My hubby and I have passed down allergy and sinus issues to our three kids. We didn’t hold back because we really like them. But the genetic mutation has plagued my kids with hives, eczema, constant post nasal drip and now we’ve added chronic sinus infections to the list.
So, we’ve started the road of allergy testing. Because nothing screams summer fun like a MILLION TINY NEEDLES IN YOUR BACK THAT CAUSE A MASSIVE ALLERGIC REACTION?
Upon doctor’s orders, we decided to do a Sinus Rinse, also known as waterboarding. It’s like drowning in saline.
The family lined up like I was giving away ice cream with sprinkles on top.
It was a Kodak moment, except seriously, you don’t want to see photographic evidence of a genetic mutation. Seriously.
My stuffy-nosed clan actually enjoyed the procedure, which is proof that they needed it and that we don’t get out much.
There is a line in my kitchen right now for a warm saline rinse.
HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
