New Symptom

If you’d seen Timothy today and saw how he was, you’d never know he was sick and is scheduled to be hospitalized on Monday… Sometimes, I really don’t get it.  He looks and acts “healthy”.  He was in such a good mood today.  Really happy and playful :).  He must have a really high tolerance for pain.  As of this past Sunday, he developed some skin lesions or abscesses.  He has had one before, but not like this:

The largest one is bigger than a quarter.

I counted over 13 the other day.

The doctor couldn’t believe Timothy was not bothered by these.  She said most kids would be really cranky… the abscesses were really tight, like a big pimple, so the pressure alone would have bothered him.  He didn’t show any discomfort.

So every night this week, his nightly routine got longer by at least 10 minutes… There were a lot of meds to apply to his little body :(.

  1. Oh my goodness! I can't believe he's not bothered - what a blessing that God has seemed to give him a high pain tolerance. We will be praying for you, and your whole family that this hospitalization will go as well as it can.

  2. He developed some skin lesions or abscesses. He has had one before, but not like this. He is very hard baby to get the pain and nothing to say.
