Thank you everyone for your kind comments, concern and prayers about Alasdair's current battle with his eczema. It really means a lot to me, and our family, to have so many lovely friends across the world!
I'm pleased to say that Alasdair has been taking his yucky medicine like a trooper, 4 times a day, and is showing some improvement. I showed him the post from Monday night today and he wanted me to take another photo of him today to see how it compared!
Although the sore bits are still there, they are no longer weeping and he hasn't been complaining of them as much when he eats either.
He also wanted to show everyone his hands...
...which were due a dose of moisturiser at the time, and he was very concerned that his toothbrush should be in the photo too :0)
And his sore little ears? They are getting there slowly too.
He was feeling so much brighter yesterday that he ventured outside to the play outside in the snow with his brothers, although he didn't last too long as it was quite windy too and the wind chill really was quite bitter. Not ideal for his little face but he didn't complain.
We had another fresh dumping of snow on Monday night and it continued to fall all day Tuesday. There is yet more forecast for the end of the week!
Hard to believe that this time last year was the start of an unseasonably warm week, with temperatures of around 21C. Yesterday didn't even get anywhere near above 0C! I was just re-reading this post from last year and longing for a little bit of that warmth to return soon!
