Last night we took EJ to our local LIJ hospital because she was having an allergic reaction. After dinner, we noticed that EJ was coughing and developed a wheeze while breathing. I forgot to write about this, but EJ had an allergic reaction to eggs on Easter, so this was her second reaction. We looked at the jar that we fed her and it contained wheat and soy, which meant she has a soy allergy because she’s never reacted to the various types of bread we feed her.
So we immediately gave EJ benedryl and walked two blocks to LIJ. By the time she saw a doctor, the medicine had kicked in and EJ’s breathing had improved, but the doctor gave her steroids and another dose of benedryl just to be safe. We were home in 2.5 hours and thankful that she’s okay, but we’re disappointed that EJ now has to suffer through not one, but two food allergies.
But the Lord is still good.
