Fox in socks I went to see that allergy doctor in Surrey that you recommended to me as zizou

and he was very nice. It was really expensive, but he confirmed the severity of dd1s nut allergy and also that dd2 has severe dust mite allergy which explains a lot, which is irritating as you have to be a kind of bree van der kamp with a dyson prosthetic. Just in case you were thinking of actually going.

foxy oh foxy
I want to discuss the South African Allergy Doctor and his eager, rodent like demeanour.

I had heard he was good.

What a PITA about the expense but I suppose good to know where you stand.

lol at your dyson prosthetic! Have you got carpets at home?

We do have carpet upstairs. I am in the process of surreptitiously washing beloved cuddly toys that have never been washed. Eucalyptus oil kils them apparently.

Are you thinking of going? It cost (sshhhh - 240 for both of them.)
Is it your dd or your ds? Your dd I think? (have I got that right)I now have to train dd1 to self-administer epipen. Slightly scared about that.

Eye opening about private hospitals. Had never been in one. So posh, with a cappuccino machine and mozart playing and corporate carpets with high thread counts.

yes, I think shoving the toys in the freezer kills the dust mites (but probably kills the toys too).

Was thinking about going but probably won't as dd does appear to be so much better - is hardly needing her inhaler, her hayfever has not been as bad as last year (dare I even think that she may be getting better as she gets older!).

That cost is not too bad - we saw a private ENT for dd (when her glue ear was bad and no-one wanted to see us) and that appointment, ON ITS OWN, came to about £200 . Still, it was worth it for the peace of mind.

I also found (with the private ENT), everyone was so polite!
