Tis The Season

It is allergy season here in Fairbanks.  This means 1 tsp of this and drops for each eye in the morning, pills midday and rounding things out with squirts for each nostril at night.  Just to be on the safe side we have puffs on hand during the day, as needed.    

This has been going on for a few weeks but last night's emergency run to the clinic brought things to a whole new level.  Not only are we well prepared on our meds but we are also taking special care in prevention.  Extensive bathes are now needed nightly to wash off all dirt and pollen out of hair and clothes must not be dried on the outside clothes lines.  New bedding is in place and the bedroom has been dusted and vacuumed daily.    Oh how we hope the pollen count goes down soon.
We all love spring so much but how it makes 1/5th of us not so wonderful.  My poor girl will get through but it is hard for sure.
