Rachel has been suffering from a nasty rash. It started off slow around her shoulders and it has progressed down her body, leaving a whiteness in the pigmentation of her skin. I’m concerned that it is an autoimmune rash and actually brought her to the doctor on Tuesday for an exam and blood work. I asked the doctor to test her for Lupus markers and hopefully we’ll know in the next couple of days. The rash is nasty and seemingly unrelated to medication or Batten Disease. She is quite uncomfortable because its currently in her inner and outer thigh area so hopefully that will clear up or move soon. I’m also waiting on a Dermatology referral to Boston Medical Center.
Good News! We are (me and the 4 kids) headed to Colorado for a quick trip to see the most AMAZING friends and family in Kansas City and to cross The Flying W Christmas Round-Up from our Bucket List. Rachel has loved the Flying W since she was an infant so this should be a truly remarkable experience for her and for the other kids. They are STOKED about going to the 8pm showing so they get to stay up!
This Saturday I am taking the kids (with the help of my Mom) to the Make-A-Wish Christmas party at Boston’s Logan Airport. Apparently they have the party *IN* the Delta Airlines Hangar so I am really excited for the kids to see that.
Merry Christmas. 🙂 Today’s picture is the kids with Santa, taken at the Hull MA Carousel Shop. I’ve put this picture in our yearly business Christmas card. 🙂
