Travels are Done!

Momcat and Philip are home! They had an eventful week.

The day before they were scheduled to leave Philip went to the urgent care to see about a horrible rash that Benadryl and Cortaid weren't helping. They diagnosed him with a staph infection (YIKES!) and weren't happy that he was going to be traveling for the next five days. The three doctors that they called in said that he'd have to be in long sleeves and long pants for the entire time. He received Rx for steroids and antibiotics.

His system responded well, but the trips to do a lot of outside things such as going to the beach were canceled.

Just today, the creeping crud started back up with a vengeance so he sees the primary care physician tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. Prayers please! Considering Philip just has two classes to finish up before graduation in December, we really don't want a health matter to alter his schedule, much less all the other things that occur as a result of staph.

Here's Darren and Philip in the hotel room (which was only about 2 minutes away from Darren and Nicole's beautiful apartment). Boy, does this bring back memories of two little boys with their heads together playing an electronic game!

And Philip knows exactly that's what Momcat is thinking!

They all walked from Darren and Nicole's apartment to one of their favorite restaurants, the Elephant Bar and Grill. Philip took this shot of Nicole, Darren and Momcat (Linda). Momcat's hair is certainly showing the aftermath of a warm walk!

Another restaurant patron was kind enough to take this group shot of Momcat with her beloved kids.

There was a quilt shop visit in the travels as well! More on that in tomorrow's post, plus an update on poor Philip's health.

Purring to have my family home,

It's hard to believe that my own two little boys may one day be that big and grown! Here's hoping they fix Philip up quickly. My oldest had a staph infection this past year, and luckily we were able to squash it quickly.
