Adventures in Allergies

For the past two years, we've been battling Olive's increasing attempts to scratch off her lip. The vet has come to the conclusion that it's allergy-related but we couldn't find enough of a pattern to make any specific connections. So last week, we took her to a specialist to get allergy tested.

Turns out, she is allergic to many things. Specially, grasses (june, timothy and bahia), molds (penicillin and aspergillus), weeds (marshelder, careless, sage, Russian thistle, English plantain), trees (elm, oak and boxelder), as well as staph, fleas, and house dust mites.


So yesterday, we started a new thing. Allergy shots.

Adventures in Allergies

The dermatologist says that it will take anywhere from three months to a year for the results to show, but from now until forever Dan and I will be giving Olive allergy shots every other week (though the first eight weeks she gets weekly shots). Hopefully this will allow Olive to retain her lip!

It's That Time of Year...

DFW FiberFest!

Dan and I went last weekend and yes, we got yarn.

Must Stash Modern Tumbleweed Yarn Passion Fruit
Tumbleweed Yarn Candy Necklace Must Stash Polka Dot Afro Circus
Must Stash Wish You were Here Tumbleweed Yarn Kermit Lazy Cat Endurance

We were much better behaved than in past years, which is good because there are no unused shelves in my yarn cabinet that my yarn can expand to anymore. I still have room, but really, I gotta knit faster!

By the way, the bottom row is Dan's part of the haul. I think he's as addicted to me knitting socks as I am!
