To make this week even more fun, I had to take Zack to the doctor's yesterday afternoon. Monday, his already larger than normal volume of snot was coming out a lovely shade of yellow leading me to believe he had ANOTHER sinus infection. He's not sick so at this point I'm thinking the poor kid has allergies and I'd like him tested. Could it be the large dust bunny population or the cats making him sniffle and sneeze? His doctor agreed that he has a sinus infection and that allergy testing would be a smart next move (isn't that what I just said? They should call me DOCTOR Molnar). He said he can either send us to an allergist for a full round of scratch tests or start with blood work, testing for the basics. Uh, option number two please! I can't see putting him through the horror that is scratch testing if we can take a couple of vials of blood and see if it is indeed the dust bunnies and kitty cats causing all the snot. If he does need scratch testing, I'm sending him with Dad. I don't think I can take the whining that would be produced by the horrible horrible itching. I can remember MY OWN childhood whining over scratch tests and just the memory makes my ears bleed.
So, does anyone want two cats? They're dumb as a box of rocks, nearly identical, don't shed much, go out all night, and sleep all day. Anyone? Hello?
