It's Beginning

Julie decided to see an allergist and get tested. The results weren't surprising but one item was of interest. Her strongest reaction was to Junipers. Yep, Junipers like the ones that surround our house.

She started a regimen of shots a few weeks ago. This Thursday she steps up to a higher dosage.

Guess what season is beginning. About this time of year amorous male Junipers begin turning slightly red. Before long I'll be able to shake a branch and watch a red cloud of pollen drift with the breeze.

Seasons come and go. This one will pass without too much discomfort hopefully. In a couple years we'll know if the shots alleviate her reaction.

Severe allergies can certainly eat your lunch ... and dinner too. Let's hope the shots worked.

When I was t3wsted a few years ago, I was only allergic to one thing -- cats. And we had one. It was a mild allergy, and we'd had him for years, so I wasn't concerned.

Oh no! Poor Julie! I've seen Allan & Trista suffer with allergies for years. Not something I would want to have to put up with! Hope the shots work!
