I took Ella to the OD this morning and she diagnosed her with Pre-septal cellulitis. She is now on antibiotics. Hopefully they will kick in soon and she will start to look better. It doesn't seem to bother her, so that is good.

Ella woke up this morning like this. One eye swollen to the point almost shut. I waited most of the day before calling the Dr. to find out they were on vacation. Lovely.

Call our dear friend who is also a Physicians Assistant to ask her if I should take action to the ER. She came. She saw. "Impressive" she said. At this point we are treating it like an allergic reaction. Maybe to Hank the Guinea Pig. She gave her Prednizone. Lovely.

A two year old on steroids. Lovely.

OK, Grace is very worried about Baby Edda, and is talking about her owie non-stop.

I just read your comment on Lynda's blog and it cracked me up cause we both said OH MY HAYDAY! ;) I just spelled it wrong abopve... Ooops!

wow, I just got off the phone with you, we all prayed for Ella's eye to heal at 9 pm. I hope you will not have to goto the ER. Call me if you need me.

Ouch! That looks painful. I hope her eye is on the mend now that she's been medicated. I'll pray for her (and you too!)

That doesn't look so good! Praying it will clear up soon...keep us posted.

Poor baby girl! She probably needs a big Auntie Lynda hug! I will be up there on Friday, and I got a whole dollars worth of college ruled note books from Walmart for you! That's 20!
