I'm cringing at the thought of it! Make sure she eats some yogurt with live cultures or some probiotics with her antibiotics. That will keep her digestive tract healthy and maybe prevent a yeast infection.

P.S. It's not GOOD to impress the ER folks!

I bought a couple boxes of Go-gurt for the kids yesterday. I'll remind her to make sure she eats some. I'll pick up some regular yogurt tomorrow. I completely spaced it! Thanks

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.

OMG! I just saw this! Hopefully your daughter is up and around by now, and I'm glad there was no serious damage to more than her pride and your sanity. It definitely sounds like something that would have happened to one of my kids. I think our hospital ER was about to put a guest suite in for my family because of our sons repeated visits. They could probably have named a wing after us...

She's much better, Charlotte. We saw the Dr Wednesday and its healing fine.

My mom always said the ER staff knew her by name, we were there so much. Lol

Whoa!!

That reminds me of this episode of an old show, Mystery Diagnosis, where a woman walked into a crotchet hook she had accidentally dropped onto the floor and impaled her foot on it.

Well, I don't want to scare you with the details, so I won't say anything more. I am just glad that all your daughter has as a result of the impalement, is a sore backside.

Thanks, Artchic. She is completely healed now, no worse for the wear, but it's another embarrassing story I get to tell about her!
