Off again

I swear I am keeping the doctors in this town in business!!!

Today Tink is off to see the allergy dr. Her ent (ear, nose & throat dr) and pediatrician think she may have allergies causing all her ear and sinus problems. And if we don't get the fluid to drain off her ears soon the ent is going to put tubes in. So, allergy testing is being done today.

I am not looking forward to this.

Last night I tried explaining to her what to expect. I told her she will be stuck in her back, but it won't be extremely painful. I also assured her she can sit in my lap and we will take her lovey blanket and a toy and some things to keep her distracted like her DS and ipod (she calls her Barbie Girl an ipod.) She is very brave, so we will get through it.

I just hope I wasn't lying about the not painful part!!!

Don't worry, the allergy testing isn't so painful that she'll remember it for the rest of her life and run screaming from needles. She might cry and stuff, though. I had the testing done when I was about eight, and I don't remember anything but red bumps on my arms. Good Luck.

m sorry your little one has to go through that. But it is better that she has it!

I'm sure she will do fine :)
