Last week my grandson Jonas, had his first and probably last peanut butter sandwich. Within minutes he broke out in welts and swelling all over his face and arms. Amy said it was so scary, and they made a mad dash to the store to get some Benedryl.
Jonas had allergy blood work the next day...Can you believe he didn't even cry when he was poked?
Yesterday morning Amy got the call saying he is allergic to DOGS, CATS, and PEANUTS.
I heard he looked 20 times worse an hour before these pictures were taken. (over an hour after the Benedryl.)
So I had Miss Téa, while Amy took Jonas in for more testing this morning.
Amy said it was not easy holding him still for 15 minutes while the Dr tested him, but he never did cry. I thought that was pretty incredible...especially as opinionated as Jonas can be.
Maybe he just enjoyed having Mommy all to himself.
So, the allergy Dr said they need to get rid of all peanuts. No more PB&Js for his 6 siblings...at least not at home.
Everywhere Jonas goes, so goes his Epi-pen, that he was given today.
It will administer epinephrine should his airways get in trouble.
He didn't react as badly to dogs, so for now, Boston gets to stay!
And thankfully Jonas can continue enjoying his usual good life.
