Our poor P man. Lately he has had skin irritation after skin irritation. Almost a year later, Palmer is still dealing with his Molluscum Catagiosum. Most of the bumps aren't too uncomfortable, but they keep him from taking baths and more importantly (to a five year old) keep him from being able to go swimming. He also recently had an irregular mole removed from the left side of his head.
Brody has begun to get huge cancer sores in his mouth just like Greg does. His dentist informed me that when they get to a certain size, which Brody's and Greg's are some of the biggest the doctor has seen, they are actually classified as a type of ulcer. Once again, there is no cure, and treatment hardly even works for their type of cancer sores.
I know it's part of life to go through illnesses and trials, but the mother in me just wishes I could take away all their pain. I hurt when they hurt. I've jokingly told Greg that both of these cases are his fault, since both ailments can be tracked back through his family genes. Poor kids, they have to inherit all their parents' problems. Hopefully there's enough good in us as well to balance them out.
