More family rantings

Well, I have taken loads of photos of my new creations but still haven’t played around with them as family disasters have taken over AGAIN.  So thought i would bore you with a couple of details.

Martha is feeling a lot better on her two lots of medicine three times a day.  Her appetite has gone through the roof which is great as she was looking really skinny and she is just full of beans.  So what does her numb skull mother do???  Only give her a biscuit without reading the label and then have to watch her get covered in these horrid hives (imagine being stung at least 50 times by a nettle all at once).  She proceeded to scream and point into her mouth.  I ran the bath and called the doctor who said the screaming was a good thing at least she was breathing.  Give her piriton which i did.  BAthed her took her downstairs and spoke to my mum whilst looking at martha only to notice that she couldnt close her mouth and that her bottom lip was sticking out like Bubba in FOrest Gump.  I asked her to stick her tongue out – she couldnt.  I gave her a beaker to drink from and she couldnt get it in her mouth as it was all so swollen.

Piriton thankfully started to kick in and within 10 minutes of the swelling she was up asking for a dvd to be put on.  the hives however left their mark for about 24 hours.

The result – definitely allergic to hazelnuts.  we now have 2 epi pens, oral steroids and a blood test booked.

But she is in a bed now as the health visitor thought it may help to solve all her sleep problems (believe me there is another 10 posts on that alone) and do you know what she is asleep and things are looking good. (well apart from the fact i accidently overdosed her medicine slightly which led to a call to nhs direct and lots of calculations about body weight etc etc)

anyway look here is one photo of the bag i made for my friend liz.  the photo was taken on Marthas little rocking chair as i had only just finished it and was about to take it to the pub to give to her.  Basically i had ten minutes to take the photo and it was dark

  1. Poor you – hope she’s bouncing around in the morning.

  2. I was very glad to hear that she is generally better. But you poor dears, never a quiet minute.

    The sentence “the doctor who said the screaming was a good thing at least she was breathing” had me shuddering a bit. I hope that she’ll be feeling better soon. And you too.

    And how you manage to sew in the midst of all that I don’t know (but then it’s probably the one thing that keeps you sane), the bag looks great.

  3. Oh no! I’m glad you at least have an answer – which is better than just not knowing what the problem is or what to do. I’m sure it won’t be the first time something goes wrong you’ll need time to adjust – you just need to know how to prevent these things happening. Poor Martha and poor you!
