Kambree and the Ants!

Last night after Brad left for the church, Kambree came running in from outside screaming. Annie came in after her yelling "the ants got her." Kambree still had ants on her feet and legs so I got them off. She was brave and didn't cry, but you could see that they got her good. She wrapped herself in a blanket on the couch and I continued to clean. A little later I looked at her feet and we counted at least 18 ant bites on her feet and ankles. I decided to give her a bath to see if it would help stop the itching. When I started to help her take her clothes off I noticed big red blotches all over her face and body. Later her eyelids, ears, and feet got swollen. She looked horrible. I gave her Benedryl and after a good nights sleep the red blotches are gone. Her eyelids and ears look much better, but the top of her feet are still very red and swollen. I did take pictures of her last night, but I can't figure out how to get them off of my phone and onto the computer. Anyway, I hope Kambree will start to look where she is walking out in our jungle of a backyard!
