!! She claimed it didn't hurt, but it looked very painful. So, I called the after hours nurse to find out what I needed to do. By 9:45, I was applying warm and cold compresses for 15 minutes each for the next 1.5 hours.

On Saturday morning, it wasn't any better. I ended up taking her to the Urgent care. They told me to to give her Benadryl and Motrin (if there was any discomfort). The Benadryl seemed to do the trick, because today it looks so much better!

That looks painful! Poor Meg!!

I am so happy the Benadryl worked. I hear that stuff can work wonders!

Awww...poor baby! Tommy had a reaction to his 4 year shots, too. His arm got so swollen he couldn't wear a polo shirt. It took a day or so and then looked better.
