So, The Boy's diaper rash was just not getting any better. (That's not the funny part.) The Wife took The Boy to the Valerie Fund Center yesterday, to get the blood counts in the vain hope that he'd be getting chemo. Since his counts were, basically, non-existant on Monday, there wasn't a realistic chance in you-know-where that he'd be getting chemo. We asked the doctors and nurses about why his rash didn't seem to be improving much, and they started to hunt down a solution.
Making a long story short, it turns out that Ms. R, the babysitter, had been using the emla cream as diaper cream. The emla cream, if you didn't know, is the stuff we put on the port to numb the skin to make the port access needle painless. So, in essence, Ms. R was numbing the baby's whole diaper area each diaper change instead of using the antifungal cream.
Numb nuts, indeed.
