Doing better again

Eden had a tonsillectomy 2 weeks ago and was in bed for the entire 2 week holiday ... so much rest she caught up on and de-stressed after exams and school (although I must add she loves being back at school again).

She looked terrible when her tonsils were removed (everyone at the hospital commented and gave advice wrt her skin and was shocked to realize this was the effect of topical cortisone addiction).

Anyway, one of the nurses told me that when she had her tonsils removed, her eczema vanished (perhaps related, who knows ... but what I do know is she went through a terrible flare and then as soon as her tonsils were removed and we started her on the course of antibiotics the flare lifted and her skin started to clear ... so much so that she's back at school again for the second term).

Much to be grateful for ... and even if another flare hits (which is possible) ... I know that it will disappear again and her skin actually heals now after every flare ... I am so grateful for these breaks in between and little (and big victories).

Eden's skin prior to the tonsillectomy & anti-biotic treatment ... NASTY 10 1/2 month flare 

Eden currently after the tonsillectomy & meds ... doing so much better. Feeling happier and more relaxed ... so grateful it's gone for now.


  1. Wow, so much improvement - glad Eden is enjoying school!

  2. Wow, she looks so much better! Sending her our best!

  3. Eden, you look AWESOME!! Keep it up warrior girl and warrior mama!!

  4. Thank you Josh, Alisa and Geanna. It's been such a difficult road we are just relieved to see progress and have those breaks. :)
