Today I ended up having to call in to work and take my daughter to the doctor. She was broke out in a bad rash. The dr. thought it might be strep throat since her throat was red, but she hasn't been complaining of a sore throat. Did a strep culture, and all is fine that way. Don't know what's causing it. We are all thinking an allergy to something, but can't figure out what it might be. I have spent all day (or at least it feels like all day) going over everything she has eaten (nothing new or different), types of soap, laundry detergent, etc. And we can not come up with anything. I don't switch brands of that kind of stuff because I know she has some sensitivity to things. This has got us all stumped. Got her on benadryl now, which is helping the itching, and the rash is looking better already.
The one good thing out of this is I weighed myself on the doctor scales again. Last time, I weighed 211, and today I weigh 208. Surprised me as I figured I would be the same since I really haven't done much on changing my eating, or drinking more water. At least something good came out of all this.
We are supposed to be in for one heck of a snow storm, with 12 inches of snow to hit this area in the next couple days. It was supposed to start at about 1 this afternoon, but so far nothing. In a way, I hope it avoids us, and in another way I hope to get so much snow I can't go to work. lol.
Take care and talk to you all later,
