For one of the two blog posts I owe you today.
Because one is all I have time for at present.
In about two hours, Little AM and I will be at the allergist's office, where she'll likely be poked and prodded beyond all reason.
(No, she doesn't know that yet. Yes, I've promised her ice cream when it's all over.)
Hopefully, prayerfully, they'll find out why she has such bad allergy attacks at the end of July/beginning of August. And also in November. And also in May.
And maybe even why she broke out into such awful hives just before school got out.
Part of me thinks I'm overreacting (even though it was two separate doctors who recommended this testing) and part of me knows that, in about two weeks, I'll be right back at the doctor's office trying to find yet another prescription answer to her allergy symptoms.
The other post I owe you? The irrepressable Valerie has nominated me for an award, and I have to nominate some other folks, but I just haven't had a chance to get my ducks in a row about that yet.
The (possibly) worst part about this testing? We'll be in there for about four hours, right around the middle of the day. For two girls who are used to eating on a schedule, it's cutting right smack dab in the middle of our lunch hours.
But fear not - I'm thinking ahead, and stocking my purse with Fruit Roll-Ups.
Because what better sustinance, in times of medical testing, than plastic fruit that'll make your tongue look like Batman?
