After having a "virus" with symptoms similar to on-going allergies since November, we have finally pushed her primary care doctor hard enough to convince them to put some pressure on the allergist and move her appointment up. We were originally scheduled for after Valentine's Day, then the 7th of February and then, yesterday, I was informed that we have been switched to a different doctor and will see him/her (not sure which) on Friday. There is supposedly a huge packet of forms coming for me to fill out before this visit. Cara also can't have any medications other than Mortin beforehand. Something about no antihistamines, which I thought you couldn't give to children her age? Hopefully, an end is in sight for Cara's suffering and she'll be able to sleep peacefully at night and give our vaporizer a break. The poor girl coughs a lot and seems to have an endless supply of nose goo. If she has to endure an allergy panel to find out the cause of her misery, it will be worth it. I'm just wondering how my 18 month old will survive a 2-3 hour appointment? How will I for that matter?
