Braden and Latex....



So I learned that Braden is allergic to latex or at least to latex gloves....
I got a call from his pre-school teacher that he was swelling up a little and I might need to take him to the doctor. What started out as a little swelling on his arm, by the time I got there was on both arms. By the time I got him to the doctor it was all over his arms, legs, and bum. At first we weren't sure what this was, but his teacher said the only thing different today is she was using different gloves when changing diapers...that explains the location of all the swelling it was exactly where she would have touched while changing him and lifting him down from the changing table. Luckily we figured it our right away and I took him straight to the doc....where he got a steroid shot which worked quite quickly. Before the shot Braden didn't even seem to care that he had giant welts all over him. He did not love the shot. I tried photographing this but he wasn't holding still. But it was like massive red and white welts everywhere. Fortunately he didn't digest any of this or we would have had way bigger problems like not breathing. Brian was in Twin Falls when this happened so that was my main reason in getting a pic to show him. It looked a lot worse than this photo shows because they were all puffy. So now I just need to keep benadryl around.
