C playing Fall ball, he was on the Storm
The last few years have been hard for our children as far as allergies go, mostly C (and recently E). We have been taking C to the allergist for a few years now. And after trying several medications he will begin desensitization shots in the next few weeks. He has a lot of environmental allergens like mold and cedar. I really hope these shots work! I hate the thought of him getting shots but I don't like the alternative either - having trouble breathing, constant nose sniffling, throat irritations, etc. Anyone else have to go through desensitization shots for you or someone you know? I would love to hear about your experience.
Princess E at the Fall Fest October 2015
We discovered a few weeks ago that E is allergic to fire ants. She had a scary episode when I was in New York. She was bit by ~ 10 fire ants. Her foot swelled up, she had hives on her tummy, blotches started forming all over her face and her voice became raspy - really scary I know. I thought it was a quantity thing but her pediatrician told us that she definitely has an allergic reaction to fire ant bites. I now carry Benadryl and an Epi-Pen wherever she goes. Hopefully, we will never need to use it. I have an even greater appreciation for those who have allergies, especially multiple ones that include food.
