My poor little Leopard baby!


So, my Sydnee decided that she need to try about 5 cashews and this is what happened! It happened about a month a go. I was browsing my pictures and thought that this would make a good post. It took us a week straight on benedryl to get all the hives to clear up. Isn't this just soo sad? She kept pointing to herself and saying "Owie owie." So, she is the third one of my children that is allergic to nuts. She, by far, has had the worst reaction. Nuts aren't too bad to stay away from. We really don't have them around. Except during Christmas when I do my chocolates.That is how we found out that Jorden was allergic to nuts too. He had a small bit of a pecan and broke out into hives as well. So far, Brahnson and Tori are okay with them. The rest of them are okay if they don't eat the actual nut. If the label says that it was manufactured on a plant that uses nuts then they are okay. If they do slip up and have a reaction, Benedryl has taken care of them so far.

Poor little thing! Lydia is allergic to pennecillin and besides the hives, her face got all swollen like she was a very chubby kid! I'm glad Sydney is okay.

Barbi! This is Nancy (used to be Allred) here. I saw your recipe thing on FB and thought I better check it out. I totally need to start doing weekly menus. It is such a pain to get motivated and think of something at 5:00 pm! Anyway, I had to comment here because seeing your poor little hive baby made me so sad!! Oh I am sorry!
