I may have to eat my words

Those blisters might NOT be caused by her pull-ups.  :blush:

One more popped up on her leg, nowhere near where her pull-ups would be, and it was when she’d been in underwear for two straight days.  My MIL had looked up some pictures of a certain skin infection when she had the Kiddo overnight on Saturday, and showed the pictures to me when we went over to hang out and pick up the Kiddo yesterday.


Yeah. Those pictures showed what looked an awful lot like what I saw on her tummy on Friday.  *sigh*

So today I’m staying home with her to take her to the doctor to have what’s left checked out – plus another patch of OTHER skin ickies on her other leg (unrelated to the new stuff – looks more like zits or bug bites), and the cough that cropped up over the weekend.

This is what we get for her switching rooms at school.  She was doing well with not bringing home ickies in the other room, then she gets moved and *bam*!  First the tummy ickies, now some skin ickies & a cough.

She feels better
Posted on August 31st, 2008 @ 8:18 am

I put her to bed with a fever, and this morning she doesn’t feel feverish at all.  The first thing she asked for was milk – but she is getting pedialyte instead – and to play Elmo on the computer.  We have this Sesame Street game for 1-3.5 year olds, and that is what she is currently playing.

I’m glad she’s feeling better, but we’re still going to stay home from her uncle’s barbeque, and swimming.  She doesn’t even know there were plans to do that since we were only invited yesterday and we haven’t spoken openly about it around her, which is for the best, since she loves swimming and loves going to her cousins’ house.  Oh well, she won’t even know what she is missing.

Dang I’m tired though. We stayed up watching “The Invasion” and just as we went to bed, she started stirring in her sleep, coughing and crying, so I had to stay up a little longer to make sure she wasn’t going to be sick or something.  She was just restless.  But then I had trouble falling asleep after that, every little cough that came from her room, made my eyes shoot open with the thoughts of, “please don’t start puking kid!” dashing through my mind.  And because my mind was on high alert, any cough from my husband did the same thing, even though he isn’t sick. 🙄 Then I had some really weird dreams, too.

And we’re out of soda. Guess I’ll go make some flavored water for now.
