Ty's allery/asthma appt

WE HAD TY'S FIRST ALLERGY/ASTHMA APPT YESTERDAY WITH DR. AMAR. TY WAS SUCH A BIG BOY, HE IS ALWAYS SO GOOD WHEN IT COMES TO DOC APPTS (THANK GOODNESS) WE GOT THERE AT 1:45 AND HAD TO FILL OUT ALL KINDS OF PAPER WORK, THEN THEY CALLED US BACK AND HAD LIKE A MILLION QUESTIONS TO ASK. THE DOC CAME IN AFTER THAT AND TALKED TO US FOR A LITTLE WHILE AND THEN THEY SENT US OVER TO GET THE ALLERGY SKIN TEST DONE. WOW!! THEY TOLD ME THEY WOULD BE PRICKING HIM 45 TIMES (YES 45) I WAS LIKE OK. SO THEY NUMBERED HIS BACK WITH A PEN 1-45. TY THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY BC HE IS SO TICKLISH. THE GUY DOING IT WAS GREAT AND VERY SNAPPY. HE STARTED DOING THE PRICKS AND TY WAS LAUGHING AT FIRST AND DID GREAT BUT TOWARDS THE END I THINK HE REALIZED, HEY THIS GUY IS POKING ME, SO HE WHINED FOR JUST A MIN AND HE WAS FINE. THEY SET THE TIMER FOR 15 MINS AND THEN IF IN THAT 15 MINS ANY OF THE SPOTS GET A RED BUMP OR MARK THEN THERE IS AN ALLERGY TO THAT SUBSTANCE. SO AFTER OUR 15 MINS WE HAD SEVERAL MARKS, SOME REALLY LARGE. THEY WILL BE SENDING ME A VERY DETAILED LIST IN THEM MAIL ABOUT EVERYTIHNG. BUT WE KNOW THAT HE DOES NOT HAVE SEASONAL ALLERGIES, BUT YEAR AROUND ALLERGIES (WHICH SUCKS) SO BC OF THE FACT THAT HE HAS ASTHMA SYMPTOMS TOO HE STARTED HIM ON SINGULAIR ONCE A DAY AND THEN ALBUTEROL IF HE HAS TROUBLE BREATHING. BY THE TIME WE LEFT IT WAS 4 O'CLOCK YUK. WE GO BACK IN 2 WEEKS FOR MORE TESTING. I HOPE THIS MEDICINE HELPS HIM AND THAT WE HAVE SOLVED THIS MYSTERY WE HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH FOR OVER 2 YRS NOW. HERE ARE SOME PICS FROM HIS APPT

This makes me so sad...I had to go through this when I was in highschool and it was miserable for myself, I can't imagine your sweet little one having to go through it :( Poor thing...
