Hospital Nightmare

Today was a bit of a nightmare, which included a hospital visit and two little girls that were less than well behaved...
We went to church around noon and they did horrible.. I think people were looking at us like we were some crazy parents with even crazier kids.. ahh! it was nuts!
Before we even went to church, I noticed Gaby's right eye was a little swollen and pinkish... it got progressively worse during the day and it was even watery and started getting smaller and even more swollen..
We decided to take her in to the ER and it turns out she had a horrible infection from a mosquito bite..Her skin was very irritated and the swollen area had pus in it...
The doctor told us that if we had waited longer, the infection could have gone to her eye and even her brain.. needless to say I was freaking out...
We were told she is highly allergic to mosquito bites and bugs.. nothing surprises me considering Gaby has super sensitive skin...
She was put on antibiotics and allergy meds... I hope she starts to feel better soon!
Here's my little one in the ER..

...and this is a picture of her swollen eye.. although the picture doesn't really show how bad it was...
Hopefully she will feel better for her birthday this coming Saturday! Please pray for her!
