The holidays are over. It has been such an eventful past couple of weeks for me. Two days before Christmas the ice storm hit Toronto and we were over 15 hours without hydro, a tree came down on our front lawn because of the weight of the ice and my son arrived home by bus from school during the power failure and storm. We had a lovely Christmas with everyone home, but Boxing Day I had my daughter at the walk in clinic and diagnosed with Strep Throat. On New Year's Eve she had some spots develop on her arm which spread over the course of the evening. New Year's day she was covered with more of a rash, red and puffy and developed a really high fever. We took her too Emergency and found out she was having an allergic reaction to the Amoxicillan she was taking for her throat. She was given an Epinephrine injection and Prednizone and finally released during the night after the swelling started to come down. She is much much better but still taking medication to help get it out of her system. She has never been allergic to anything and has taken Amoxicillan many times before but you never know when an allergy can hit. Always trust your gut instinct when something doesn't seem right. Then all too soon it seems my son has headed back to school, the decorations are down for another year and I am so far behind on visiting my favourite blogs, but I will visit you soon.
In the past each January comes with a resolution that I try to follow and then a what was it again? So this year my resolution is to not put unrealistic expectations on myself, I am hoping that makes for a happier, less stressed creative me. May 2014 be a year full of health and happiness for all of you!
