"Hive" you seen her????
Look at my poor sweetie!!!! On Monday morning Lizzie began to break out in hives. It began as a very small patch on her leg and quickly spread. By 5:00 that night she looked miserable and her face and lips were very swollen. I kept her close to me that night and the next morning (aside from being very tired from NO sleep), she was one big, huge, itchy HIVE!!! Even her sweet little feet were covered and it hurt her to walk. She was just miserable and when Lizzie is miserable, everyone is miserable!!! Lizzie has some sensory issues and the itchiness that she was feeling was probably multiplied by about a bazillion or in other words, a lot and Lizzie is not one to suffer in silence! Oh no, I must have heard, "I itchy" about a bazillion times, well a lot anyway:) So off to the doctor we go, and where Lizzie goes, so goes Em. After arriving at the doctor's office, we get checked in and head to the dreaded (dun, dun, dun) "sick" room where all the paranoid, I mean, good Mommas tell their children not to touch anything, including all the really cool toys that we, of course, don't have at home because, well, you know, we don't have ANY cool toys at our house!! That always works well!! Thank goodness for antibacterial gel! Seriously, I should buy stock! Anyway, I digress! So we get settled into the "sick" room only to be called very quickly out of the "sick" room and into one of the tiny rooms in the back where there are NO toys (except of course the cool stool that spins and rolls and is great for flinging children across the room) and of course there are never any sick kids back in those rooms, right????? Riiiiight!!!!
So we sit in this little toy free, germ laden room with NOTHING to do but wait, and wait, and wait, sooooo we have to get a little creative...
Remember the spinning stool????
Lots of ways to have fun with this one!!! Hehe!!
Making videos can be fun too!
Can you tell that this one is at the beginning of our wait...
and this one was at the end!!!!
Just a little stir crazy!!!!
It was 2 days of an Epi shot, prednisone, antihistamines and lots of creative fun!!
We will be at the allergist's office next week. Let's hope he has some cool toys too or at the very least, a great spinning stool!!! Hehe!!!
