A new health issue has introduced itself to our family over the past couple of weeks.
Olivia has started breaking out in hives.
The nurses prepared for Olivia to freak out when they had to draw blood. One nurse held Olivia's arm, the other got the needle ready, and they had me hold her legs and other arm. Olivia whined when they stuck the needle in, and then proceeded to talk about the Olivia cartoon and watch the blood as it came out of her arm. She was the biggest girl ever! The nurse gave her a coupon for a free pizza at Pizza Hut for being so good.
I had prepared for it to be a rough day for Sissy and told her we could go to Build-A-Bear if she was good. (I had a coupon for that too) And she was!
We are supposed to get the blood work results back this week. In the mean time, Olivia is on Zyrtec during the day and a prescription Benadryl before bed. The Zyrtec isn't working so I called the dr today and she will be on steroids for 5 days along with her regular meds. I hope we pinpoint what the culprit is soon.
