The inside of his palm is as swollen as the outside and his hand is very tight to the touch. He doesn't complain and seems to carry on just fine. If it was a one time incident I wouldn't be too concerned but over the years it seems to be getting worse. Then last Tuesday he got out of bed and I freaked! His eye was swollen and I was pretty sure he was stung on the face. I figured it would go down and gave him a Benadryl... but the next morning it was worse!
Please don't think he's upset because of his eye... he's upset because his sister took off out the door for the bus without a hug and a kiss from him. So after getting him comfortable on the couch and snapping a picture to send to my Mom, I grabbed the phone and called my girlfriend at home who just happens to work at the clinic. She said she would squeeze Jevan in for an appointment that day. The doctor wrote out a prescription for an "eppie jr." pen, just in case this allergy gets any worse. We now have matching "eppie" pens in the house, Hubby has a senior version because he's allergic to certain nuts. I'm hoping we never have to use either one!
