Charlotte's Journey Home

Just a Regular Kid, Sort Of

Charlotte is on Tube-Free Probation

Charlotte had what looks like a rash on her cheeks, her chin, all the way to her ears. I didn’t want to put the tape on her face until she saw a doctor.

Dr. Ramadan took one look at her and said:
1—The rash is typical baby stuff. She’s wiping her hands all over her face after sticking them in her mouth. The little red bumps on her face are dry skin from rubbing her face. “Just normal baby stuff.” She’s getting the rash under her chin because she’s getting chubby. “Getting chubby,” the doctor’s exact words. Hooray!

2—When I told Dr. Ramadan how well Charlotte had been eating since the tube came out, she gave me the go ahead to leave the tube out until Wednesday as a trial. Fingers crossed.

Today’s weight= 11 lbs. 10 oz.
