Allergist Appointment

Everett's allergist called with an opening tomorrow. I know it will be a long appointment and that they will do the scratch tests. He's asked if it's going to hurt, if he will get shots, I don't know the answers to that. Any ideas? He is the kind of kid if I prepare him with what to expect he deals very well!

I have heard sometimes they draw blood. Hope you guys don;t have to deal with that.

Hope everything goes smoothly regardless of what kind of tests they do.

Grumpypants did well at the doctor. He reacted to pineapple and a mild reaction to ragweed. He didn't test chocolate but said it was highly unlikely since he is OK with dairy. They don't test for red dye, so I guess we just have to experiment on that part. Intrestingly he didn't react to the penecillin, but has reacted to antibiotics Beee

They did 6 sets of 8 pricks. . . .after today we will go back in a year and retest the things he already reacted to (pineapple and ragweed)
