Allergies for Both of Us

Well, its official..  Me and my daughter both have allergies, including Food allergies.  This has been an ongoing issue for me fore several years but now after multiple tests and examinations and blood work and I dont even know what all else :)   She too has allergies almost as severe as mine.

 What this means is- we are both still healthy compared to many other folks and what they have to deal with but it also means LOTS of CHANGES have to happen within our Home.
 This isnt something that can be done overnite as it will consist of removing as much of the fabric as possible and by that I mean drapes and carpets.    I realize we cant live in a pristine environment and so I'll focus on the changes I can make and attempt to adjust the others.

For instance- scotchgaurd  on furniture makes it much easier to vacumm as the particles/dust/ dander and such- remain on the surface.  The Pom Babies will have to be shaved at least once a month- versus their usual quarterly shaving.  Until such time as wood flooring can be put in, Stanley Steamer will be here quarterly to do a thorough steaming of all surfaces.     Mattress boxspring and pillow covers must be purchased and used at all times.     I'm thinking this process may cost a bit of money before its over with but living as healthy as possible is the main issue and I am very grateful that though annoying, allergies are all we have to deal with , illness wise.. Oh yea and the food allergies but thats just a case of clean out the fridge cabs and storage room and purchase carefully, henseforth.      Heck, we may be much healthier for Life because of this.
 I always try to look for the Silver Lining and usually if I look for it- I find it.

 With all these changes that'll be going on around here I may only be able to post a couple times a week till I get this situation under control so if you dont see a post every other day- dont give up on me. K

 I'll still be able to take breaks and come visit ya'll.
Wish me Luck and thanks for visiting.. it means a lot to me.
