Ella's Follow-up

Well another day....so last night we saw Dr.Muniz (allergist) he doesnt think its medication.So we think Ella had a grass allergy from Dad mowing Monday night,also she has grass allergens from foods like tomato,watermelon,apples...etc. Everything my little girls loves tomatos from her Papi's garden.So we will stop eating these as of today and see if it goes away.
No hives this morning so that's a good sign.Update later in the week.

Update after Dr.Brenner

Well we saw our cardiologist yesterday.All is well with her heart she sounds great,her liver is just a little bit swollen but he didnt seem concerned.Yesterday after lunch at Nani's Ella once again broke out in hives after eating a slice of tomato and a ham sandwich with multi grain bread.Both of these normal things she has always eaten.I mean big hives too!So we decided after he saw her to stop all meds and get her to a pediatric allergist right away.
Well in doctor terms anyway...so we go Monday to see Dr.Muniz.Atleast the lips are better now we will work on the hives and see what the weekend brings.Love to all..

Sleepless in Frederick

This morning Ella woke up with swollen eyes, we really did not think much of it at first...As the day moved on Ella was not really acting like herself, she had no desire to swim in the pool with everyone and she had hives all over. She did as for some yogurt so we gave her some, my guess is not that the yogurt cause this reaction but something sure did.


We immediately rushed to the Dr.'s office and spoke to Dr. Brenner many times, needless to say I was in tears....We still do not know what has cause such a reaction I guess it could be alot of different things. I would imagine that I am going to be spending my night making sure my baby is still breathing.... Who needs sleep I gave that up with motherhood right????
