The Good News and the Bad News

Yes - this is allergy testing - yes - it was terrible - yes - it was over quickly - yes she cried - hard - yes - I was sick to my stomach and I hated hated hated that she had to go through it

but



you know what?????????
She is allergic to NOTHING and is now on two less medications than we were going in. I am now the proud of mother of an asthmatic - not an asthmatic and a child with allergies.

I guess we all gotta take the good with the bad!

on my, seeing that picture brought back memories for me. I remember going through all that horrible testing too. So glad that she isn't allergic to anything and therefore doesn't have to take allergy shots!

Hey lady, I feel for you having to go through that with her. I know it was hard for both of you. I had to do all of that testing when I was little too. Not fun! But I'm so so glad that she is allergy-free! Hooray!
