Saturday morning, KayTar woke up with slightly puffy lips and was wheezing a bit.
Her lips were not nearly as swollen as they were for her previous reactions, but they were noticeably puffier than her usual little pout.
She said her lips felt funny and wanted some Chapstick, so I gave that to her, with a side of Benadryl to prevent the swelling from getting worse, and Albuterol for the wheezing.
I asked her if she had anything to eat at the YMCA the previous night and she said she had, even though they've been instructed not to feed the KayTar due to allergies. She said it was "pop chicken" and she spit it out because it was "so gross it made her THROW UP." (I still haven't been able to reach anyone who knows what she was given on Friday. I think it is unrelated because of the time that had passed, but I still want to know.)
The swelling did not progress any further and she fell asleep for a while. I watched her closely, but she was fine for the remainder of the day.
I don't know if it was an allergic reaction or not. I feel certain it wasn't a reaction to whatever she has reacted to previously, as reactions get worse in intensity, they do not lessen. I will mention it to her new allergist in a few weeks and let her decide what to do with the information.
Yesterday afternoon, KayTar said that her head was hurting, so I gave her Tylenol.
Then she said her eyes were hurting, so I held my breath, hoping it wasn't an episode.
Then she said that her eyes were spinny and she couldn't make them stop, so I turned out the light, darkened the windows, got the emesis basin, put down towels and waterproof sheets under her, and laid down with her in the silent, dark room.
She said she felt better. Then she said she felt spinny. She gagged a bit. Then again, she said she felt better.
I suggested that we lay together and rest for a while, she muttered her agreement and fell fast asleep.
A couple of hours later she woke up and was totally fine. She was fine for the rest of the day.
It never turned into an episode, though it sure danced close to the edges.
