Day 16

As the week progresses, Lila gets more and more tired.  She is not as quick on her toes as earlier in the week, and we are going to stay home from school tomorrow afternoon.  This afternoon at school she spent much of her time staring into space.  This is what she does when she is exhausted and can't even focus, so it's not even worth it for her to be there tomorrow.  She can catch up on her sleep over the weekend and start again on Monday.

However, this morning she woke up at 6:15 saying "Daddy, can you help me please.  have to go potty".  Matt went into her room and she did need to go potty!  Usually she just hangs out, laying in her bed, while she goes potty in her diaper. We have been asking her for at least the past year to just say in the morning that she has to go potty and we will come into her room and help her.  She is capable of getting out of her bed and coming into our room, this is just something that takes some processing, and too much time where she would most likely go in her diaper by the time she took all of the steps to get to our room.  So, even though it made for an early morning, we were very proud of her.

This morning Lila and I had some quiet time together where we cut, glued, and played with stickers in her Snip It book.  For the past two years, Lila has been using a special type of scissors used for fine motor development, and has not been able to work traditional scissors.  Well, today she was successfully using traditional scissors, and the adult size!  I was so proud of her, and she was proud of herself as well.  Here is her her picture she made...
Lila cut and pasted the majority of those pieces :-)
The last words on the mysterious bumps...after having many people, and doctors, tell me that they would use steroids or hydrocortizone to get rid of the bumps, I continued to remind myself that I am not looking for a way to get rid of them, as much as I am looking for an answer to where they could be coming from.  So I thank you all for your advice, however after a long discussion with our homeopath, he helped me to understand the root of the problem.  After traumatic experiences, medications, and foreign substances in your system, the body has to purge the toxins, emotions, stresses, etc.  The easiest way to do that is through the skin.  So, after the "boils" erupted, they caused a little itching and now just look like little red healing sores.  Skin irritations aren't bad, they are just a way for the body to do it's job, and do it well :-)
