Anticipation can be killer when you are waiting on something like the test results from your toddler’s blood work. The our vivid imaginations make the hypothetical situations that run through your head are usually far worse that what actually ends up happening. I am full of what-ifs because I like to mentally prepare myself for the worst possible situation.
If you know me at all, you know I do not pick up my phone, let alone pick up for a number I don’t know. Today was different, today I carried my phone around like it was my lifeline. Today the doctor was supposed to be calling with the results that could help diagnose the cause of this toddler eczema.
At about 12:40 PM my obnoxiously heavy metal-ish ring tone went off and it was the doctor! The doctor told me that Michael’s allergy blood work came back and it was negative for the things they tested, followed by, “that’s a good thing!”
My next thought process is going to give me the Worst Mom award so be prepared…
I sort of wanted SOMETHING, anything to come back positive so I wasn’t back to square one with this eczema. An allergy would take a while to adjust to, but I would be able to start fixing it NOW! If he would have tested positive for one thing I would be one step closer to taking my poor baby’s pain away.
What’s the toddler eczema game plan?
The doctor said we just have to make sure we take care of his skin. I guess that means I will have to walk through every possible toddler eczema treatment I can find. I am starting with these three Aveeno products: Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash, Aveeno Baby Soothing Baby Bath Treatment and Aveeno Baby Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream because I have heard good things about them. I will be making my way through every comment on the first eczema post and trying any suggestions that you guys have left for me, I appreciate them all!
Keep your fingers crossed for us!
