Because of this culprit (a toothpick) led Oscar to urgent care, Sunday after the super bowl Oscar was playing in the playroom kicking a balloon and happen to kick a toothpick and it landed in his baby toe! well he pulled it out and Boyd looked to see if there was any splinters left in his toe, he pulled a few, put peroxide on it and we thought good to go, little did we know, that we ended up in Urgent Care Tuesday night cause it looked alittle infected and I didn't want to mess with infection!
So this is the BRAVE little guy who sat there while they stuck a needle in his toe, so they could slice it open a little to see if there was any wood left in his toe! they didn't see any, so it led to this
Oscar had to get a BIG dose of Antibiotic right in his Buttocks!!! which led to this
Having to soak his foot FOUR times a day for four days along with taking a oral antibiotic for ten days, and proping it up and stays home from school for two days.. I didn't think a toothpick could do such harm, but the Dr. said our bodies do not take to organic substance like wood and it because of the bacteria that could of been on it, he had a red streak going up his foot that the Dr. showed us which is a sign of infection which is not good, non the less I'm just glad we felt like it should be looked at and that we listened to our feelings of going! They are an awesome urgent care if anyone has a need for after hours they are on Mckellips and Mesa Dr. and is called Southwest Urgent Care! they are very nice and I really like the Dr. there and I would go back in a heart beat!!!! Thank you Dr. Bingham for taking such good care of Oscar...
