Update on Alyse!

We had a busy day today...

I noticed Alyse has a blister about a week ago...on her upper thigh close to where her diaper would hit. At first I thought it was just an irritation from the diaper, but over the weekend, it opened up and looked yucky. We were on vacation and MIL suggested it might be impetigo (which my sil had when she was little). So when we got home from vaca I google'd...OY! The pictures were terrifying...go ahead and look, but don't say I didn't warn you! I called the dr first thing this morning and brought her in and sure enough, thats what she has...SO, right now its being treated with an ointment, but if it gets worse, I have a script for oral antibiotics!

THEN...........

After her nap, she had her first haircut! I just couldn't stand the hair being in her face...I always had to put it in a rubber band. Hair bows only last minutes now and the bands were hurting her hair. So, I decided it was time. It was so hard Sad But she looks adorable...just gonna take me some time to get used to it!

From Summer 2011

Ewwww Sad The dr said Alyse most likely didn't catch it anywhere...we all carry staph in our bodies. She said she probably had a bite or scratch or something that developed into this.

She looks adorable!!

I had impetigo when I was a teenager - all up and down my leg and I still have scars from it. Good for you for catching it so quickly!!! I hope it clears up quickly for her!
