Poor DD has had some hard times as of late.
Last Friday I finally broke down and took her to the ER at Children's because her face was so broken out from eczema that it was bleeding and crusted over. I cannot even describe how horrible it was to see my daughter in such pain. They took a swab of the open parts and it was infected with staph. They sent us home with an antibacterial cream, a steroid cream & put her on the antibiotic Keflex.
The next day, around 4 PM I gave her the first dose of the oral antibiotics. By 6 PM, her back and belly were covered in hives. I took her back to the emergency room, they gave her Benedryl and sent us back home.
Today I took her to her pedi for a follow-up appointment and now she is on the creams and azithromycin. So far, so good. I am looking forward to my baby girl finally being able to smile without feeling any pain
In good news, we have started solids and are still breastfeeding! She love love loves sweet potatoes. They are her favorite. Now, when I nurse her, she reaches up and plays with my hair and it makes me melt.
I can't believe it has been almost 7 months since she entered this world. I don't even know what I did without her.
My little princess <3
