The Best Present!

Will has been having a lot of petechiae- small broken blood vessels under the skin, and these are always a worry in children. Dr Rahman wanted us to get some blood tests to rule out some nasty things and everything came back fine! She thinks he must have had a virus recently because his Leukocytes and Lymphocytes were still slightly elevated. That made sense because a couple of weeks ago he was really crabby and had a temp, but we chalked it up to teething. Anyway, Hurray for a healthy baby! For now we just have to make sure no more form and that they don't get bigger. And especially after his blood draw today I hope they don't. I don't ever want to do that again!

Every time I get sick I get those around my eyes, and anywhere my eczema is flaring up too. I think they show more because we are such a pale pasty white group o' people. I am glad my lil' Pudd is healthy, even if he has inherited lots of our family allergies, sensitivities etc. The Santa Pic is so cute! I love that outfit. Did you notice it also matches the quilt on your sofa? Debbie likes your tree, she thinks mine has too many ornaments. I can still see tree under them, so it can't have too many! Love, Jul
