Lexi bug update

Sorry I haven't had a chance to post about Lexi again. We went to the pedi on Monday afternoon for a follow-up appointment. She said Lexi is doing really well. However, she doesn't feel that it was allergy related....she thinks it was related to whatever it was she had the prior week where she just didn't feel good. Good to know, now I just hope it doesn't happen every time she gets sick!

Found out that the steriods she was given make her CRAZY! She has been a wild woman! Apparently, that's a normal reaction. And the Benedryl helps to counteract it some, but not completely. The pedi said we can stop the Benedryl, but if I needed to, to get her to sleep, go ahead and give her some. ha!

Also found out that maybe her lack of appetite has nothing to do with not feeling good....apparently because she's got molars still coming in, sometimes kids don't want to eat. Huh. Who'da thunk? I hope she gets her appetite back. As of now, she hasn't gained any weight from her 12 month checkup and that was almost a month and a half ago.

So, she's doing good. We just have to finish up the steriods tomorrow and then hopefully I'll have my sane girl back!!
