Olivia's bug bitten eyelid update

Well I kept her home yesterday and when you see how her eyelid looked you will know why.

This is how my poor little bugga's eyelid looked when she woke up yesterday morning. She is just like me when she gets bit by May flies. The poor thing could barely see out of that eye. I tried to get her to put an ice pack on it (per instructions on WebMD) but she didn't like it. So, I gave her some Benadryl and Acetaminophen.

She started to feel better and of course her ADD/ADHD kicked in. She was bored so after much fussing and whining about me not being able to play with her (she thinks I sit around all day while she is at school and not running around the house frantically trying to complete chores, run errands, make phone calls, order stuff online, fill out forms and what not) she wanted to make a stuffy out of felt. So she told me what shape she wanted and I drew it, cut it and she sewed it.

In the above photo you can see her eye was starting to look better.

Here she is this morning looking and feeling better. Still itchy and sore (she got bit on Monday!) so I gave her Benadryl and Acetaminophen. Of course she had to take her kitty to show off at school ; ) I just taught her how to sew this past year and she has become quite good at it.

Am I the only one who feels like they just want to put their sickly, accident prone kid in a bubble? She is always sick and/or injured. I feel so bad for her that she always has something painful or uncomfortable going on with her.

Wow she did a great job with that cat!

Yes about the bubble. If possible my family is moving to a bubble village on the dark side of the moon someday (and no peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, fish or eggs or polyurethane will be allowed in my village, either... and definitely NO bugs, lol)

Where is this village? I want to move there now : ) Is it isolated away from all the normal people?

I'm beginning to wonder what is going on with her skin. She developed dry skin and bumps on her face about two weeks ago. She might have some kind of contact dermatitis or maybe an allergic reaction to something. Her eyelid should look better by now, I'm beginning to wonder if the two are related.

Any thoughts about the skin issue?

Ouch, Ouch, OUCH!! My eye is involuntarily twitching.

I hope it starts to heal up very soon!

And please let me know once you get the bubble village up and running. :)

She is back to 100% eyelid health : ) And on the issue of her dry face skin and bumps, my mom gave her a bar of Dove sensitive skin and it cleared up after one use!! Yay!
