Hives update

I am proud to say that the hives are doing a lot better! I was able to take a wonderful bubble bath with my favorite bubble bath (picutred-- Thymes lavender yum!) for the first time in almost three years!  I am still too nervous to go hot tubbing.  Last time I got a pedicure it gave me a few hives still.  The hot water seems to bring them out.

My dermatologist told me that there is new research that shows that a significant number of chronic hives sufferers have a Vitamin D deficiency.  There have been reports that if the Vitamin D levels are increased that the hives will improve.  I got tested, and wouldn't you know it, my levels are low.  So, I am starting on Vitamin D supplements ASAP to see if it helps.  I will cross my fingers! :)

Visiting Cecily and Beckett

 Beckett was playing Peek A Boo during lunch! Cecily and I tried out a new sushi place.  I can't even remember the name, but it wasn't the best place we have ever been too.  Oh, well.

 Beckett tried on a coat, but he wouldn't stay still for long enough to get a good picture!
 We found the cutest little Mickey Mouse rocking chair that was just Beckett's size! He loved it! Too bad it was $50. 
 We took Beckett to Gardner Village to look at all the witches.  He learned how to say witch! It was so cute! It was funny because it sounded more like "wish".  He loved to look at the witches and point at them, but he did not want to touch them or get near them! We tried to sit him on this bench and he was not too happy! So Cecily sat on the bench with him, and she put him on the witch's lap.  He was trying to get away as fast as he could!
 He did have fun walking all over the place though.

And of course, he loved the little pond, he wanted to go swimming, but it was a little cold for that. :)
