I am not sure if any of you remember how sick Cameron was last year in September. The point in mentioning that is because prior to that he hadn’t been to the Dr in years. In fact our current GP didn’t even have a file for him. The older two kids just don’t get sick. We have never really had issues with either one of them. If they do get a bit of the flu, some med-lemon or corenza sorts them out.
In the last 3 weeks I have had THREE ER visits with these two older children! Cameron has been twice with this allergy mystery and last night Kiara had some hot oil splatter in her face. These kinds of ER trips are extremely stressful, more so than if they have bronchitis or tonsilitis.
There isn’t much we can do for Kiara. The burns are on her face so they can’t be bandaged up unfortunately. So all we can do is rub the cream on and medicate for pain (which fortunately is not bad). As for Cameron well we could do something if we knew what was wrong! He has been on a cocktail of meds since the first allergic episode but last night he started itching and woke up this morning with a rash that was super itchy!
We took a set of blood tests and all the nurse said was “he is allergic to everything, the Dr will discuss with you once the skin test is done”. The soonest I can book the skin test is 8 June!!!!! What are we supposed to do in the meantime? Feed him what? Water? We think the latest reaction was to nuts in a chocolate he had. This in itself is weird because he eats nuts daily in his school lunch.
This child has always been the picture of health and now suddenly he is allergic to “everything”!! It is very frustrating. He eats enough to feed a small country most days, I have no idea how I will sustain him if he is allergic to everything *sigh*.
So that brings me to my CURRENT state of being which is…. TIRED OF ADULTING!
So I did what any good adult would do and ate my way through a packet of biscuits earlier today and have had probably 4 too many cups of coffee!
Why does everything happen at the same time?
