Is it MRSA?

On Friday, we thought Lily had the chicken pox. On Monday, after waking up with what appeared to be a nasty sunburn, we discovered she has a staph infection--the same germ responsible for the deadly MRSA. Fortunately, Lily seems to be responding well to antibiotics (MRSA does not respond well to antibiotics). However, to keep her from scratching, the doctor devised these homemade "casts" (really just a few towels wrapped around her arms). But Lily won't let that stop her from eating. She's figured out a way to get the food from tray to mouth...
