You know what I've been researching for the past hour?
Tick bites. Ugh. Why? Because I found one embedded in the head of my one year-old child!
So what did I learn? That there are more than 800 different types of ticks. That the most common in the US carry at least one more diseases such as Lyme Disease or Rocky-Mountain Spotted fever. Uhhh yeah.
Don't worry though I'm not one of those moms who has a coronary over everything. Yes a tick bit is serious but like I said I researched and I called the nurse at the Dr.'s office. We ruled out that it is not fact a deer tick (Lyme disease carrier) that sucked the blood of my baby but probably more of a harmless (yet still gross) tick.
I'm glad I found the nasty thing before I put her to bed last night. Grandma saved the day by getting a pair of tweezers and pulling it out; head attached. It's tiny, no bigger than the letters on my computer keyboard.
