More Allergies?

As is well known, Henry has allergies to bananas, dairy, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts, and when he was very young was sensitive to salicylates, azo dyes, and some aspect of screen printed ink on many of my T-shirts. He … Continue reading

Allergy Visit

So yesterday was Henry’s annula allergy appointment, which turned out a bit unexpected, as the doctor decided not to retest him this year. He’d like to wait until next year, at which point he’ll be to the point of maybe … Continue reading

Tummy Flora and MS?

This kind of thing makes a lot of sense and I’ve been seeing more and more of it. Probably some of it also queued with old links I never blogged… Anyway, MS is of particular interest, given that my sister … Continue reading

Drugs and Change

Recently I got an ear infection. Not shocking, given my childhood propensity for them and the fact that I’ve been almost continuously sick since Sadie started kindergarten in September, culminating with and resuming after a quick bout of flu and … Continue reading

Link Dump 2

Continued from and explained in Link Dump 1. Schoolhouse Barack Eggless batter for deep fried shrimp (works nicely for chicken, came out just like Chinese chicken fingers but that Henry can eat, moved from this to lighter tempura style) It’s … Continue reading

Cast Off

Monday Sadie got her walking cast off, got still more X-rays, and was allowed to leave cast-free. Yay! She faces 10 days of taking it easier than normal – walking on even surfaces, no roughhousing, nothing athletic, going in a … Continue reading

And We Mean It!

[I originally started this post a week ago last Monday, July 12, got interrupted, never finished and posted it, and so here it is. Not bothering to edit the timeframe up to the point I'll indicate I am adding to … Continue reading

One More Day!

Or so I hope! Tomorrow morning I take Sadie to get her cast off and get X-rays. Presumably that will be it, and we will return home triumphantly cast-free after three weeks. Via some errands. And a trip by my … Continue reading

Sadie’s Leg, Part 2

Just a followup, since I didn’t post what happened subsequently yesterday. We saw the same orthopedic guy Sadie once saw to have her walk/gait evaluated on doctor’s concern. He looked at the X-rays and pointed out the spot, which is … Continue reading

Broken Leg

Last night just after 8:00 I was trying to coax Henry to get into a pullup for the night, while Sadie and then he started, per usual, jumping on the bed like maniacs. All of a sudden I hear a … Continue reading

AWOL and the Tooth Fairy

Poor Sadie. A couple days ago, she lost a lower front tooth. I mean, lost it, when it fell out in an unknown place, time and manner. She had been telling me it was loose, had been excited, and I’d … Continue reading

Teeth and Acid and Gas, Oh My

Due to genetics compounded by parenting errors and circumstance, all three kids require a mouth full of dentistry under general anesthesia to fix their teeth, relieve pain mainly in Valerie’s case, and set them up to get through to their … Continue reading

Dead Zone

One problem we’ve had lately is exactly this dead zone, which you can see as a sharp drop in the 30s before the steadier line upward. You have to click the chart to see a bigger version. And basically if … Continue reading

Oops

He may not be allergic to strawberries, but man is Henry allergic to something in a big way. We spent much of the afternoon and evening with my mother and grandmother. Late in the day, my mother doled out M&M’s, … Continue reading

Strawberries

For the record and any who might care to know, given his history, Henry not only seems unambiguously not allergic to strawberries, but also has decided he likes them a lot. He’d mostly snubbed them previously. That seemed significant, given … Continue reading

Doctor

Today I had my visit to the doctor to have sutures removed, from where I had a mole and skin tag removed. Those were benign. He’d like to remove more skin tags, so said to remind him next visit. Seems … Continue reading

I’d Prefer to Have Kept My Integrity
