Chili, Treatments, Wrestling, Hives (not a cure for wrestling related skin conditions)
Posted Feb 19 2010 9:15am
This post is a mish mash of sorts and as I referred to in parenthesis above I am not going to tell you how to use chili as a treatment for wrestling related hives.
First of all, Nathan has unexplainable hives. He had them since Wednesday and I have not an inkling where they came from. No new detergents. No new foods. I am stumped. He better not be developing an allergy to butter!
He hasn't complained at all but I am annoyed and worried because I would like to know where they came from. I am really worried that they may begin to affect his breathing. His pediatrician, when we were in Thursday morning for his Synagis shot (RSV), said keep giving him Benadryl for 4 days. If that doesn't do the trick then he will prescribe an oral steroid.
So that is exactly what we have been doing. Hive...Benadryl...more hives...more Benadryl.
We made the drive down to Lexington, VA yesterday to spend the weekend with Jay's brother and sister in law. The drive was much more tolerable this time with the addition of the portable DVD player. Literally a lifesaver.
With mommy and daddy tired from the 7 hour drive, Aunt Megan offered to lend a hand at treatments.
She was a pro! And now I think I will take her up on the offer of taking care of Nathan for a week in August when I am ready to pop.
Isn't she the bestest? She also had a huge pot of her vegetarian chili waiting for us when we arrived last night. Unfortunately, I can't eat at night and expect it to stay down so I had my serving today for lunch.
This is seriously my favorite chili and it may or may not be the reason I drove 7 hours to Virginia. I am going to try and get the recipe out of her so I can share. Delicious!
