Allergy Alert!



Poor poor Cade, he had a rough couple of weeks! He has an allergy, either to Keflex or eggs (neither of which is agood option). After eating lunch a few days ago he broke out in this insane rash and his eyebrows (and lips to a lesser degree) swelled up. I rushed him to the hospital and if you know where I live-it took me 8 minutes from here to the U hospital. Yikes. No more driving to the hospital. In my defense he was breathing fine, I was just being a spaz. So apparently one can have a delayed allergic reaction to Keflex. This sucks! Now he has to to see a pediatric allergist and we have to avoid all egg. WHAT ABOUT BIRTHDAY CAKE?!?! I guess we'll be testing vegan cakes. Poor poor peanut. On the plus side-cake testing, mmm cake.

Aww...Hugs to Cade. That sounds like a scary day....I hope it's okay and not a severe allergy....

At least if his first Birthday cake has to be Vegan...he won't remember how it tastes....although maybe it won't taste too bad!

Too bad, I have one with a severe allergy to nuts. Difficult and scary.

Cake is good :)

Poor little peanut. Allergies suck! I have a great recipe for vegan chocolate cake though. I will email it to you.

I think they hand us the ability to be a spaz when we give birth. How scary and glad he is OK, but hopefully it won't be too bad when they figure out what it is.
