My sweet baby...



Yesterday was Nolan Elijah's 5th "Gotcha Day"! Such a wonder that it's been that long. I can still remember all the drama that led up to his homecoming. So very thankful God chose this priceless treasure for our family!!



We had big plans for the day....visit the local park...then the library...and then picnic in our yard for lunch. However, they were all cut short quickly by Samuel waking up with a fever and the inside of his nose very swollen. Not too long after breakfast as I was trying to work on our finicky pool (and praying for a miracle that we could swim in it this season!) Nolan was sobbing and holding his hand. After a few minutes it was ascertained that he was stung by a yellow jacket or a hornet. I have no idea how many times but within minutes his finger was huge! Then his sweet little hand followed looking like the skin was going to burst it was soooo swollen. I gave him B*nadryl and watched him closely hoping we wouldn't have to head to the ER again like we did last summer. Fast forward to this morning....he walks downstairs and his eyes are almost swollen closed and his little face so puffy. :( Poor little guy. He's such a good sport though, he hasn't complained beyond his fingers hurting when he tries to bend them. The fingers are less swollen, the hand is still pretty big, the wrist and arm are still a bit puffy but he's running, laughing and eating so all is well. We've prayed over him telling the poison to be gone and it is leaving!

Nolan said yesterday the bee was saying "gotcha" to Nolan too. LOL! 
Happy, happy "Gotcha Day" to our precious Nolan!

Try an activated charcoal poultice... It sucks the poison (and the pain) up like you would not believe. My mom used to always use them on us kids...
