No, I'm not talking about the "Occupy Wall Street" kind of rally. I pity those dumb, hippy protesters camping out with their signs thinking their grassroots campaign is going to change the well-oiled machine that is the American economic system. In the words of Dr. Phil, "How's that workin' out for ya?" Changing the world, are ya? Yeah, didn't think so...
Anyway, I'm talking about the turn-your-hat-inside-out, momentum-swing-in-the-opposite-direction, bring-out-the-rally-monkey type of rally. That's right, we're no longer down-in-the-dumps defeated like Mommy B's last post. Alli woke up yesterday morning and her rash had significantly subsided. You could still see them, but we can tell they are well on their way to healing up. She acted as if nothing was wrong all day long while at daycare, and was great last night too. She got her usual sleep the last two nights, and was looking even better this morning.
So, I think Sunday was the worst of it and we're finally out of the woods. Another piece of good news is that she hasn't been grabbing her ears at all and hasn't had a single drop of snot since Saturday. We go back to the doctor next week for one last checkup on her ears, and if things look good she can get the last of her one-year shots (only a couple months behind, no big deal).
Yes, the Christmas tree is still bare, but at least our little Alli Ru is feeling better! We'll probably have to wait until she falls asleep each night before we can work on decorating it, otherwise I have a feeling she'll be a little too eager to help, if you know what I mean and I think you do. Even though there still appears to be some teeth popping through soon, things are finally settling down a bit and returning to some resemblance of normalcy.
AND... only 19 more days until Mommy B's favorite holiday of the year... CHRISTMAS!
