It's Baaack

All the wheezing. All the inhaler uses. All the allergies. It's all back. I had to call T2's allergist this morning and I'm still waiting on a call back. I'm not sure what to do. The poor kid has used his inhaler more than allowed and he still can't breathe. And starting today he can't even have Benedryl. This is horrible. This allergy testing better be worth it. When I called earlier, I asked if it was true that the appointment on Thursday would be three hours and they said that it would. I don't understand that. Everyone else I've talked to, when they went, it only took about an hour and a half. Again, I hope this is worth it. I'm tempted to call the health food store that we go to a lot and ask the lady who owns it about muscle testing. I talked to her briefly about it before and thought that we may do that but never got around to it. I just don't want my son on medication for the rest of his life. Although I will say that once he was done with the Prednisone and on Claritin, he was feeling great and hardly using his inhaler at all. I hate not knowing what to do! I guess I'll see what they have to say when they call back, and we'll go from there.

It's a nice 72 degrees here today. I only have 3 daycare kids today, so that's been easy. The ones I have play good together and that's always a nice way to start out the week.

Tonight after work we're going to look at the big white "plantation" house. Mr. R's realtor gave him the code and faxed him something that said we could go in. I'm leery to take T2 because there's a lot of mold in the basement. Maybe we just won't go down there. We found out that the guy who built the house back in the early 1900's was a riverboat captain. The paperwork says he built the inside to look like a riverboat casino. I can't wait to see it. I'm not getting my hopes up. There's quite a few bids and it seems like they've given the current bidder an extended amount of time to get financing. Some banks won't finance the house because of the mold, but can be easily fixed so I'm not sure what the problem is.

We didn't do much over the weekend. I did lots of laundry and cleaning, did some shopping at Kohl's, played a lot of catch with T2 in the backyard, helped my mom get some things ready to move, and just hung out and tried to relax. We bought the kids "Happily Never After", it was cute. Tomorrow I want to get "Because I Said So".

Guess I'll go for now. Have a great Monday!
