LIVING

With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

Flu shots suck

Poor Charlie. He has not tested positive to eggs, however I have seen him get hives after licking a hard-boiled egg. Recently he has gotten an itchy mouth after eating a baked good with egg in it. So we try to avoid eggs. Last year Charlie had the flu shot. This was before any of his allergies we going crazy. So this year we thought it would be a good idea to do a skin prick test and make sure it’s safe for him. Since Gage and Nathan cannot get the flu shot we need to try to keep it out of the house. Gage typically ends up in the hospital from a cold so we don’t need anything worse.

Off to the allergist Charlie and I go. (I honestly just felt a wave of tired fill my body and don’t really want to finish this story. So……) 

Charlie had a very rough time. He is honestly terrified of needles – is there a phobia for that?  He hid under the chair, took 3 nurses and myself to get things done. I hate allergies. He did get the flu shot.

Sorry this blog ended like it did. I just couldn’t type the whole story, hurts my heart for Charlie.

I need a beer.
