It's been quite a day...

Well instead of going to church...we visited the ER. I noticed on Friday that I had a place on my face. I thought it might have been an under the skin pimple (gross I know, but the kind that really hurts), Well it kept swelling Saturday and was VERY painful! I told hubs that if it swells any more, that we were going to go to the walk in clinic in the morning. Well I woke up and my eye was swollen. We made the trip to the ER, waited an hour in the waiting room, was taken back, the doc looked at it and poked at it (I almost CRIED it hurt so bad), they hooked me up to IV antibiotics, and I waited....I had a CT scan done in case they needed to release some gross stuff and let me tell you...CT scans are so bizarre. They had to shoot up this die into my IV so that they could see the veins and blood vessels in my face. The die felt so strange. It was the weirdest feeling ever. Well we waited some more and about 5 hours total, they determined that it was just an infected place. Treated it with antibiotics 4 times a day and warm compresses every so often. We came home and I rested for a bit.


My plans were suppose to be: go to church and then come home to paint our bedroom with my friend Lindsey. Well I decided that I wasn't going to let this face issue stop me from painting, so Linds came down and we painted one wall of my bedroom! I'm so excited to reveal my new room soon to all of you! Hopefully the swelling in my face will go down soon!

For now, I'm signing off and watching the last Harry Potter with hubby so we can be ready to see the newest one in theaters on Tuesday!
