Kentucky, A Trilogy. Final Chapter

As my sisters cat "Sally" tried to snuggle up in our face around 4am, it dawned on me that "cough due to cold" was not what we were dealing with. I'm not sure why I didn't figure it out sooner, I had been coughing and sneezing since we got to my sisters.... I have had a cat allergy all my life and I honestly think I'm allergic to most pet dander, I think my children have inherited this curse.

I decided to pick up some Benadryl, also not supposed to give to children under the age of 2, so I googled it, and found a site that said I could dose her based on her weight 1/4 teaspoon, every 4 - 6 hours. My Doctor probably wouldn't be happy about my decision, but guess what? It worked. Like a Mother Freakin' Charm.

The girls went to bed and didn't peep until after 5am Sunday morning. No coughing, no sneezing nothing. I even took an adult Benadryl before I went to sleep and it was the best night of sleep we had the entire time we were there, and I mean drool on the pillow good night sleep.

Ahhhh, Benadryl.

So that concludes the minute details of our trip. We really had a fantastic time and if you ever have the chance to watch the horses run at Keeneland, you should go. It's a beautiful area, especially when all of the leaves are changing.

*Yawn* I know... Nothing worse than a blogger who feels the need to give you the run down of everything tiny little thing that happens, right? Well, at least I didn't talk about poop! Thanks for reading, I'll be more creative this week, I promise!

Ahh yes....the fantastic cat allergy. I have one. Morgan has one. It's awesome. Reason #32 we don't have a cat.

Glad Mr. Benny worked for you guys. I wouldn't worry about giving it to the girls--you had VERY good reasons for it and it's not like you use it daily to make them sleep.
