Poor Peanut

Our “first born” Peanut had a horrible allergic reaction last night. We aren’t quite sure what she got into, or licked, or eat but whatever it was it really messed her up. We were eating dinner and Zach looked down and said “PEANUT…whats wrong with your face??!!!!???” From my view she looked fine, so I didn’t know what he was talking about, he grabbed her and turned her around and her lips were HUGE! She looked like she had snuff in her lip. It was so hard at the beginning not to laugh b/c she was fine, it didn’t bother her at all, it’s just like her lips were huge…so being the bad parents we were we took a couple pics (I will post them later!) I know I know so mean..but she didn’t even look like our puppy with those poofy cheeks. Well we sat her beside us to make sure her swelling wasn’t getting worse, however all the sudden she started getting hives all over her, big mosquito bite looking bumps. (She had an allergic reactions a LONG time ago and our vet told us to give her ½ a Benadryl) Well we didn’t have any at the house, Zach ran to the store to get some while I washed her paws and face and lips (pretty much all of her) off with hot/soapy water. Just in case whatever she was allergic to was still on her skin…in the short period of time that Zach was gone she started getting these hives on her lips, nose, ears and even her pee pee…it was so sad…she was miserable. Zach got home and we gave her ½ of a Benadryl…we thought it would instantly knock her out, but now she was so uncomfortable and so swollen and itchy that she couldn’t get comfortable to sleep. I googled a lot online and I saw where can put a cold wash cloth on the swelling to help, so Zach and I covered her in cold wash cloths…around midnight she finally went to sleep…I couldn’t sleep b/c I was so scared her throat was going to swell shut before the meds kicked in, I checked her around 1:45ish and her cheeks and lips looks a lot better, and her hives had gone down drastically. This morning she was all better, she was red from itching and had a few red marks from her hives, but other than that she was back to her “normal” self.

I was so scared to leave her this morning and I can’t wait until 4 so I can jet home and check on her!!!! My poor baby has allergies :o(

{As for me, nothing new…I go get my progesterone level checked tomorrow but won’t know anything until Monday…just keep your fingers and toes crossed that God has great things in store for us this cycle!}
