Kade's foot "surgery"

Poor Kade had a Planters Wart on the bottom of his foot. At first, we thought he must have stepped on something and it became infected. As time went on, it seemed to be pretty clear it was a wart.

This morning he had his appointment to have it removed. He was SOOO nervous! He thought for sure he was going to need crutches; although, I think he secretly wanted them to get sympathy from girls at school! He asked me multiple times, what we were going to do if he was still on crutches on Monday! ha! He didnt even get them for today.

After taking the younger two to school, we got some Sonic drinks and headed to the Dr's, at 7:45am! I was pretty impressed that by 8am, all 6 of us were taken care of and dressed for the day. Can I get an amen?!

He received a numbing shot, but that brought him to tears. Who wants a shot right in the middle of something, that is already causing them pain?! Thankfully, that lasted just a few seconds and he didnt feel anything after that.

In the middle of rubbing his back and consoling him, and trying to keep Kase entertained, I snapped some pictures. Dont look if you're easily grossed out!

Cleaning and finishing up

Not even home yet, and we need to change the bandage!

I just wiped up the wound, and was about to put on a new bandaid.

The dr. instructed him not to play baseball for 4 days! Which means he's missing a game tonight, and a tournament tomorrow. I know he's bummed about that, but since this is on the bottom of his foot where he walks, it has to be given the time to heal! I gave him some tylenol, propped up his foot, and he's playing the playstation :)
In fact, he told me I can watch "house shows" on the TV upstairs all day, so he can play the playstation downstairs. ha!
Maybe today he'll see that I dont watch TV all day, dispite what he thinks a stay at home mom does! He's seen me do 2 loads of laundry, do the dishes, and take care of him and his baby brother! Amen?!
Here's to hoping he's not sore for long.


  1. I think I have a very tiny something like that in the middle of my hand. It hurts sometimes..but im a big baby and wont go to the dr. after seeing all that I really wont go to the dr. I need my hands too much!

    Hopefully he feels better soon! You are such a good mom!

  2. Poor Kade, what an awful place of your foot too! I have had some on my toes in High School and by the time they were dealt with my feet were so swollen I had to wear flip flops for a while, how painful! Hope they don't come back!

  5. Poor guy! We feel his pain in this house! My 5 year old has one on his foot too! Right now we are doing duct tape over it (hoping to suffocate the thing)and then wart remover. If that doesn't work I am afraid this is our next step. Eeeee pray it works. I'd hate for my Logan to have to get a shot in his foot at just 5 years old.

  6. Playstation....always fixes everything lol
