Not So Merry

Right before we left to Utah Avie was put on Amoxicillin for double ear infections. I was hesitant to use it, because Rayce had a horrible allergic reaction to it called Erythema Multiforme. It wasn't your typical allergic rash. It started out looking like hives but progressed to swelling and the "rash" turning into bluish, yellowish, redish welt looking marks all over his poor little body. This is what it looked like:

Well sure enough Avie had the exact same reaction to the medication.

Her brow area was so swollen she looked like Cro Magnon baby. It's one thing to get sick when you are in the comfort of your own home, but it stinks to get sick when your traveling, or to have your kids have an allergic reaction while your traveling. Fortunately for her, her reaction was not nearly as severe as Raycey's. She was still pretty miserable! Next time I think I'll go with my mother instincts.

Oh nooo! How miserable! I'm so sorry you had to deal with this...and for a second time! No more amoxacillin for your family! Geez...

I'm so sorry! Stuff like that is never fun. We should get together soon!
