fungus...

Claire's mouth started to bleed...a lot. Took her to dentist and doc. They said it was thrush ( you know, fungus in you mouth). Apparently you only get it if you are immune compromised or an infant. I am considered immune compromised because I'm prego and Claire is because of the steroids. We both got it, but Claire's is worse. It got to the point that when she would move her mouth at all, it would bleed. Her gums still bleed when anything touches them. I can't brush them without making them bleed. It's horrible.

she is doing alright, though. She's eating better now that she's been on the thrush meds for a few days. What a relief! yucky, yucky stuff. She is sure a trooper.

Seriously?! You need a break - both of you!!! Thrush huh? Hopefully that is it. The end.

You guys just can't catch a break right now. Hopefully the storm will soon pass and your road will smooth out.
