Hey ladies! I hope all of you are doing wonderfully. Pop in on this thread, say hi and tell us how you are. How is the end of summer going for you? Back to school? Any problems/praises with the schools and your child's allergies?
Rebecca did us all the favour of picking up a virus last Saturday, so she's just FINALLY starting to get better, and Elias still has a lovely runny nose. Get this... THEY got runny noses and coughs, and *I* got an ear infection. Of all things when I didn't even have a sniffle!!! To go with that infection, my whole right side of my face/neck got super swollen, and then I developed a ton of canker sores in my mouth. *sigh* I'm rather in pain still, lol. Otherwise, all is going well. We did test out the soy reaction a few weeks ago, because I figured she'd been soy free for a year, and is almost two, so just might have outgrown the reaction... it was a lot less, but still happened, so we'll avoid it for another year, I guess. DH and I are actually talking about just going 100% soy free permanently anyway, lol.
Gracie started junior kindergarten earlier this month. We went in personally to drop off her allergy emergency action forms, she gave her teacher an Epipen demo herself and I spoke with the principal. No problems. It all seemed to go well, but I'm still sitting by the phone while she's at school.
At this point we go back to the allergist in December to skin test a few specific foods.
Hey! My babies are back in school (grades 1 & 3 this year, yikes!). We do the standard epipen show for my oldest son`s teacher, & the astham spiel for my youngest. The grade 1 teacher is a friend of mine, whose baby boy is allergic to dairy, eggs & now nuts, so she`s well knowledged in that area!
R has a cold right now, which means his asthma is acting up. Our health district finally got a pedatrician (but is based out of a town 35 minutes away), so I need to get both boys into him, & get our referals, seeing as the drs in our town say they aren`t "severe enough to warrant a visit to the specialist". Um, HELLO! My son`s throat swelled shut & you renew our epi pen script every year. AND, my 6 year old is on 6 idfferent asthma meds! Ugh. Very frustrating! So hopefully the new dr will help me out.
Other than that, just getting into the school, hockey & everyday life routine again!
Geez what a lazy excuse for a doc! I hope the new ones are better. That is definately one area where we are really blessed. Our pedi was my pedi as a child; plus that fact that he had a child with special needs. So he is very understanding, and it makes our lives a lot easier!!
