I had to take Keegs to the doctor today because of the pacee rash on his face that has stayed around for a month. (If you look at the last several pics you can see it.) I called the nurse to see if they had any tricks up their sleeve in how to get rid of it. Instead they asked for us to come in because his saliva could have bacteria. (eeeew!) Our doctor's office is very cautious and looks at everything. I almost did not want to call because I knew they would want us to come in. I did not want to pay $20 for him to recommend lotion. So, we went and I am very glad that we did. Our doc said that he was on the brink of a staph infection! Who knew. He gave us a prescription for some steroid cream to clear it up. Then the words I dreaded came out of Dr. Razaks mouth. "You must stop using the pacifiers and go cold turkey." My thoughts went like this, " Oooooh! Not that! Keeg's loves his pacees! He sleeps with at least 2 every night!!! What about my long trips to Dallas?? His sleep schedule just leveled out!" The look on my face said it all and he chuckled. He did not care. Easier said than done Mister!! But you know what...Keegan went to sleep without one tonight. So it can be done. Goodbye Pacees...we will miss you! You have all been my hero! You will forever be remembered.
