shadowkatt went back for allergy testing today, and made it through without anaphylaxis this time. Yay! She took steroids for three days beforehand to prevent that, as well as having EMLA cream slathered on her arms an hour beforehand to numb them a bit.
Now she looks like an obsessive-compulsive heroin addict.
She isn’t allergic to anything on the food list, so that’s a plus. She was allergic to just about all the molds; ragweed; johnson grass; willow, birch, red maple, and sweet gum trees; dust mites, and cat dander.
So it’s allergen barriers, air cleaners, more decluttering, and weekly baths for the cat. manhattan, I thought of you while looking through the catalog of allergy control products they sent home with the girl.
