Readers of my blog have been scant for some time, but I guess the “Tears” post was a little too much for anyone to comment on. Oh well.
The big news is: Charis has her cast off. Eight weeks in a cast, and I didn’t post one picture of her. That is because the only ones I took were on my stupid phone which will not allow me to upload photos to my computer. Since we are too cheap (or broke) to pay for the upgrade in service to be able to send the photos from my phone, I really shouldn’t take pictures with it!
After the cast was removed, her skin underneath was GROSS!!!! It was so dry and flaky, I didn’t want her on me. Even after using a luffa on her arm, it was flaky. Then at her glorious bath last night (glorious because she could actually be in the tub long enough to get really clean), I had a revelation. I thought, “If dandruff shampoo works on dead dry skin on the skalp, perhaps it will help remove the dead dry skin from her arm.” So I used dandruff shampoo and the luffa on her arm, and it made a huge difference. The flakes all came off. Now her skin is rough, but we are putting lotion on it whenever we can. It will be back to normal soon. Long sleeves were in order for today so the dry skin won’t distract her to much at school.
