What started out as a site to update on our daughter's cancer has thankfully grown into a site to update on our beautiful family of four. Enjoy our journey...

who'd a thunk it?!

Well...I took Charli into the Dr today and we have some news about her rash, or at least we think we do!

It turns out that sometimes exposure to the antibiotic she is on can cause an allergic reaction very similar to this. Although there is no clear cut way to tell right now, it seems to fit the symptoms. Our Dr. in Columbus is going to contact Charli's oncologist to see what she feels.

Going to the clinic today was a good experience. Dr. Rohwer talked with me for about 30 minutes, and I left feeling very good. We talked about her treatment and how things are going. We also talked about her diet and her lack of interest in food, and also the transition over to "big girl" milk!

We should have an answer after the weekend regarding the reaction to her medicine - before her next dose.

Thanks for the concern :-)

awe, I'm sorry that Charli has a rash... that is no fun for the little ones.. =) Little David has his appointment tomorrow for his shots, on his birthday mind you... hehehe He won't be to happy about that! I'm almost done with formula!! yeah! =) But my daycare provider informed me yesterday that she doesn't supply whole milk so if that's what I want him to drink, I have to bring it. Geez, I thought I was done with bringing his 'milk'. Oh well.... enough of my complaining! hehehe
I hope Charli's 'rash' heals so she can get to what babies do best.... get into trouble! ;o)

Brenda--
David got a rash from an antibiotic when he was a baby too--he had red spots all over his tummy and back. Maybe it's something in those Taake genes! Great to see all the fun photos of your family! Jonell
