Agh, Autumn has had a great new year, I just love seeing her grow and enjoy life like a 6 year old should! She had such a wonderful year in kindergarten meeting all new friends and having a ball! Unfortunately, she had a terrible reaction to amoxicillin last week which created a rash all over her skin that was unlike any I had ever seen!! I had no idea that it could be that bad! She was itchy and swollen and just a mess, poor little girl. I cried, it was miserable for her, she just didn't deserve another set back in life! It took about 5 days to fully recover and she is back into being herself again, thank god!

  1. As horrible as the reaction & rash must have been, all I could think about when I read this was, "She's a normal 6 year old having "normal" 6 year old problems! What a gift that is!"
    I'm so sorry that you both had to go through that, and so glad that all you have to worry about these days is a rash.
    Please know that I'm not dismissing how horrible this was for her, and how bad and how tremendously scary a reaction like this can be. I know that there are few things more irritating to kids than a rash, and few things that are harder to deal with when you're the mom of a normal 6 year old than a small person who can't stop squirming and can't help but scratch.
    Glad she's back to her sweet self!
