Spots Update

Everett’s spots are really mild. They look like this most of the time:  photo 386eresized_zps778aeb5e.jpg

And by most of the time I mean every two to four days a few pop up. They go away quickly and are usually only on one or two limbs. None on his chest or head or face anymore. Well, maybe one or two very rarely.

To the Dermatologist about those Spots!

Everett’s spots don’t get better. The spots on their own don’t seem to bother him in the slightest and don’t worry me (or his doctors so far) except that Everett’s syndactyly surgery is fast approaching and after calling and talking to Everett’s surgeon’s assistant I’m told that if the rash isn’t gone or there isn’t a solid diagnosis to exactly what it is, they won’t operate.

I don’t mind this… I don’t want my son operated on if his health is at all compromised.
We head off to the dermatologist. I have little hope for any additional information but know we must go anyway.  photo 054efinalresized_zpsa2ea5c02.jpg

Everett gets hungry in the waiting room.  photo 059eresized_zps491cc93d.jpg photo 060eresized_zps12304edd.jpg photo 061eresized_zpse5b00463.jpg

We’re not too unhappy waiting 😉  photo 064eresized_zpsb1200f63.jpg photo 067eresized_zpsc63084bc.jpg photo 070eresized_zps7370f034.jpg

We’re finally called back!  photo 074eresized_zps92c3166f.jpg photo 075eresized_zps47c0b05a.jpg

So the dermatologist doesn’t give us a ton of information. She says she doesn’t think his spots are from the amoxicillin and she does think they’re from that virus he caught and that certain types of rashes from viruses can last up to 6 weeks. So she asks to see Everett back in 4 weeks and says to cancel his surgery until the spots go away.
So we cancel Everett’s surgery (later that day) and reschedule it for a month later, on July 14th, and then it’s back to wait and see.  photo 081eresized_zps4da1897a.jpg

Oh yeah and we get Costco food before heading home 🙂  photo 084eresized_zpsfd361a06.jpg

We go to Everett’s pediatrician today. Allan had scheduled the appointment for me becuase my phone didn’t work that day. He schedules with a different doctor than we usually go to. Michael Milobsky.
I like this new doctor a lot. He says he thinks the rash of spots is a different rash than the one Everett got the week we had the flu and thinks it is a reaction to the amoxicillin Everett had for his ear infection.
I’m not sure. Rashes are confusing things. But what can you do?
The doctor gives me a referral to a dermaologist and says to see her if his spots don’t get better in a week to 10 days.
I forget to get a picture of Everett on the exam table but do take these:  photo blog03_zps42f6d815.jpg photo blog04_zps47c5b3ec.jpg photo 066eresized_zpsdd91e132.jpg

Spots Update, and Fever

Everett comes down with the same fever Ember had the day before. And he explodes with spots! They’ve been fairly isolated to his thighs for the last couple of weeks but now they spread to his face, too! I worry and schedule a doctor appointment. And I also take a bunch of pictures for his scrapbook!  photo 071eresized_zps67c86a69.jpg photo 118eresized_zps98f5a399.jpg photo 121eresized_zps0a107fbe.jpg photo 124eresized_zps264655e9.jpg photo 077eresized_zpsfaa1c213.jpg photo 094eresized_zps6b692b2d.jpg photo 097eresized_zps8dcab952.jpg photo 113eresized_zps119f0d3c.jpg photo 128eresized_zps1a0e3ae3.jpg photo 139eresized_zps90fdd3e3.jpg

The kids can’t leave him alone, as soon as I let them they run to join him after his little rash photoshoot 🙂  photo 157bwresized_zps86a540dc.jpg photo 165eresized_zps9659ea24.jpg photo 168eresized_zps5fb9c48a.jpg photo 173eresized_zps183c74c9.jpg photo 178eresized_zpscb13eb30.jpg
