Allergies, asthma, and other afternoon adventures
Today we found out that David's nagging cough is indeed a mild asthma attack (we were suspicious that it was, but he'd gone so long without one that we hoped he'd outgrown it...sigh...). Abigail had skin-testing done for allergies as well as some bloodwork, and she was a trooper throughout...she did amazingly well considering all of the discomfort. We found out that Abigail is allergic to a few trees and to dogs. We are very thankful that she's not allergic to any foods or to cats...but we have yet to decide what this means for the dog!Having gotten fed up enough with my too-long-to-do-anything-with hair that I finally did something about it, I made a last-minute appointment to get it cut. For the kids, that meant some time to read their new library books, to people-watch, and to observe the cool tropical fish in the aquarium, but even all of those were outshone by the cool sink in the restroom.
