Well it has been a busy few days over at Nolie’s Place. I am sure Big Brother will be happy for a break.
A few years ago he tested positive for an allergy to eggs. It was only a minor allergy but I could not get this kid to eat eggs once I was comfortable trying them out. I finally had enough arguing and told him we would get him tested again. Yesterday we were off to the allergist for testing. Lucky for us the test came out saying he has ZERO egg allergy. The allergist made a point of telling him he was no longer allergic and he needs to eat eggs so he can grow big and strong.
While we were waiting on the results from his allergy test they also checked him out for asthma. I have asthma and when they boys are sick they have wheezing. We have an inhaler to give them when they are sick. Kids can not be tested until they are 5 years old so now that Big Brother is 6 we finally were able to get it done. That test came back perfect as well. No breathing concerns. Just keep giving him the inhaler as needed when sick. WOOHOO!!!Image courtesy of qualitystockphotos.com
Last but not least we today were off to Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Which may I add is a WONDERFUL hospital and I am so happy to have it as part of our community. A few months ago Big Brother was complaining that his private parts were hurting him. We brought him to the doctor where we found out their was some scarring and he may need to be circumcised. I broke down in tears in the doctors office. (No this is not a debate on circumcision, to each their own). I was VERY happy to find out circumcision is not the first course of action. Instead we are to apply a cream twice a day every day for the next 8 weeks. The hope is that this cream will loosen the skin and no other action will need to be taken. Cross your fingers for us. I did ask how come he had scarring and he said it is possible he may have pulled back the skin before it was ready or someone else while changing his diapers. Due to the minimal scarring I am thinking it was Big Brother. I refuse to think that someone else may have done it when I have told EVERYONE do NOT pull the skin back.
So all in all the past 48 hours have brought good news from the doctors front. I am sure Big Brother will be happy to NOT see another doctor though anytime soon.
