Stop topical steroid abuse!

We are making plans!!

here is kline's eczema pre-steroids!  what was i thinking , you can just see a tiny bit under his chin, elbow knees...seems like nothing now, but then it seemed terrible!  If we only knew!!!!!


Kline and I were chatting while he was in the 11th hour of his bath, and I asked him what he wanted to do when he got better.

He said,

" I want to go to the roar park!". Which means the local truckee park that has dinosaurs to climb on, hence the roar! We went there all the time with our friends and miss it so much!

And I said,
"ok, what else do you want to do when you get better?"

He said,

"I want to go to a restaurant and You bring my food!"

Let me explain, Kline has had severe antiphalactic food allergies since birth( to dairy, eggs and all nuts), so when ever we go any where I pack  his safe food. Just going to a restaurant and eating their ketchup is a treat for Kline.  So sweet and sad!  Most kids get to go eat where ever they want....no one worries about whether they have their epi pen or if he may pick up a peanut at the park.  What a life it would be to have no worried about healthy food that could kill my baby.

So, I guess when he feels better, we will be at a restaurant but unfortunately I will still have to cook! ;-) a mother's work is never done!

kline update, we welcome week 16 off steroids!
he is still flaring but seems to have some good moments!  the elderberry syrup doesn't seem to working as well, not sure if we have to up the dose??? his soars that he has had for months and months are looking better as of now, could change at any time though. I am not getting my hopes up about anything!  I hope the next month will bring a lot more healing and rest!!! and hopefully a little fun too!  ps. I can not get this kid to eat anything healthy, so frustrating!!!
