Can you see the ice and snow in his eyebrows and eyelashes? (Hmm, isn't there a song like that...) He said to me in his low voice, muffled by the mask, "Take a picture for your blog." Then in the wee hours of Sunday morning, we woke up to a VERY cold house - furnace stopped working. Aaron was able to talk to someone who explained how to "hot wire" it until we could get the part we needed. So we were warm by mid-morning Sunday.
As if that weren't enough drama, we took Daniel in to see a doctor Saturday morning. He had developed a rash on Friday (no fever, no itching) and when he woke up Saturday, his eyes and lips were completely swollen up.
This is actually how it looked as he got better -- his feet were like little footballs and his hands were all puffy -- just heartbreaking. The doctor gave us Claritin for the day, Benadryl for night, and ordered a few blood tests, checked for strep (negative).
It's just bizarre how his body reacts; it feels like we go through this rash thing more than normal. Is this how he will react to viruses for the rest of his life??
Just another day in the life!
