Darn It!!!

Emily's allergies are getting bad again. We upped her Zyrtec to the max and she is still on Singulair. I have felt so sorry for her the last 2 nights. She is getting to the point where she can't sleep well because she is sneezing and sniffing too much. How long can a kid take Benadryl every night?

The allergist wanted to see her by October. If she continues on, I'm probably going to have to take her in sooner. The allergist said our next step is allergy shots. This is my little tantrum -- Nonononononono @#$%#$#@@!!!!!!!!!!

Alright. Thanks for letting me vent. Onwards we go.

I really feel for you guys. Environmental allergies suck on a daily basis. Allergy shots might help, though they would be an inconvenience - might be a way to get her off so many meds in the long term.
