update

Thank you for your prayers for Ethan's rash. I wanted to post a quick update that the rash has not gotten any better. His eyes in fact have gotten worse. I've spoken with Ethan's doctor in Boston and we are trying a new strategy (new medicine) to see if we can figure out the root problem. She told me to give it three days to see if it works.... so far, there hasn't been a change. Ethan's in good spirits, though. I, on the other hand, just grow more concerned. His eyes especially, I just wish his upper/lower eyelids didn't look sooo red and irritated - well for that matter, I wish his whole face didn't look that way.... thank you again for your comments, helpful hints and mostly your prayers!

ARGGHHHH! I am sorry that it is not gone. Lydia has a small rash on her cheeks that comes and goes. It drives me batty. I can't imagine if it was around her eyes. Poor baby. Poor mama too. Have y'all tried plain old cortizone cream? I hear that it is used alot for GVHD and of course many other things.
Still praying in Alabama.
