Actually, no flu in this household, but we did need to go here...
(Children's Mercy South Hospital)
to have this done
on this little one.
Long story short, Benjamin continues to battle ear infections and shows several signs and symptoms of being allergy-prone. Our ENT agreed it was time to visit the allergist who in turn sent us to Children's Mercy South (hospital) for labs to be drawn.
I was a bit worried that Ben would not cooperate, but he was a trooper! Between his positive disposition and the phlebotomist's awesome technique, blood was drawn in short order with NO tears! Maybe now we will get some of the answers we've been looking for such as why a 2-year old boy would be lactose intolerant, break out in hives when eating tomato-based foods/sauces (and biter biscuits as a baby) and prone to so many ear infections. Wish us luck!
