I dont even know what to say..."The Rash"



Last Thursday Lilly was complaining that her arm hurt. So I took a look and there was a little ouchie.It looks like her armpit was rubbing against her shirt and irritating it, so I did the perfect cure all,I put a band aid on! That cures everything. Later that night I took the band aid off to give Lill a bath and there were a few more spots under her arm. I thought this is odd, but we'll wait and see if they go away or worsen. Friday, the original rash was bigger and redder and looked like some sort of flesh wound and more red spots.I got on Web MD to look up some rashes or skin conditions and there are MILLIONS of skin conditions.(maybe not millions, but close enough. )The good thing is Lilly didn't complain and they didn't hurt her, but they were spreading so fast. I called the doctor and got her in and she has some sort of bacterial rash. He gave her two different creams that needs to be applied 3 times a day and an antibiotic that she has to take for 5 days. It seriously hurt my heart to see these spots all over my Lilly!I was amazed how quick they spread from one little rash to the whole left side of her body in just a few short days. it looked like some flesh eating disease.I'm so grateful for well educated, trained doctor's and modern medications.  What would happen if we didn't have this technology now!?? I don't think I would have made a very good pioneer!  Needless to say, after a few days of medicine Lilly's rash is doing a lot better. Thank goodness!

Oooh, that looks itchy. Poor thing. I hope she is back to normal soon. I'm with you, thank heavens for modern medicine and great doctors. I would have sat down and just died if I was a pioneer. There is a reason why I was saved for this time.
