What is that thing on her face?

So, Hailey. Poor little Hailey. I have felt so bad for her from just about birth. She has so many issues (minor) - and yet she is the worlds most amazing patient! We had to have blood drawn when she was 2 and she just sat quietly and watched. It was amazing. She doesn't gag when the nurse shoves cotton swabs down her throat for strep cultures and she pretty much takes a licken and keeps on ticken if you know what I mean.

As we all know, we are anxiously awaiting our follow up with the Pediatrician and our May 12 appt with the ENT of choice - in the meantime the Dr. asked us to give her Flonaise until we see the ENT.

Ok, that presents a couple of problems.

1. she is three

2. she is three

3. she is three -
I know that is just one problem in triplicate. Can you get nasal spray succesfuly in your 3 year old? Hold one nostril, squeeze trigger while sniffing deep but not too deep...Hmmmm - you do the math.
We did get it done, kind of - but later in the day this showed up
and while I tried and tried to get a good picture - I could not - so here it is...a blurry picture of a wicked weird rashy spot on the cheek of my sweet adorable Hailey and there is nothing I can do about it.


Though we will be back at the Dr again today - I am starting to sound a bit like a psycho mom with the Dr visits eh? Oh well. Take me as I am.

POOOR baby! I would have never guessed nose spray for a three year old! I would have gone for claritin liquid! Can't wait to hear about this doctor visit!

Becky said...

OH no! Poor little baby. She certainly is having a tough time of it.

Bonnie said...

love that "she is three..she is three" so true but she is going to be one tough little cookie, actually I think she already is.
Do you think the bump is an allergic reaction?

Lindsay said...

awww poor Hailey! That looks like an allergic reaction to me! I sure hope they have a different suggestion for the poor girlie!

Kim H. said...

Yep, reaction for sure! Poor little dee-dee! Why is it never just simple as 1-2-3?????

Sweet girl. I feel for her. I feel for you! We do nose spray too. It isn't easy with a 6 year old so hats off to you with Hailey. Good luck at the doctor's today.

The poor thing. I am feeling for her today. I had med reactions, they are the worst!

Hope you find something out soon!!

Jen said...

Poor thing - she has had a rough time lately. Hope you get some answers from the doctor - and quickly!

Poor baby! I got like twenty of those plus hives on my face when my mom's friend made me try her skincare line once...except I was in the fourth grade, at school, at recess. Not cute!

Debbie said...

Sometimes I feel like I am taking a kid in every day to the doctor - maybe that is because there are weeks when I am.
I hope Hailey is OK soon.

I'm at the doctor all the time with my little one...better safe than sorry! The nurses know me by name...Oh...Mrs. Bailey...I'll have the doctor call you...

Jenni Jiggety said...

Poor Hailey! I hope the rashy spot goes away!

Poor baby. :(

I hope things went well at the doctors. You went today right? Don't feel like a hypochondriac mom. You need to be your child's biggest advocate. It's okay to question things and fight for her!

XOXO

Oh Terra -

Poor liitle girl and poor mommy too. Could you all just catch a break!

I hear you on the nasal spray. Drew has severe allergies (we will be heading to an allergist soon) and when we were at the pediatrician last week, he suggested we use a nasal spray. Umm, yah right! We did get it accomplished once in the last week, but no such luck since.

oh no, what did the doctor say? and you are not a psycho mama, you are a great mama!!! poor little princess...
