What a way to spend the 4th of July! *PIC*
Brady is THE strongest little boy I know. He spent all day today in the ER from an allergic reaction to peanuts. Brady is primarily fed through a feeding tube, but does eat baby food...definitely not peanuts though! He was sitting in my husband's lap this morning as Jeff (my husband) was eating crunchy peanut butter & apple slices for breakfast. His eyes almost immediately started to swell up, and within about 20 minutes both of his eyes were almost swollen shut! I immediately called his CF doctor in Virginia (as we are on vacation in Dallas) & he agreed that we should take him straight to the ER. It took us a few minutes to think about it and figure out what Brady could have been allergic to as he has no allergies and we were stumped at first. ER attending doctor confirmed that it was a reaction to a peanut allergy. He gave him steriods, Benedryl, and sent us home with a prescription for 5 days of steroids plus an epi-pen. We went through the training for an epi-pen with the pharmacist at the hospital. Just got home, and I'm exhausted! Ready for some BBQ!
