one of these feet is not like the other

Adeline's sweet little feet.
Can you tell which one is bigger?

Poor girl couldn't sleep Thursday night because her foot was itching so bad.  Since it was dark, I assumed it was just a few mosquito bites and tried to soothe her with anti-itch cream.  When she woke up Friday morning, I was shocked to see such a swollen little foot.  It got bigger and darker throughout the morning so I took her to the doctor only to find out it was a bad reaction to a bug bite.  After some Benadryl and more anti-itch cream, she's doing much better and her foot is just about back to normal!

At least she still has cute toes! :)

I got stung by a bee last summer (for the first time ever!) and my foot swelled up and itched like crazy. I hope she feels better soonn!

Poor girl! At least it was her foot and not her eye! (bad flashbacks for me!) She just must be too sweet!

Poor little girl! I had not idea you could react so bad to a mosquito bite!

Poor baby girl! You know how I feel about those crazy mosquitoes! My girls used to get feverish welts the size of golf balls. Glad she is doing better.
