You can only admire the tenacity and stamina of children, even though my son Bobby is covered in a viral rash all over his torso, with no other symptoms, he was determined to go out and splash the puddles!
Bobby was due an almond food challenge on Monday, we were psyched and ready to go. Sunday night he broke out in a rash, which might have been an allergic reaction, so we immediately gave him an anti-histamine and followed our anaphylaxis action plan.
After consultation with his specialist and because the rash is still present 48 hours later, it might be a response to a virus. Who knows, all I know that whilst I feel stressed and worried, he cheers me up with his good humour, his sense of adventure and the joy of childhood. His sense of fun and energy pushes me ‘to be in the moment’, and how could you do otherwise, when he’s jumping in puddles and making a splash!
