Fun with black and white. Fun being a Mom.
I know these last two pictures are not black and white, but they're pictures of Noah that were taken after a quick trip to the emergency room. On Thursday afternoon, as I was changing his diaper, I noticed his penis was terribly swollen. I immediately called the doctor and they were at lunch. Luckily I had my sister, Brian and Sara T. to keep me calm until I talked to a nurse. I finally talked to a nurse and she said as long as he is not in pain that it can wait until the following morning when they could squeeze us in. Well, after Brian got home, I told him to go look at it and it was worse then he had imagined and Noah was definitely showing signs of pain and it was MUCH MUCH LARGER. So, I paged a doctor and she said as long as he is urinating it could wait until the morning, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to take him in, if I wanted. I e-mailed a picture of it to Brian's Mom and she suggested taking him to the ER with the fear that throughout the night it may continue to swell and he won't be able to pee. It was huge, friends, huge. It looked like a huge red intertube underneath the head of the penis, it was not right. LUCKILY, by the Grace of God, there was NO WAIT at the emergency room. Crazy, huh? They diagnosed it as a severe yeast infection caused by the antibiotics he is on, prescribed a cream, checked his ears (one is still infected) and sent us on our merry way! Today, it's much better! It's still really red, but it's much smaller! I love this boy.
