I was in so much pain the night before Peyton left for camp that every time Jayden saw me do anything all he would say is “it’s just so sad!’. I have to admit I was a pretty good sport about the neighbor’s cat biting me but I can’t tell you the pain I was in. It was horrible! I went to the doctor the morning after it happened, and by that night my arm was huge. I knew I had to go to the ER but I wanted to wait until we got Peyton off to camp. I also didn’t want him worrying about me if I had to stay in the hospital.
Jason took a personal day, so as soon as Peyton was off to school with the rest of the 4th grade and we went straight to the ER. I was admitted and ended up staying for five days. ugh.
I can’t believe how big my arm was!
When I texted my mom friends who were at Sky Ranch they were the sweetest! Sending pictures of everything Peyton was doing. I was in the hospital the whole time he was at camp, plus a few days. I loved seeing the pictures everyone texted me. Peyton was having a blast.
Peyton and his buddy sent these two, they were on the bus and SO excited! Peyton never knew I was in the hospital until he got home.
Learning so much already!
Meanwhile back at the hospital…. We waited in the ER lobby for a couple of hours, then got moved to an ER room while they got me a real room set up. Jason brought Jayden to the hospital after school. Little Jayden always such a trooper and of course “It’s just so sad Mommy!” Gotta love him!
Camp pictures were flooding in and I LOVED it! I love my OCT moms!
I had Jason bring my oils. I couldn’t take it anymore. (Every nurse and doctor who walked into my room commented on the smell.) Thieves, so much better than hospital smell.
More Sky Ranch fun!
Learning so much!
Peyton had a blast and came to see me as soon as he got off the bus from camp. Poor thing was worn out. I stayed in the hospital a couple days longer, but they visited every chance they got. Love my three guys!
I also love my friends and family for coming to see me, sending gifts and flowers. I was hooked up to all kinds of IVs but they made sure I didn’t starve or bore myself to death. Love, love all of you! Also, so thankful for our church and their online campus!!!
We were all relieved to find out the cat was up to date on her rabies shot. Jason and the boys went down to the street to talk to the neighbor about her cat. Turns out the cat is really sweet but has a dark side. Ya think? It was in quarantine for 10 days and thank goodness doesn’t have any diseases or anything. We had NO IDEA cats could do such damage with one cat bite. I had to see a hand specialist and had my arm wrapped for a few weeks. Also lots of antibiotics….. Not a fun ride, and I will always think twice about other people’s cats now even if they rub around my legs like sweet cats do. NO! NO THANKS!
