Weekend Recap w/ an ER visit!

Wow, what a weekend! I am not sure where to start. Friday night Logan had another 8pm baseball game and they WON!! First win of the season and it was a good one. Then they had a make up game Saturday morning in the rain. That game was not so good. I think the rain and cold got the best of them and they just kinda gave up.

We came home after that and made lunch but before lunch I was eating some cashews and Abby asked to try some. I gave her a small piece and she liked it so I gave her a whole one. I put them away and started making their lunch. About 10 mins later Abby started to complain her throat and stomach hurt. I figured she was just tired so I sent her up to get in her PJ's and Matt took some medicine up there to her and when he got to her room her eyes were red and swollen. He brought her downstairs and showed me. We thought for a few seconds about what she had eaten. It took maybe a minute and it hit me that she ate that ONE cashew. I, of course, started freaking out. I tell Matt we need to call 9-11 but he insist on driving her to the ER. I stayed at home with Logan and Lucas (he was napping) until my sister got there then her fiancé drove me to the hospital. She had swelling and slight marbling of the skin but no throat swelling. They gave her a steroid and a dose of Benadryl then watched her for about an hour. They sent us home with an RX for steroids and an Epi Pen Jr. She ended up getting hives on her belly and back by Sunday morning. I made an appt with the allergist for next Wednesday. Hopefully we will know then if it was indeed the cashews or the preservatives on them. I will kept you posted!

Sunday Matt had the 10k he was running in honor of a friend (Team Tyler) with cancer. He left at 5:20am to meet up with the guys he was running the race with. I got up at 6am and got the kids and I ready. We headed to the race and watched them finish!
After the race we headed to Cracker Barrel for breakfast then came home and did a whole lot of nothing the rest of the day! 

It was a crazy, busy, and stressful weekend that I was actually glad to see end! Hopefully next weekend is much better!
