DSD came home from visitation with her mom with a slightly red puncture wound on er hand. at 5:30pm by the time it was 6 30pm it started swelling realy bad and geting very red so I got her to the ER. within 20 minutes of being there the infection spread up her arm to her elbow. :( She came home last night though. They used a VERY agressive IV antibiotic and it started to receide by 12AM. She is such a tough girl. We have to check in this afternoon and if it has not receded enough (which it has alot) she will have to have another IV.


Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that disturbs cell growth in your nervous system, causing tumors to form on nerve tissue. These tumors may develop anywhere in your nervous system, including in your brain, spinal cord and nerves. Neurofibromatosis is usually diagnosed in childhood or early adulthood.

roses. -_-. She says her moms cat did not play rough with her and the dog is a boxer so if he bit it would have been much larger. She was doing roses and got pricked.

Jeez! I've never seen a reaction to a thorn like that before, poor kid! Glad she's okay now, though.

It is really weird when that happens ...my son stepped on a bee one time and the next evening his foot swelled up and he started running a fever... I thought it was an allergic reaction... The doctor said no. It was a bacterial infection

Her mom cleaned it with saline and neosporin. It was only a little red when she got home and got REALY bad within an hours time. It just became very agressive.

yep. That is what the ER dr said. He told us if we waited to much longer and the infection had spread to her armpit it would have been very dangerious. Even an hour could have made a HUGE diffrence with as fast as it was spreading. -_- .
