"It's going to get worse before it gets better."

That is exactly what is happening with Baby Boy's "rash" which apparently is an allergic reaction to the amoxicillin that was given to him for the ear infections.  It looks absolutely AWFUL and my heart breaks every time I look at him.  Especially because the hives have now started attacking his precious face and both of his eyes are almost swollen shut!

I'm on duty today since hubby covered yesterday.  As for my work, I went in super early yesterday morning to make up for leaving at 11:00am Monday AND I stayed late.  Of course, my boss didn't seem to care, or notice for that matter.  I will probably have to do the same the rest of the week.  As well as apologize profusely for having to take so much time off followed by thanking him for being soooo understanding. {gag} It would be easier to do if he truly was understanding and if he knew anything about how hard I am trying to make my life/work balance successful.  I have bent over backwards on so many occasions for that man and he still makes me feel guilty for being with my son.  But, I am lucky to have a job and I am grateful for the time he has given me. {blah, blah, blah}

Okay!  I feel much better.  Had to get that out of my system.  I am now going to focus on comforting my little guy and getting over this hump so that he can be back to his healthy self.  Then I will be saying Hail Mary's, rubbing my lucky rabbit's foot, crossing my fingers and toes, looking into witch-craft and any other remedies, secrets and down right miracles to have him stay healthy for his 1st birthday.  Wish us luck!
