So we brought Malka in to the doctor’s today, to talk about her eczema, which seems to be getting worse.
He looked at her, and confimred the ezcema, but wants us to go see an allergist before we start her on solids, and before we go to a dermatologist. He was glad to hear that she’s not bothered by it. She only itches her eyes, but we think that’s because we don’t really want to put the aquaphor too near her eyes.
When he said allergist, my heart started racing. What if she’s allergic to the cats? He said even if she is, it’s (the dander and hair) all over the place, so getting rid of them wouldn’t solve the problem. Small relief. (but I’m still nervous about it)
She’s still (bless her heart) a totally happy baby, and she’s not really bothered by the eczema. (Baruch HaShem).
So we’re calling the allergists on Tuesday, and setting up appointments.
And we have a date to see her birth mom on June 5th. We’re looking forward to it, but I hope we have some answers before then.
And that my anxiety lessens before then, too.
