Awhile back Colby started getting itchy. alot. like all over. Under his nose, his arms his legs, his head, in between his fingers. He was just constantly itching, itching, itching. But he didn't have a rash, or bumps or anything that could show us why he was itching. So we went back to the doctor, who then referred us to an allergist. We met with the allergist, my shy, nervous boy slept through the whole consult (that is his defense mechanism if you'll remember). The allergist requested some lab work and also set up an appointment for skin testing. OY. He did calm my mommy fears and showed me the tool they'd use for the testing. No needles. Just some spiky type things. Still no fun but at least it wasn't the needles. So he had to go off the antihistamines he was already taking and come back the day after Christmas. Oh and the labwork too. Instead of taking him to the meanies at the local lab, we opted to take him to our family vampire. Auntie, my sister. He was really scared but afterwards said that he didn't really feel the needle and he thought it was really cool to watch his blood go through the tube. Thanks Auntie!!!
