About Me


Name: Elleoz

From: Fort Mill, South Carolina, United States

I am 32 years old and have been married for 6 years. I had two children under 2 (hence the blog name), but now they are actually 3 and 2. Maybe it is time to change the blog name? Drama Queen is 3 and Wildman is 2 (15 months apart to be exact). I have a Bachelor's Degree on Criminal Justice from Applachian State University (Go Apps!) and have been at my current place of employment for going on 7 years.

    What I Am Listening To

    Mother's Guilt (Take Two)
    I feel like the worst Mommy in the whole world. Wild Man is having a terrible time with his allergies. I have written about his problems before (I think). Several weeks ago when the weather started to turn nice I opened the windows. Big mistake. Big. All the pollen triggered a allergy/asthma attack for my little guy. Once I figured out what was going on I closed the windows, opened the windows, and took him to the doctor. [A little background here: Last year about this time he was diagnosed with Reactive Airway Disease (allergy induced asthma) so I was waiting with baited breath to see if it would start up again this year. Of course it did, and with a vengence.

    Anyway, Dr P. prescribed Josh Singular and Zyrtec. It has been a godsend for the most part. Well, except for when every drugstore in town ran out then it was like starting all over again. At his last appointment, Dr. P set up an appointment with the allergist to have him specific allergy tested (remember when they told me it couldn't be done until he was 5?!?). They made the appointment for two weeks from then (yay!) but failed to tell me that he had to be anti-histamine (no Zyrtec) for 7 days prior to the test, so...it was rescheduled for this coming Monday.

    Sunday was his last night with the Zyrtec. All I can say is last night was hell. He was up all night long coughing his little lungs out. Nothing helped. I tried sleeping with him in his bed, on the couch, in bed with Daddy, sitting up in the recliner. Nothing. Nada. The Benedryl didn't even phase him. AM ended up giving him a breathing treatment and that seemed to help a bit. I think we all got maybe 3 hours of sleep all combined. And all I could think about last night and today was how is he (and us) supposed to deal with this for another 6 days? Without even Benadryl starting Friday? All I could think about was that I was torturing my baby needlessly. What a time to try to get an allergy test done right?

    I have been in turmoil all day and broke down and called the Allergist's office this afternoon. I spoke to a really nice nurse (thanks nice nurse for listening to me go on and on) who told me to put him back on the Zyrtec immediately so that he doesn't get worse. So now, I have to take him to the allergist on Monday to get him established as a patient and get him started on Flovent or something similar so that we can evaluate the best course of action and reschedule the allergy test. They said that we can either wean him off the Zyrtec for the test or do the testing via blood instead of skin. Bottom line is his health, and he can't take too many nights like last night.

    So, I am grateful that we can get him back to a halfway normal self but also sad and frustrated that we still won't know what exactly is going on or what his triggers are. I have done pretty much everything short of getting rid of the dog to help ease his sypmtoms at home (covered the mattresses and new pillows, air purifier with new filter, dusted and vacuumed, no stuffed animals, etc)and I am hoping and praying that Max doesn't have ot go. I have started bathing him weekly as well to try to cut down the dander and he doens't really go in WM's room. Only time will tell as far as Max goes.

    Everyone keep your fingers crossed and say a little prayer ok? Everyone in the Lo2U2 needs a little sleep tonight.
