P&PT for Selin

We had to rush Selin to the ER early this morning because she was having a terrible reaction to amoxicilin. Her face was swollen and she was covered head to toe with hives.

They gave her a steroid and an iV and she's been admitted for observation. We're waiting to see the dr and then we should know more. Hopefully she'll go home today.

Have you ever tried expressing BM by hand? I did that today to put in my ears (I have an infection) and it was actually sort of easy, I had like 1/2 oz in like a minute. It took a few tries to figure it out but it worked great!

Adrienne - I haven't tried that, but glad to hear you didn't have too diifficult of a time with it!

Yesterday, I only had to give Selin the Benadryl in the morning and she's remained rash-free ever since so I'm hoping the drug is out of her system now.

For some reason though, she decided to wake up at 1:30am this morning to play and screamed every time we put her back to bed. She finally conked out in our bed around 4:30am and then I moved her back to her crib. Don't know what that was all about! :-/
