Our poor baby still has the hives.  They have gotten worse and I needed to take him in to the doctor this morning.  We have been giving him Benadryl every 4 hours on the dot!  Turns out, Benadryl has the opposite effect on him that it has on most kids.  It makes him hyper!  He was up ALL night last night.  We finally got him to settle down and he slept off and on from 3:30-5:30 this morning.  He is sooo itchy!  I feel just terrible for him.  He is too litle to understand what is going on.  He just knows that he feels rotten and itchy and mamma and dadda aren't helping him.  He got a shot of a steroid, some liquid steroid to take at home, and a different anti-histimine.  We are praying that he will be able to get some sleep tonight (mainly because mommy and daddy need sleep!).  He is trying to nap right now and I think he's finally settling down.  I hate when my kids are hurting (or itching) and I can't do anything to help them.

This weekend we will finish painting the basement.  I am excited to get that done and get it cleaned up for good.  We've been working on the basement for several months now and it will be good for it to be done! 

Have a great weekend!
