Dodging the Bullet

Well, thanks to so many prayers, KT managed to "dodge the bullet."  Because she wouldn't let the Drs. touch the cyst on the side of her face last night that had developed due to infection, they sent us home for the night with a stronger antibiotic - clentimycine (sp?), and told us to come in the morning so they could lance it.  At 4:30 a.m., KT awoke me, very scared, and told me the cyst was getting bigger and that we'd better go back in.  I looked at it, and sure enough, it was twice the size it had been!  I'm kind of a wuss when it comes to medical issues, so I awoke Pam to show and tell her.  When she tried to move KT's hair out of the way, one of the strands that had stuck on the sore caused the entire thing to break open, and it just started oozing - completely draining!  It was great, because it released all the pressure.  So we decided to just wait to have it be seen later in the morning. 
This morning, it looks VERY good!  The Dr. saw it and said to continue on the harder antibiotic and do warm compresses 4 times a day, and that it will be just fine.  So...to KT's delight, no anesthesia, no operating room, no knives, no NUTHIN'!!!  She is one happy camper this morning.

It was a very stressful 15 hours, though, for all of us.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS - we KNOW they made a difference and that the Lord is watching over our little KT.
