My twelve year old niece has staph infection…
Wednesday, she went in for her tetanus booster and came out with the expected stiff and sore arm. Yesterday, I was over at her house, and she was complaining about how bad her arm was hurting her. I recalled my tetanus booster, and remembered that my arm ached for over a week, so her complaints seemed normal.
Last night, her arm had a small red spot around the area of the shot. Her dad drew a circle around it, and they all went to bed. This morning the red spot was outside of the circle. They took her back to the doctor, and it was determined that she has a staph infection.
I just got off the phone with her, and she about made me cry. She said everything hurts – her arm, her neck, her back, her head… She just feels lousy.
This is her last week of summer, and this is definitely not how she had planned on spending it.
She would sure appreciate any extra prayers or good thoughts you might have lying around.
