Another Allergy!!!

August 23, 2007

Today I gave Gentry egg for the first time, that was a big mistake. Before he had even finished it he had broken out in hives on his mouth and forarms (where he had been touching the tray), it then spread over his belly and neck. It looked like he had been attacked by a thousand mosquitoes. Luckily I dosed him with benadryl immediately and put hydro-cortisone and benadryl gel on his skin, so he just cried for 30 min. It’s such a bad feeling to see him have an allergic reaction like that, I get sooooo scared and if makes me feel horrible because I know they inherited it from me (Micah’s not allergic to anything!). I took some pics for the doctor…

    Not a big deal, babe. These things happen; it’s just an accident.

    Gentry looks like a prize fighter in the face shot!

    It runs in the family Ami! Your DadDad had tons of allergies, your mom has and so do I (mine are mainly respiratory though). Anyway, poor little guy! There is no way to know in advance what he is allergic to but at least now you know!
    love you guys! (be careful about giving him peanuts, that is a bad one)
