Overwhelmed

That one word pretty much sums up how I'm feeling most of the time right now :( It seemed like everything came to a head last week, and it didn't help that Mark was out of town most of the week (and got snowed in for an extra day in Cleveland).

It's really a lot of small stuff, but together, they seem pretty overwhelming. I just typed out my saga with painting the living room only to have it be erased, so you'll just have to trust me that it hasn't been the most fun here recently.

However, the current issue may not be that small after all. Michelle had a pretty decent allergic reaction to walnuts yesterday afternoon, so we're meeting with a specialist on Wednesday morning to see where we go from here. She's completely fine with peanuts/peanut butter, but the only unusual thing she had yesterday was a banana nut muffin, so we're pretty sure the walnuts caused the reaction. I was on the phone with a nurse off and on yesterday, and she responded well to the Benadryl, so we didn't have to take her to urgent care or the ER. I'm praying that it's nothing too severe and that it won't impact her life as much as it has for other kids we know.

Sorry this is such a rambly post, but it's the best I can do right now :(

How scary! Praying that she recovers fully and you are given the tools needed to help her with this health concern.
