Rash Decisions - and Cute Pictures

Karsie seems to be doing a bit better, but she's still bothered by her rash. Doctor Suen called the other day to tell us that the culture grew bacteria, meaning there's stuff to kill. So Karsie has been on antibiotics for a few days. We're pretty sure when she leaks she is getting irritated from a higher acidic concentration because we took her off prilosec. So G.I. needs to decide if she needs to go on again. The rash itself is slightly bigger, but it is healing with the antibiotic cream we put on her. We hope it clears up soon so she feels better.

Developmentally, she's doing well. She's getting very quick at standing up. She can point to her ears when we ask her to, and tomorrow we're working on "nose." Eating is hit and miss. Some days she likes solids. Some days she likes puree. some days she likes nothing. Except chicken. She always likes chicken.


  1. She is so, so, so, so cute. She looks like a little angel!

  2. Karsie is beautiful! God has given you a special gift in her!

    Can you please give us a timeline for her? Is she approaching surgery soon?

  3. Sounds like Karsie is completely average with eating, all mine went through that, liking and not liking food within a couples days. Especially when learning something new like crawling, walking, running or getting teeth. AND they all liked chicken too! Cory

  4. She is getting so big and still is cute as EVER!!!!! I hope you all are doing well. Have you been wrapping her belly?

    Hugs - Tiffany

  5. Tiffany - we started to, but with her G-Tube site, the compression squeezes out the stomach juices and food, so it probably won't work for us. We may try again later since she's upright more (which is what Caitlynn's mom said made the biggest difference) but we may need to just go for expanders. We meant to send you pictures and forgot to. We'll try and get that to you to view.
