Wordish Wednesday: Epi Pen

It's been a slow week in pictures, forgive me. Rain doesn't help and the busy schedule of the holidays coming up and well, I could keep making excuses. I really just haven't picked up my camera (but my iPhone is a different story!)... anyways...

I did take this lovely shot of a new thing around our house. Abbie's Epi Pen.

Yes, she is "officially" allergic to peanuts. She had her allergy testing done last week and the peanut testing spot swelled up immediately. She has to go back next month for a little more testing on different tree nuts - almonds, cashews, etc.

It's a little scary and a little relieving at the same time? I mean.. I hope we NEVER EVER EVER have to use this thing. That would be very scary. But, I'm relieved to know now what has caused her breaking out into hives and scary the crap out of me once & for all.

I've been reading up on peanut allergies. Not so bad. After everything she went through to come into this world & to be a part of ours, this is nothing we can't handle! ♥

hello there.. I just searched the web for epipen and came to your blog.. I hope you still haven't used it for your daughter coz it is the scariest thing in the world. It happened to me about 3 nights ago and I wouldn't want anyone to have that feeling I had. Anyway happy new year to you and I actually just started my own blog as well and it would be nice to follow each other. I'm a newbie mommy blogger :)
