The Saga CONTINUES


First off, I'm up and running again! YAY! Now if I could just talk a certain husband into letting be buy a certain Mac that I have all picked out and all pimped out with memory. Anywho, on to Sophia. This morning I get yet another call from day care. On this morning's menu is a rash covering Little Bit's entire body. Well I'm none to worried about the rash. Every single time the kid has taken an antibiotic she gets these little red dots. They aren't contagious (i know this because I have taken her to the doctor 3 times now for these dots.) So in goes another call to the doctor and of course he's super busy. Finally around 1:30 I finally talk to the doctor and he says "bring her on in so I can tell you again that she's not contagious and she can go back to day care."


So everything is right with the world, right? WRONG! I pick up Little Bit and notice that her hands are blue. No scratch that, blackish and cold. Her feet are normal but 3 fingers on her left hand were this blackish color and two fingers are this strange pinkish color. So off I go to the doctor and tell the chick at the window that "I'm here for the non-contagious rash but in the meantime Sophia appears to have gangrene in her fingers so could we make it snappy." Even the chick at the window was like "OMG!" So he takes us back immediately but strangely the man isn't panicking like me. I even tell him that I'm "about to flip out!" But instead he's more "intrigued." We strip her down and see that she also has two purple arms!! In comes the medical students to observe my petri dish of a child. And off they go to hit the books (actually they probably jumped on webmd to find out what is wrong with Little Bit, who by the way is happy as a calm.) The Doctor is still intrigued and is looking at her like "wow, this is cool!" Finally, after a few phone calls with colleagues the diagnosis is yet another reaction to medicine! Of course I'm a bad mommy and forget the exact term that the doctor used. But by the time we left the office her hands were back to their normal color and they should remain that way since she's now on a different medicine.


Steven and I LOVE Sophie's doctor and I really believe that's she's getting the best care ever. It's not his fault thatSophie reacted the way she did. He's already called the house to check on her this evening and gave me his home number in case we see any more blue fingers. The man even said that if it would make me feel better, he would meet me tomorrow to check her out on his off day! Now what doc does that! (Kelly thank-you sooooo much for sending me to him.) So in the meantime Little Bit is constantly being inspected. Fingers crossed that this new medicine works! This is a really bad picture but when you are sick you get Popsicles that's all there is to it!

Hang in there. You are doing everything just right. Sometimes kids just can't handle the meds! Let me know if you need anything-

That must have been the most frightening thing ever! I'm so happy to hear that everything if OK. I had no idea those things could be symptoms of a reaction to medicine!
