The Rash-Part 1

I love being a Momma to my nugget but no one told me that sometimes it is shitty to be a parent..... Yes I said shitty because that's the truth

Since December 9th I have been to the doctor 6 times and we have his well check up on Monday so that is 7 times in one month!!!!

He got the flu so I took him in to make sure he was not dehydrated. Then we had his ENT appointment. Then he had pink gunky eyes so back to the doctor we went on Friday (and those 3 were all within a week). They put him on amoxicillin and said that he had an ear infection and that would take care of his pink eye too.

By the next Thursday his eyes were glassy and his nose was so stuffed he could no breath out of it.

James who is my favorite at the office said that Grayson may have an immunity to amoxicillin so we tried a different antibiotic.

Here is where the rash comes in.

He got a dose on Thursday and Friday along with eye drops for the pink eye.

Saturday morning I woke up to a different baby. He was super needy and just clingy all day. He slept until 8:30 which my kid never does. Around 11 I was changing his diaper and I noticed it. I red dot rash all over his feet. so I freaked and thought oh no hand, food and mouth. I checked his hands and they were clear so then I looked at his back and stomach and it was covered in red bumps too. I called the on-call doctor and they said to stop the antibiotic immediately and to give him baby benadryl. I got him down for a nap around 11:30 and he slept until 3!!! 3 1/2 hours never happens at my house. He woke up a little bit better but the rash was still there. We had some running around to do so we took him with us because he seemed fine, we were under a storm warning so we wanted to go and get it done and over with just in case something happened. 

Let me say that if you tell a parent BABY benadryl they will go to 3 stores looking for BABY benadryl. After the third store and nothing I asked a pharmacist and they informed me there is no such thing and that I would have to give him children's. Fun fact they had children's at all 3 stores I was at.

We got nugget love home and gave him a dose of benadryl and prayed that he would sleep through the night, because the needy monster was back in full force.

He did but we didn't more on that in How we survived an ice storm.
