(You can tell in this picture how big his right (left on the screen) cheek is compared to the other one. Poor guy!!)

Hey everyone! I hope you guys are ALL having a great week! Unfortunately ours isn't starting off to well. I have another cold. We have been healthy all winter until these past few weeks. First Grady had an ear infection. Then Craig had to go to urgent care for the worst sinus infection he's ever had. Now I have another cold, this is my 2nd one in just a few short weeks. Then we had to take Jace to urgent care last night and to the er again today. We noticed that the whole right side of his face was really swollen. It is very unusual and came out of no where. We went to urgent care last night and the doctor was a super nice young guy and he hadn't the slightest clue as to what was wrong. He said text book wise it looked like the mumps (OH MY!), but also thought it could possibly be caused by a blocked gland in his cheek or maybe from a tooth or even from a fall he encountered while playing with his brother a few days back but unfortunately couldn't pinpoint anything before we left. So he said to ice it and give him over the counter pain meds like Tylenol etc...

Well today it was even bigger. We couldn't get into our family doctor until tomorrow so we decided to just take him to the er. The doctor there came to the conclusion that it is most likely caused from a filling he had done about a month ago and said there is probably some kind of infection. So he is now on antibiotics for 10 days and we have to go see the dentist tomorrow to get this checked out.

Over all you wouldn't know that anything was wrong with him because he has NO other symptoms and it only hurts if someone touches it. So we are praying that the antibiotics work and that his big chipmunk cheek goes away :(

I have some really great reviews & give-a-ways coming up but I wanted to let you all know that I might be gone for a few days until we figure out what's going on with him and hopefully this cold and runny nose of mine runs away soon ha ha! Oh and on top of all of this we have had bad weather all day- it's rained and lightening and thundered and has been so windy...seriously can someone send us some sunshine!!!

Hope you are all having a great week and I hope to have some good stuff up for you guys soon!
