Just to keep everyone up to date, HG has been suffering from some kind of mystery rash for a couple of weeks now. We finally got him to the allergist the other day and they gave him something that's keeping the symptoms at bay. The Dr. believes the rash was a reaction to some antibiotics HG was taking for an ear infection.
The above picture, as bad as it looks, doesn't do the thing the least bit of justice. For a while Henry's whole body was covered in raised welts. I can't tell you how hard it is as a parent to observe something like that and not be able to do anything to make your child feel better.
Of course HG's been a trooper as usual, even when it got so itchy that he was scratching himself like an addict kicking dope. Hopefully the worst is over. The Dr. told us that if it's what he thinks it is, it should go away within a couple of weeks or so. Keep your fingers crossed.
