We went out to dinner with my parents last night to California Pizza Kitchen. Twenty minutes later, it was obvious Nicholas was having a severe allergic reaction to something he ate. His entire, 26 pound body was the color of a tomato and covered in hives. On top of that, he was listless, which really put me over the edge on the “Scared Shitless” scale of fear and confusion. At the Urgent Care they gave him a shot of steroids and benadryl. We watched him through the night, and today he is pale, has dark circles under his eyes, and is acting like absolutely nothing terrifying happened last night. Fit as a fiddle, he is.
I took him to the pediatrician today. I disagree with his approach (there is no approach) so I am getting a second opinion.
I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed and disconnected from my family. That is no good, so I am taking a little break. The Mister will hopefully be working soon, and it’s important to me that we spend as much time together while we can. Plus, this week is Mikey’s spring break! Hopefully we will do something fun and exciting, and not just visit pediatric allergist offices
Have a great spring while I am gone. Hopefully when I return I will be 50 pounds thinner. 🙂
p.s. Allergies SUCK ASS.
