The Allergist.

Well, it may have taken two business days between the referral from A's pediatrician and the admin at the allergist's office trying to find us an appointment, but we are officially in with the pediatric allergist....for November 30. Ugh. There goes my dream of seeing the doctor this week and getting this squared away. Whatever that even entails.

Anyway, we're lucky to have gotten that one, because it was the ONLY appointment available in 2010, and he's the ONLY doctor that will see babies this young. Geeeeeez. For a second there I thought I lived in rural Kansas, not a booming metropolis capital with a focus on pediatric medicine. Hmmmm...

OK, enough with the sarcasm and angst, I really and truly am thankful for this doctor seeing us and for what I hope is the beginning of the end of Ava's allergies, but I am definitely nervous!

Anyone that's had allergy testing and specifically whose baby has - any tips/pointers? Advice on what to expect? This is new territory to me :)

Thanks, ladies! Happy Friday!


  1. I can't offer any tips or pointers, but I do wish you both the best of luck! I hope the doc is able to pinpoint the problem and fix it so you and Ava can both get some much needed relief!

  2. I'm sorry you have to wait so long, but I don't think the appt. itself will be too bad. It's no fun to get blood drawn, especially for a baby, but hopefully that's all they'll have to do. I hope you get some answers!
