From the Top - Part 2

April Continued
We found out that Seth is allergic to Pistachios (really allergic, like go to the ER allergic).
It all started at the park where we ate lunch and played on the playground.  Seth started crying that his eyes itched.  I thought he might have dust or something in them, so I tried to rinse out his eyes.  Then his eyes started puffing up and my mom adamantly said we needed to go get him some medicine. After running through the Walgreens, and having Seth throw up his medicine, my mom told us to take him to the ER.
We got him to the emergency room and I held him up to admitting window and said, "My son is having an allergic reaction".  They swooped us right in.  Long story short, we now carry an epi pen and steer clear of pistachios and cashews (the snooty nuts).
Are those eyes puffy from crying or the pistachios?

All is well as soon as he started watching the tube.
Matthew thought the ER was fantastic since they had Sponge Bob playing

I'm just glad my parents were there to recognize what was happening and for taking care of Matthew while Seth and I waited hung out  in the ER.
