Mikan has had a barrage of minor illnesses ever since school has started. Runny noses. Diarrhea. Fever and vomiting. Fungal rash around the g-tube. Athlete's foot?
Mikan's toes have blisters all over them. They are very painful. We have been trying to keep his braces and shoes off as often as possible and use a prescription antifungal cream. Of course this means he can't walk, which is frustrating for him. His PT said this is common for kids who wear AFOs because they sweat so much.
Despite all of his "ouchies" as he calls them, he is still good-tempered. He even asks that I sing a song about his "ouchies" before he goes to bed at night. I'm not really sure what he expects me to sing about, perhaps he just wants to remind me that he has them. He also adds to his nighttime prayers now "no more ouchies."
