Kylie's dermatology appointment

We had our follow up appointment for Kylie's eczema today at Children's Mercy Hospital. They confirmed that her skin was looking fantastic. It really is so much softer now that we put vaseline on her twice a day. We aren't having to use the steroids as much, which is good, but there are still a couple spots that seem to need it every day. Since she's still scratching (and whimpering) in her sleep, they decided to add prescription benadryl to her list of medecines. So now she's supposed to take zyrtec in the mornings and benadryl up to twice a day. We are going to try to stick to once a day for the benadryl, but the dermatologist said we could do it twice a day if we felt she needed it. We have a follow up appointment in 3 months, let's hope they don't add any more medecine next time we go.

On a side note, look how adorable Kylie is in the hospital gown. While we were in the room waiting for the doctor, Kylie told us that she had to go use the potty. Jason took her down the hallway to the bathroom and I could hear the nurses and doctors "ooh"ing and "ahh"ing at her cuteness all the way from our room.
