Talk about proof that a JRA child cant heal their body normally like a well child can, I give you exhibit A. A simple hang nail growing wrong & getting infected.
After a week of Dr. Mom, cleaning it out 2x a day w/ hydrogen peroxide, it wasn't getting better on its own.
When Ryan saw it & gasped, it was the 2nd opinion that got her into the peds office getting an anti-biotic to help with the healing of this. Also, he got a lesson in how to "trim toenails." Something I am sure he knows all about but that's my job w/ the girls & OOPSIE DAISY... ok fine, I will go straight across from now on.
Another piece of evidence that shows a little "sumthin" has to be helped by a little "sumthin" to heal when her body cant heal it by itself. Charlotte's body is too busy fighting bigger wars than to worry about a little hangnail...
And life is busy with "tinkering!" She said, "This is something Tinkerbell would build!"
