I really don't have the time to blog this morning....so much to do...so little time! I've already fixed breakfast for my kids and hubby, weeded and watered my flower beds and garden, and hung 3 loads of clothes on the line....I think I deserve a few minutes of sitting down. I mean...come on...it's only 9 o'clock!
I needed to update everyone on how my daughters are doing. Thank you so very much for all the emails and messages on fb asking about them. It's so wonderful to know that so many are praying.
Boils are messy business. Sunday night in church, there was a big one by Alexis's ear that burst. I will spare you the yucky details. She was in a lot of pain, but about an hour after it burst she said it felt so much better. The pressure was relieved. As of today, Moriah has a new one on her calf (her 5th one). And Alexis still has a very painful one, about the size of a silver dollar on her thigh. Alexis has only had two.
Thank you to everyone who has sent me home remedies and precautions I should take. I really appreciate that.
Here's what we are doing. The dressings are changed morning and night, unless they get wet or seep out. I am applying a gooey black medicine called ICHTHAMMOL and a cream that we bought from the doctor. I sterilize the area with alcohol before dressing. They each are taking an antibiotic we bought from the doctor. We are also giving them each zinc once a day. I have also gave them tylenol, a couple of times, if they have much pain.
I only give them showers not baths, and I am bleaching the towels and washcloths after each use. Also bleaching the tub. Please continue to pray,
