It's one of those....
I really like this book How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor. It has helped me a lot to sort through doctors' appointments.
Anyway, it's been 3 days. We are monitoring her and she is doing great: playing, eating and moving about like there is nothing wrong. And really there isn't...it's just that her body is in a war zone right now and having a major allergic reaction so we need to monitor her so that it doesn't escalate into anyphylaxis. So the rashes come and go everywhere and in different places on her body every time.
Sometimes these hives can be caused by a virus, or inflammation or an allergy to something. I think what caused this one is her teething. Anyway... these hives last 3 to 5 days to complete disappear.
This morning she woke up with a very swollen lower lip so we began Prednisone to avoid anyphylaxis. She is fine now, but we have to finish the medication even when there is no more swelling or rashes.
so it's been a crazy week... I am still not over my cold, unschooling has really taking off at my house (pun intended) and I have a custom order midway. I managed to upload some sale items on my SALE PAGE and if you are interested head that way.
I am hoping to be back to normal next week.. y'all have a great weekend and thank you Jesus for healing us! :)
PS God is still good and I am glad I went to the doctor because we filled the prescription she gave us and when we needed it (this morning) we had it. I wonder how people did back in the time when there was no medications for allergic reactions???? If you know, let me know. :)
