So Chip is in the ER waiting for IV antibiotics for cellulitis in his leg. This would I believe be the fifth time this has happened with no apparent injury in the last decade, increasing in frequency over the last few years. (Then there was the infected hangnail that didn't respond to heavy duty doses of oral doxycyline and eventually needed a different antibiotic via IV, but I believe that may not have technically been diagnosed as cellulitis.)

He just let me know they are doing a vascular ultrasound just to double check there isn't something even more exciting, and then presumably IV antibiotics.

I am doing a really good job of being calm for the kids.

But meanwhile there is this thing where I am not actually coherent and everything I say in a written form comes out really terse and needs repeated editing not to sound unintentionally seriously cranky...

And apparently my reading comprehension seriously sucks under stress too...

Yes, I am seriously in favor of aggressively effective antibiotics!

You have a right to be cranky under the circumstances.

*hugs* I'm glad he's at least gone to the hospital--do they have any idea why this keeps happening to him? There's got to be something they're missing...
