Allergy Update

After talking more with the allergist, we have some updated information on Squeaky. She has an appointment in September for a latex allergy patch test. We have to keep her off eggs and peanuts for one year and then she goes back for a challenge test. I'm not looking forward to either. Especially the challenges.

We recently found out that Squeaky has some interesting allergies - egg whites, peanut and possibly latex. It all started at a dentist appointment. The day after the appointment, Squeaky's face was covered in a horrible rash. The rash was in the smae place where the dental hygenist had her gloves. Because of this, we talked to our pediatrician and made an appointment with an allergist.

While she was at the allergist for the possible latex allergy, they decided to test for other allergies. The ones that came back positive were egg whites and peanuts. We have to keep both of those from her for one year. We decided just to remove both from the home.

Caging The Animals

Initially we had some reservations about it, but we've finally fenced in the back yard. We've had some problems with Blondie because she's a runner. She dashed for the street two times and that's all it took. We were on the phone with the fence builders. It's nice now to know that we can give more freedom to the kids and not worry about them getting out of the fence.


As you can see below, we've added some photos. We had to replace our camera with a new one. The old one had been dropped so many times the battery cover was having a hard time staying closed. The one we purchased uses a new memory card. It stores lots of images. It seems that we always have 2 months of images on the card before we take it out of the camera. That's the reason the images are old once we get them added here.

Time Slips Away

Over one month since we posted anything. How has time slipped away that fast? You would think as the kids get older that we would have more time, but that doesn't seem to be the case. At the end of the day when we might have some time to update the blog, we usually spend our time cleaning up after the kids. You just can't imagine how fast three can make a mess.
