What is that?


We went to the doctor yesterday because Denver was getting this horrible rash of hives all over his body but mostly concentrated on his face. The doctor told us it was this weird named thing that comes from being in contact with questionable water. Where would that happen around here? Well my wonderful curious son spends half the day pretending to be a dog outside with Thunder and Mario. I get after him a lot for being in the kennel and he can't seem to stay away from Thunders water bucket. One day I found his toy dog completely in it and other days he just puts Thunder's food in and takes it out. Either way it's disgusting, the final straw was when he came in last week and said "Don't worry mom, I was thirsty so I just drank out of Thunder's water". Ugh! These pictures are three days after it started and after two days of antibiotics to kill the bacteria he got but it looked awful. Picture a sixteen year old boy with horrible acne :)

It does look awful! His ears look swollen. Thanks for the pics I have been waiting to see what it really do. I enjoyed watching him be a dog all afternoon while I was there, didn't realize at the time he was getting himself a weird named hive! :)

Wow. That does look pretty bad. I am glad you figured out where he got it. its scary enough when the kids get these strange illnesses. Glad he is ok!

He does look so much like Coby in these pictures!

That's no fun. Why do kids eat grose things? My kids always eat dirt. I'm glad he is getting rid of it. He is such a cutie!

Poor Denver. I'll consider myself warned now for when we get a dog someday. That is just exactly something I can picture Annabelle doing!

Oh how sad. I never realized how disgusting kids were until I had my own. I can only imagine what my mom thought of my siblings and I growing up because we did some pretty gross stuff as well. How did we ever survive all the stuff that we did?!: :) I hope that Denver's rash is going away and maybe now that he got the rash he won't drink out of the dog's water bowl anymore. :)

that seriously sucks! Kids do the darndest things! Drinking the dog water! He was just thirsty!

Another reason not to have a dog. I will be sure to tell Aaron it is for the saftey of our kids... Denver is such a funny kid.

Yikes! Aren't boys funny! I caught Corbin trying to take a drink from a puddle once.
Hope he is ok.
