Our 6 month anniversary of kline being off topical steroids!! holy cow, half a year!

 Here is a picture of Kline and i last year...on our trip to see grandma and grandpa in new jersey...the start of his red skin when we ran out of topical steroids and the itchy bastard showed up!
And here is kline 13 months later still trying to kick the shit out of that itchy bastard!

I am so freaking sick of skin!

Talking about it
Worrying about it
Cleaning it
Lubing it
Feeding it
Scratching it
Petting it
Rubbing it
Cold handing it
Warm handing it
Blowing it
Detoxing it
Smelling it
Oiling it

You name we have done it for Kline's skin.  It has been 6 months of pure hell, but we have made it. 6 month anniversary of no steroids of any kind!!! Hallelujah, praise the lord, can I get an amen!!! 6 months that I never want to relive again and wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy!  Was it worth it and would I do it again?  in a heart beat!  To know that one day, sooner than later, my son's full body skin "eczema" will be a memory of the past. Will we ever forget what we went through? HELL NO!!!!  We will remember and we will be there always to help others get  through the hellish days and god awful night of topical steroid addiction withdrawal!

  1. Amen! Hallelujah!!!!
    Yes, you guys will never forget this, but hopefully Kline is young enough that he will never remember it!!! You are a true warrior! You are doing so much, not only for your beautiful little boy, but for all of those across the globe that you are supporting and inspiring. You are an amazing mama, one I am so honored to have had enter into my life!!! Let's hope that during the next six months his big beak comes! It's on the horizon. I just know it!!!

  2. So nice to see what we have ahead of us as a family, back visiting GMa and GPa in Jersey. Chillin' on the deck, munching on chips and salsa and drinking Margaritas. Kline wetting us all down with the hose, and then gluten free, dairy free cheese pizza on the grill. Lemon ice for desert. Can't get much better than that! Love 'em everyday! Love you! GMa and GPa
