Sara had a follow up appointment with the dermatologist today. They looked at her back and and found another skin allergy. It is lanolin. Which is in all lotions, chapstick, lip gloss. The nurse started going through a list of stuff asking me if we used any of it. Besides lip gloss (which was sad because Sara LOVES lip gloss) I kept saying no, no, no. Then she said the word that made me happy and sad all in the same moment: eucerin. I looked right at her and said, "we lather her in it every night." She high fived me and said, "we found it!" and walked out of the room. While she was gone, I started crying. When she came back in, she saw I was crying and said, "oh, honey, you didn't know!" I had to explain to her that I wasn't crying because I felt guilty, but because I was so happy. To finally know what might be causing her eczema to be so bad is such a relief. I told her we have been praying for her to be healed for so long. She said that she was going to add her to her prayer list, because she is wanting a miracle for Sara.
I have hope! The love Sara at the office. They all are so impressed with how mature she is. I have been so proud of her the past couple of weeks. She has been such a trooper. She didn't even complain when I told her we couldn't use lip gloss for a couple of weeks. She is ready for some relief!
One more thing from Sara. She was talking to me this morning on the way to MDO. Just carrying on a conversation with me like a big girl. Asking me about when I was a little girl. She couldn't believe I didn't like girl toys and hated dresses! :) Then she said the cutest thing. Sara: It's a good thing that God didn't make just all boys. Me: Why? Sara: Because they would shoot all the animals." Man, I love that girl!
