3 1/2 hours in a specialists office with Charlie
4 different doses of peanut butter over that 3 1/2 hour period
Time spent reading, watching movies playing bouncy ball in a confined room with an active 4 year old
No reaction to Peanut Butter, no more epi pen, no more Benadryl
Total expenses for the day $1400
Seriously...the dude won't even eat peanut butter now that he can. He finally tried a Reese's peanut butter cup and he didn't really like it. While my insurance will cover the costs of this visit to the allergist it's absolutely insane and ended up being almost 5X more what the hospital said they would charge us. Yes, I double checked with the hospital after we received a bill for over $700 for a consult visit..10 minute to gather the information they already had on Charlie's case...
I am plain FRUSTRATED!!!!
