Aww NUTS!

Long story short... Grey is very allergic to peanuts. This is what will happen if he has them again. Within seconds of coming into contact of peanuts, his symptoms include hives and horrible itchy, splotchy skin, sneezing fits, vomiting, couching and wheezing, and swollen lips (which I'm sure includes other swollen things). It was not a fun day for anyone.

Many of the hives were about the size of a quarter.
Grey: Mom, can you just make it stop?
Enter this dude. Yep, the EpiPen. Our doctor prescribed "us" two of these and lots of information, including a video, on allergies and how to use the pen. I'm so not looking forward to using it...ever.

Poor little Grey. He sure does suffer with his sensitive skin. It makes me itch just looking at those pictures.

Oh how awful! Aidan's allergic reaction came from penecillin (SP?). He broke out badly all over too and then it turned into this other type of reaction where the hives became huge welts and he was black and blue all over. We now stay clear of any medicines that have that in them. I can't imagine having to deal with it as often as you are. Poor boy and yes, poor you!

That stinks. So sorry. Let's cross our fingers that he grows out of it :)
