Being a Parent of a Child With Allergies is Sometimes Heartbreaking

posted by Sabrina Conte @sabeerna -

Our daughter Eleanor, is happy and healthy.  She's three years old, warm, loving and active.  However, her allergies have really started bothering her, especially this time of year.

Since she started eating she's always had an issue digesting eggs.  She had blood work done when she was about 18 months and they found she has a VERY slight allergy to egg whites.  She can eat them baked in so, no worries about cookies or cakes, she just can't eat a cooked egg.  That allergy doesn't really concern me or the allergist at this point, it's her seasonal allergies that do. 

Look at this poor kid with her allergy scratch test!  She was so brave.  The "E" is the egg test, the + sign is the environmental allergies, and the - sign is a controlled area.  

Eleanor Allergy Tests

She's got a nasty cough she can't shake because of these environmental allergies.  She couldn't go to a birthday party at Bounce U because if she's too active when she has this cough she can have a coughing fit, and her little face turns red and you can tell it hurts.  She's being treated with a medication that doctors use for both seasonal induced asthma and coughs.  Crossing fingers and saying prayers that it works. 

Parents with allergies, it's rough seeing them suffer isn't it??
