Cameron, who we had a hunch was allergic to grass and pollen, went to see the allergy doctor today, since his daily dose of Zyrtec wasn't helping with excema or allergies much anymore. After 64 tiny pin pricks on his back the doctor confirmed that he is allergic to ALL trees, grass, pollen of any kind including weeds, dust, pets and the list goes on. I could see his confidence in the nurse begin to wain as she continued to prick his sensitive back with various toxins. He wriggled around for 20 minutes itching like a dog with fleas, but wasn't allowed to scratch at all. His back looked like he'd been stung by a swarm of wasps when we were done. Poor guy.
Then off to the lab to get some blood drawn. He took it like a champ as they filled ten vials with his "cool" dark red blood. The nurse told him he was the gas station filling up all the tanks with his blood. We were almost finished when Sarah began to wimper and when I looked down at her she was white as a ghost. Her head was sweaty and clammy and she was weak wanting me to hold her. She did this last month at my doctor check up when I got my blood taken and got a shot, except she fainted! I though it was an isolated incident thinking she may have tripped but she fell flat on her face and she acted scared and really disoriented. Kind of funny to see her have a "Darren" reaction not having any clue as to why she felt the way she did. No more needles for Sarah! Thanks for passing on the wimp gene, Darren!!!
