Poor little Austin

As most of you know my sweet little Austin is very allergic to ants! His lips and face swell up when he gets bit. The problem is that with every bit the reaction gets worse so we want to prevent his throat closing up on him! So we have started what they call allergy therapy. What that means is for the next 3 mounths he goes in twice a week to get a shot of ant venom. the amount of venom progressively gets increased. After that he has to go in once a month for a shot until the allergy is gone! So until then we carry around an epi pen and keep our eyes peeled for ant beds! 2 shots down 28 to go...until we go to 1 time a month. :)
