Yeah, it certainly didn't present like a normal case. Heck, the initial "little spot on the eyelid" that seems to start all cases hung around for almost 2 weeks before it started to look even remotely like Juvenile Cellulitis. We were also thrown off because she's outside the typical age range by a couple of months.
She's looking a hundred times better already! The swelling is all but gone from her eyelids, and her lymph nodes are almost back to normal. I hope the follicles around her eyes weren't damaged so much that they can't recover, and I hope her slightly excessive tearing isn't permanent. It has been only 2 full days on Prednisone, though, so,we have hope for a full recovery... Possibly minus a few eyelashes that appear at this point a little too damaged. But we shall see.
Oh good! So glad to hear improvement!! I've been thinking about you & wondering how she's doing!! Thanks for the update.
