A Visit to the Doctor

About a month ago, Rebecca ate a biscuit with peanut butter and within a few minutes she had a rash, itchy eyes and was making weird noises.  So I quick gave her some Benadryl and she was better pretty quickly.

 So at her eighteen month checkup a few weeks ago, I mentioned it to her doctor and he recommended a visit to the allergy doctor. This morning was her visit- lots of little pokes on her back and then to the lab for a blood draw- bless her little heart.

At the doctor this morning- she had to be shirtless for about 15 minutes. She and a little boy across the hall ran around together and harassed the nurses!  The skin test came back positive for peanut allergy and the blood test will show the level of severity. 

I had been praying that she wouldn't be allergic, but guess it is not meant to be. The other mom there today gave me lots of helpful hints- her little boy is allergic to everything- so I know it could be alot worse. I am just thankful to know for sure  and we will carry on!

  1. Love your pictures of your sweet girl. You could post 100 more and I would look at every single one. So precious!
    I'm sorry to hear about the peanut allergy. I'm sure it is overwhelming but I know you will figure it out.
