Today most of the day was consumed a doctor's appointment, picking up prescriptions and insurance companies. Pravan was scheduled to see an allergist and I really did not know what to expect. It was an early start for all of us and the busy day started. The nurse told Pravan that she was going to scratch his back and he said " I don't have an itch " That was so funny. She scratched my arm so I would know what it felt like. It was like a pinch. She then asked Pravan to lay on his tummy and drew spots on his back. She made about 50 marks on his back and the poor kid cried out " OW ' " OW " about 50 times. He did not cry until he had to lay there for 30 min and then it started to itch. He was not allowed to scratch at all and it was heart wrenching to watch him cry. We read some books and talked about transformers to get his mind of the itching.
When the results came back it was Tom and Jerry syndrome. He is allergic to cats and mice, dust mites and several weeds and trees. The poor kid. No wonder he can go through a whole box of tissues in a day. Well now we know and we can fix it. Hopefully the prescription and several other measures will help. I will be spraying the house with dust mite spray as well as a cat dander spray and he now has a special allergy pillow and will also have a humidity gage in his room to ensure the humidity is below 40 % at any given time to prevent dust mites for breeding.
I did have several errands to run and I feel like I took too many chances with the kids today. At the shopping centre the shopping cart refused to move after a certain distance. It was literally stuck and I had a ton of groceries in it. The kids almost went flying out of the cart when it stalled. That was scary. My car was not too far away but we went kind of in the middle of the road. I dragged the cart as much as I could so we would not get hit by a car. I still had the dilemma of getting to the car. The easiest was to go get the car but I could not leave the kids alone. Plan B I approached a lady walking by and asked her to watch the kids while I got the car. She was a sweetheart and I was only gone a minute. Then at Costco we were having lunch and Priyasha had to pee. Yes another pee moment. What was I to do. I asked Pravan to stay put and not talk to anybody. I ran to the bathroom and when I returned Pravan was still there. The lady across from him told me that he was a good boy and did not even talk to her when spoke to him. PROUD MOM MOMENT!!! I was relieved but then he needed to go and he did not need to 2 min earlier. I pointed to where the bathroom was and he went all by himself. He ran all the way there and all the way back. It was a zoo in the store and I was impressed he did not run into any one or hurt himself.
Well it was an eventful day that will come to with a reward of brownies and raspberries. If you have not tried it give it try. The combination is to die for and if you a sweeter treat why not add ice cream. Bake brownies, cut into bite size squares, add raspberries and blue berries. Stir well. Serve with ice cream. Mmmhhhh ! GOOD
