Well, here is the update that I got. She didnt end up going to the hospital. The Dr. called last night and said that he had faxed everything over to
the infectious diseases department at the hospital. They said they have no clue. They also said they want to do a biopsy. The pediatritian said
"not just yet lets just keep an eye on it". BECAUSE she still has no other symptoms. They believe all her internal organs are just fine because
she still has no fever, or anything else, not even a headache. They went ahead and took her off the antibiotic they just put her on thinking that,
that might be why they started turning into blisters and sores, and also might be why it looked like the immuine system was in overdrive killing off
good cells too. Another thing that might be worth mentioning, my niece says it doesnt hurt. I know that is a good thing, but judging by what her
legs look like, that really does not seem normal.
So, now I guess its a waiting game. No one wants to wait, but no one wants to go cutting into her legs either. They ruled out lupus and most
everything else because they said she would have other symptoms if that were the case.
Considering the pediatritian said they dont know, and the infectious disease department said they havent a clue, I think the decision was made to
take her to every specialist they could, to see if they knew. An allergist, dermitologist, what ever else they can think of.
