WOW!!! D came home last night. Before bed he came in our room and showed me his little penis and it was swollen! I had never seen anything like that before. Not that I’ve looked at many penises but, anyway. It shocked S as well. One night before he left for Spring Break vacation he started complaining about a slight stinging sensation when he peed. I gave him a cranberry tablet and had him to drink plenty of water because I figured he was starting to get a bladder infection and I didn’t want to accrue any unnecessary medical bills since we are trying to get our finances together. I know, maybe not the best idea. But he didn’t complain anymore and said that he wasn’t feeling any stinging anymore afterwards. I talked to my mom Saturday and she said he complained about it again one night while he was there and she had him to drink water because she was figuring it was the same thing. My mom is a nurse, so I guess I wasn’t completely off track in my thinking sense she thought the same. As I was looking at his penis, I noticed an area on his thigh that looked like he’d been bitten by something. He said it didn’t hurt and never bothered him really, but he did remember that area itching a little a few days before. I don’t know how that would cause his penis to swell. So, needless to say, we are about to make a trip to the doctor’s office. I will update once we find out what is going on with him.
