Last weekend we went camping with Liz, Julie, Chris, and Jean and all of our families. It was SO MUCH FUN!!! Lance was the only one who wasn't able to make it (because of work) so there were 12 kids and 9 adults. We headed to Lake Spokane which is about 40 minutes west of our house. The campsites were nice and big but the dirt was such a fine powder that everything got dirty and I mean DIRTY!
Lots of marshmallows
And goofy faces of each of my kids
Just then Daddy surprised us! He drove up for the day and we were so surprised to see him which was great timing because all Kimball wanted was his dad.
Then we headed down to the lake for some water fun.
By sunday morning, this was Kimball's face - so red and hugely swollen. He cried all during breakfast because he couldn't open his mouth to eat. He was in a lot of pain. I toyed with the idea of taking him into urgent care and decided to go after church. Boy am I glad I did! The doctor said he had a bad infection so he gave him two shots of antibiotics in his legs and sent him home on a liquid antibiotic. He said if the swelling and redness continued within the next 24 hours to take him into the ER for a CT scan and to be admitted. Apparently the infection was BAD! I felt so bad for him because the swelling was causing him so much pain, he couldn't open his mouth to eat, and couldn't even smile.
By the next morning the swelling went down a lot. I think the Lord was watching over him because the dog missed his eye and sinuses and if I hadn't the "just in the case" feeling to take him into the doctor, he would've ended up in the ER by the second day. Tender mercies!
