The most AMAZING Rash Ever and Eva's Last Day of School


To the front, to the front...

To the back, to the back...

To the side, to the side...

Now dip baby dip, just dip baby dip...Let me see you tootsie roll...tootsie rooooll!

Everybody now, Tootsie Roll...Tootsie Roll! Oh, hey, sorry, I just got a little carried away there with The Tootsie Roll. You know how that goes. You will now have this song stuck in your head all day. You're welcome. :) Ummm, can you say allergic reaction to Amoxicillin?? I don't think these pictures do justice to how bad and amazing this rash was but here it is in all it's glory. Poor Ella looked terrible! Ella had an ear infection last week and had been on Amoxicillin for 8 days and then all of sudden this beautiful rash showed up this past Tuesday. YIKES! I'm here to tell you that every inch of her body was covered. Every.inch. Poor baby. I took her to the doctor on Tuesday to get the verdict on the rash and it was not 100% that it was the antibiotic that caused it but I'm saying it sure looks that way. Honestly, I've never seen anything quite like it. Thankfully, Ella did not seem bothered by it and it wasn't itching or anything and it has now gone away which is a relief. I feel like all we've been doing lately is going back and forth to the doctor and to the pharmacy drive-thru at Walgreens. Throw me a bone here will ya?

Hopefully now we are over this icky sickness hump and we can get back on track with good feeds. Ella has lost some weight so we're trying to get back in the game here and on to our quest for no more feeding tube! I do have to say though that the feeding tube is helpful and is definitely a comfort for me when sickness strikes and Ella doesn't eat as well because I can always add in a feeding, etc. if need be. Can you tell that I have a love/hate relationship with her feeding tube?? Keep praying!

In other news, sweet little Eva had her last day of school at Young Children's World this week. What a wonderful year she has had! She had the most precious, hard working teachers who were so loving, patient and compassionate not only to Eva but to our whole family. We were so blessed to have Miss Patty and Miss Christi this year. Eva absolutely adored them and just talked about them constantly, she will definitely miss them.

Despite the look on Eva's face she really does looooove her teachers!


Is she not THE cutest thing you've ever seen??? Just humor me and say yes. :)

Have a great weekend everyone!

thanks for freaking me out...grace is on day 9 of her amoxicillin for an ear infection....off to check for red splotches! :) (and, yes, Eva is the cutest thing ever and I can't tell you how stoked I am to have her in class next year...I hope!)

YES, I will also confirm that it is certainly a penicillin rash. I got it head to toe JUST LIKE THAT about 10 years ago from Nafcillin. I hope they told you to avoid ALL penicillins from now on with her!! Forever. Subsequent reactions can be worse.... trust me, my idiot-self can attest to this fact. Ugh. POOR BABY! Glad she was feeling ok during all that!!

And yes, your sweet Eva is DARN PRECIOUS! As a mother of two little lovies, I can't say she's the cutest EVER.... but you rightfully CAN! :) :) :)

Love you! PRAYING.

Wow, Eva smiling and in a picture!!! So sorry to hear about the rash poor Ella had. Glad that it's all gone and she's back on track. We loved Mrs. Patty and Mrs. Christi too. They will be missed this summer. I also loved that Abby and Eva were together this whole year. Love ya and need to get together soon before I'm over run with kids.
