My Liller Bug


I meant to update on Lillian last week after we got her test results back, but I tend to forget things. :-) Just as a reminder, Lillian has had a bad rash on her bottom sine mid-August. She has been to the doctor many times because of this and we have tried many different treatments, some have helps clear it temporarily, but never more then just a few days. She also has a rash on her abdomen and her cheeks are starting to get pink. We took her to get her blood drawn last week to check her zinc levels and the results came back as low zinc. She now is given an oral zinc supplement nightly with dinner and we will do this for the next month. After the month is up we will take her to get her blood tested again and hope this works for her and clears everything up. She has been taking the zinc since Friday and so far it doesn't seem to be getting better. I am hoping this is one of those "gets worse before better" things or we will be making another call by the end of the week.
Other Lillian news, she has a front tooth is that just starting to break through the skin tonight, so hopefully by morning she will have her fifth tooth. One more note, she is walking so much more and loving it! She is walking much further and with much more confidence, however if she stumbles, she tends to just finish her path by crawling. By there birthday (just two short weeks away) I am sure they will both be all over the place with only walking.

Alright and now some pictures of both my beautiful girls.
