Another Burning Bum

Noah is doing well. The antibiotic seems to have really helped. He has a few more days to go to make sure they stay clear though.

One problem though... It brought back the really acidic poop that is burning holes in his poor little bum. I am trying everything and its just not working so we are back to the Lyticain cream and the Ilex. Only problem with the iLex is it makes his bum cheeks stick together. I try really hard to put the vasaline there so it won't but it doesn't help. I wonder if that will keep him from being able to poop is he needs to?!?! ;)

But he really is doing so well. You just can't tell all that he has been through just by looking at him. He also has more personality than I have ever seen in a baby his age. He honestly thinks he is funny. He does stuff to make me laugh and then starts laughing himself. Or he will cock his head and give you this look than slowly desolves into a little grin and then he just bursts out laughing. It's the cutest thing I have ever seen.

I just adore him. He brings me SO much joy. And even though the past 8 months has been hard, I wouldn't have him any other way. I love that he is so special. That he is my miracle. I wish I could take away his suffering. But since this is the road we have all been called to walk... I am honored to be a Heart Mommy. Especially since I'm the Mommy to a BEAUTIFUL Heart Baby.


  1. I am so glad that he is getting better!! Yeah!!

    One trick that I have found is that I use Ilex at night (with a huge coating of vaseline) and I use calmoseptine or desitin during the day. I don't like to use the Ilex during the day because it is so frustrating to keep wiping it off. The calmoseptine is the best during the day. You can order it any pharmacy or Walgreens keeps it in stock behind the counter.

    I completely agree with you about not changing a thing about how our sons came to us. They were supposed to come sick. I also feel so honored to be a heart mommy!


  2. I am glad that he is doing better. I am sorry his little bum-bum is hurting though.
