Still waiting to find out more

Well, Jeremiah's test results returned and everything was negative, so we have no idea what is going on with him. For right now they've decided he has to have an inhaler and an epi pen with him at all times. So now we have five epi pens. The school has one, we have one at home, I have one, Josh has one, and Jeremiah has one in his jacket pocket. We're going to have to get him a fanny pack or something to carry that and his inhaler around in in the summer. I think Josh just keeps his in his car. Mine's in my purse, where I also carry those benadryl strips. Something that was also recommended that we carry as well. Josh has some of those as well. They come with a handy little container to carry them around in. Of course Jeremiah has the only inhaler. He's had to use that a few times since our incedent on Tuesday. Also I have a tester to test his respirations. I have to take three breathing measurements every morning and write those down for the doctor. He didn't do so well on one of them this morning. I hope the numbers are helpful. I hope we can figure this out soon. He has an appointment with our regular doctor on Thursday and in a couple of months they plan on getting him in to see an allergy specialist in Spokane, Washington. Please pray that we find out soon what is going on with our son, so we know what to avoid and can find our new normal and have a good family routine again soon.

  1. Okay, so I didn't see my other post titled "No Allergies?" on there and thought it didn't publish for some reason, so some of this information was repeated from last time. Just trying to keep you all updated as much as possible.
