Well, it is just as we assumed. Ransom has eczema. I decided that since I had to take Mercy in for her checkup, I might as well schedule an appointment for Ransom too, just in case. My secret fear was that his rash was a form of premature skin cancer. Thankfully, no, just eczema. (I can blame his father for that one.)
Anyway, on to Mercy. She is 12 lbs 9 oz. She is in the 60 percentile. She is exactly half of Ransom's weight. She got 3 shots and an oral vaccination for Rotovirus. Normally, shots make my kiddos tired. It is actually something I enjoy (no, not seeing them in pain, but I like the break I get when they are sleeping.) Well, Mercy apparently did not get the memo. She did not sleep; she screamed all the way home. She screamed so much at home that I gave her another bath. Mercy loves baths. Unfortunately, they have to end some time and as soon as she was wrapped in the towel she howled again. I finally gave her some pain reliever. Now, even though she is sleeping, she wakes up periodically and cries. Poor thing. Pray that Mommy and Mercy will get some sleep.
