A Visit From Splinter.

For f*cks sake I am never touching anything with milk ever again. I am so miserable. It takes forever to get out of my system. WHY! The charcoal does help the immediate gas bubbles and cramps, but I still feel awful. I’ve still pooped 80234 times in the past two days. I’m relieved to know it’s milk though. I mean it’s obvious, the same thing happens each time I stupidly try to eat it. Two hours after eating it I feel...

Activated Charcoal for Indigestion.

Activated charcoal is my new favorite thing ever. I’ve just used it once, so scientifically I can’t say for sure it wasn’t a fluke, but… I still had gas and cramps yesterday from stupidly eating milk on Monday. It was like my belly just could not recover. Very annoying and uncomfortable, not to mention stinky farts are no good when living around other human beings. (Thank goodness I have three dogs I could blame it on…) The activated charcoal came in the...

Ada’s Food Allergies.

On Thursday Ada had her allergist appointment. For the past few months her she’s been crying day and night that her stomach hurts so badly and she’s had tons of gas. At first I thought it was because we let her try a few things with milk every now and then. She’s allergic to milk! She was also getting migraines several times a week. Totally not normal in a four year old! It broke my heart to see her in so...

Dairy is the culprit.

After about a week of strictly dairy free I cheated. My sister’s birthday cake on Sunday night had icing made with milk. I also ate a few cookies made with milk that Tyler brought home, and some artificially flavored popcorn that had whey at the bottom of the ingredient list. Yeah, fail. Shush. I felt fine on Monday morning. Then Monday night I had cramps all night long and a horrible back ache. My nose wouldn’t stop running, which could be...

Allergy Testing Results & Pictures.

The allergy testing for Ada yesterday afternoon wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. When Rosie had it done at age four she cried and sobbed through the pricks. Ada on the other hand…laughed.  Why am I not surprised?  Typical Ada. (Ada also loves the finger prick for iron testing because she gets to see her “real blood!” and she gets a bandaid.) We also go to weigh and measure her, which hasn’t been done in awhile.  She...

Surprise Birthday Present! 3

Surprise Birthday Present!

Today is my birthday.  I’m now the ripe old age of 26. To be honest it wasn’t a very great birthday.  The girls have been sick with a cold and Ada hasn’t slept more than two hours in the past three days. I am totally exhausted, like to the point of being non-functional. When I went out to check on our chicks this morning something had eaten the skin off of the head of one chick.  The poor little thing was still alive,...

Food Allergies & An Afternoon with Friends.

Note: The first half of the entry (the writing) is about Ada’s stomach virus, and poop vs. my food allergies.  If you’re eating or that offends you, you may want to skip to the cute kid pictures below.   Ada had her first stomach virus on Wednesday. She woke up at 5 in the morning and burped then choked a little, and spewed.  Thankfully it was all breastmilk, but still. She threw up all morning and all afternoon.  It was so...
