7:30 Central Time: In my last post, I mentioned that Sophie's been sick. She seems to be feeling better, but she's also had a pretty bad problem with hives and itching, pretty much ever since we moved here. It seems to be worse when she's been out in the sun or gets upset (heat-induced?). The antibiotic she's been taking since the beginning of treatment has a tendency to cause sun sensitivity, and we had been wondering if somehow she's becoming allergic to it. We gave it to her on Monday, and by the time she got home from day camp (where they had been playing outside a lot), she was nearly hysterical with itching. So I called the doctors in Chapel Hill to ask for advice (they said I could that anytime, even years from now), and then I called her new doctor in Lubbock. Her old doctor talked through several possibilities and thought the Septra could definitely be causing problems and thought we might want to think about stopping it. Her new doctor wasn't as convinced about that but thought she should see a dermatologist and set her up with an appointment this morning. We did skip the Septra yesterday and kept her home from camp (they were going swimming), and she was fine all day (and is fine now). But Randall is getting ready to take her to Lubbock (90 miles away) for the appointment. Now that she's not itching at all, it seems like a waste, but maybe they can give us some ideas. Sophie hopped right out of bed this morning and was in a fantastic mood. What a change from this weekend, when she was a total crab!
