Antiq, OUCH! :( Hope it feels better soon.

I'm trying to talk myself down from a panic attack. The girls were having a snack earlier, apple slices and peanut butter, when all of a sudden Ava says that her tongue feels itchy. Then a few minutes after that, she said her throat felt weird and dry. None of us have ever had a food allergy, but it sounded worryingly like some kind of reaction. It was mild and she was fine a short time later, but that didn't stop me from having a panic attack. Mostly on the inside, so I didn't freak her out. Much. We'll just avoid peanuts and I'll call the doctor on Monday. Not sure what else to do right now.

Maybe it was a combination of them together, if she has been OK eating them on their own.

It's a snack they've had many times. It's probably nothing, just some weird coincidence. But I'll follow up on it, just in case.

Hope it turns out to be nothing Catch-up.

Thinking of taking up something less dangerous...than gardening, I mean. Eye-stabbing is also not as fun as I imagined.

Oooh Catch-up. It could be something, or nothing. Some people have mild reactions occasionally. My son got a weird rash once after eating cashews, I kept him off nuts for a long time, but they don't appear to bother him now, so it may have just been a coincidence. Best get it checked though, no point in taking chances. I'm sure they can test her at least.

Talked to our doctor and he said what I described was consistent with a chemical reaction to the tartness of the apple. Who knew?! He said it's completely harmless and there's nothing to treat. Just to be sure, he had us give her a little bit of peanut butter. We did. No reaction at all! He said peanut allergies are not subtle and do not clear up in a few minutes like hers did. He does want us to try some apple again, but I haven't gotten to the store to get any yet.

Poor girl. Not only was there that, but she's had a couple of mishaps at horse camp this week. She had her foot stepped on pretty good. Not broken, and she recovered quickly, but there was a swollen, bruised crescent the rest of the day. Then I went to pick her up today and found out that both she and the horse she was riding fell! :shock: She's fallen a couple of times before, but the horse has never gone down with her. Thankfully neither were hurt, and I guess she was completely unfazed. She just popped right up, said she didn't know how that happened and hopped back on.

I think I'm going to bed early tonight. :roll:

I've had reactions to apples in the past. I've narrowed it down to the chemicals sprayed on the apples. I get the organic ones now and I still rinse them with hot water for a few seconds to be sure.

I'm feeling ambivalent. Of late, my computer's playing up with ever-increasing frequency, and I may have to get a new one before long. I don't particularly want to, mostly because I don't like change. In addition, I have some sort of cold or flu. Not a particularly bad one (not yet, anyway), but enough to make me mildly ill.

But...I have made my first foray into online shopping (discounting a long time spent with eBay years ago, and that was done without any kind of credit card) a couple of days ago. I got myself a prepaid Visa card, and bought some audio drama downloads off the Big Finish website. I am now the proud owner of eight Doctor Who audio dramas, bought and legally downloaded from the Big Finish website for the princely sum of $3 Australian each: Nekromanteia, The Marian Conspiracy, The Spectre of Lanyon Moor, The Fires of Vulcan, Flip-Flop, Minuet in Hell, Seasons of Fear, and The Time of the Daleks. These stories are no longer available on CD unless you try eBay or somewhere else (the first 50 stories released in the main Doctor Who range are being discontinued in CD format, and these are amongst those whose CDs have sold out), so they make an excellent addition to my collection. :)

I only discovered prepaid Visa cards myself the other day. They really are very useful for the smaller purchases (the only ones I could find have a £50 limit) if you don't have a debit/credit card of your own and are worried about security. :D

Excellent work there Chris, how long will it take for Duke to dig up again? ;)

Online shopping is now a lot easier and safer than it was back in the day. I buy loads of stuff online and rarely have a problem.
