We're going in today at 4pm.

This is what his leg looks like now, almost exactly 72 hours after the shot was given.



The picture doesn't show how red it is - in real life, it's bright red and very angry looking.

Looks like cellulitis to me. I had it on my arm from a bee sting and it was itchy, hot, and quick to spread. Hope they can figure it out for him. Poor thing.
