club. No mom wants to be in the “sick kids” club.
As of today.
16- the number of foods she tested positive for on allergy tests.
7- the amount of times she’s injected herself with an epipen. (It hurts. Her thigh is covered in bruises. )
6- the number of daily prescription medications she’s currently taking.
3- the number of times her school has called 911 for her.
2-3 the amount of times I generally speak to her doctor each week.
1 the number of times she was given epinephrine in the allergy department.
I hold it together and stay strong when she’s with me. But when I’m at home. And I see the school on my caller ID and they say she just took her epipen. Someone is on the phone with 911 right now, I lose it. I cry all the way to school.
