Ring around the what?

Oh boy.....we went camping last 10 days ago. When we got home I noticed a mosquito bite on Gillian's leg. Gary and I didn't think much of it at the time but here we are 10 days later and its still here with a funky freaking ring around it.

The first thing that crossed my mind was lyme disease. So I called the Pedi last night and got her in today. The doc isn't sure but thinks it may be lyme, or maybe ring worm? The only way to know for sure is to get a lyme tither done. Great. Bloodwork.....

Now our last attempt at bloodwork sucked. Big time. Horrible.

We decided to head to CCMC this time so the pro's could help. While we were at it we decided to grab Finn's paperwork for her missed bloodwork at her year appt too.

Off we wasn't as much of a nightmare as I imagined.........For me. I'm not going to lie. I couldn't be in the room. Just couldn't do it. So Gary did the holding while I took the other baby and walked around. They managed to get them both though!

Finley did end up with a collapsed vein and I think it was bugging her some because she was whiny and every time she looked at her band aid she would shake her finger at it and start to cry again. We even tried Ice Cream to calm them down but that didn't even work. Poor babies.

We finally got them in the car and put on Elmo. Then they stopped crying. Thank goodness for Elmo.

So, that was our day, five hours of doctors and hospitals.

Pray Gillian doesn't have Lyme. I've never wanted her to have ringworm so bad in my life! Strange right??!!

We thought for sure we had ringworm a few months ago. Even put foot cream on it to make it go away. Turned out to be a form of eczema! Either way I'm hoping it's not lymes!
