The Doctors: 4-Year-Old Goes Viral With Paper Dresses
4-year-old Sydney went viral when her mother Angie started taking photos of her paper dress creations. It started when she was 2 and started playing dress-up. Angie suggested they make a dress out of paper. From then on, they’ve made all kinds of dresses out of paper. They’ve used construction paper, tissue paper, and anything else they have around the house. They even made one out of toilet paper once. Sydney has learned how to measure things and cut things out of paper herself. Angie said that Sydney is the creative mind behind things, but she does need help, so Angie gives her a hand.
The Doctors: Severe Food Allergies
Angie thought they could use the fame to bring awareness of food allergies. When Sydney first tried peanut butter, she had a serious reaction. So when she was three, Angie took her to an allergist and found out she had a number of food allergies. Angie said she’s constantly aware of everything Sydney does to make sure she doesn’t accidentally come in contact with any of the foods she’s allergic to.
The Doctors: Living With Severe Food Allergies
Angie and Sydney joined The Doctors over satellite. They wanted to come to the studio, but Angie and Sydney still have a lot of concerns about traveling. They have to check airline policies, pack their own food, and stay in places where they can cook their own food.
Pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears said that symptoms of food allergies include rashes, hives, itching, swelling, shortness of breath and difficulty breathing, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. Dr. Travis added that sometimes even just peanut butter which is released into the air when the packages of peanuts are opened can cause an allergic reaction for someone who is allergic.
The Doctors: Gifts For Sydney
Then The Doctors revealed they were giving a good allergy survival kit to Sydney and her mother, as well as food allergy bracelets. Dr. Rachael also revealed they were sending Sydney a Frozen gift package, which included an Anna costume, a DVD, and several other Frozen-themed things.
In the process of giving away this gift, Dr. Jim Sears referred to Idina Menzel as “Adele Dazeem”, which was the same mispronunciation that John Travolta had of her name at the Oscars. I thought at first he did it on purpose to be goofy, but no one laughed or pointed it out. Did he really make that mistake? It seems weird he’d mispronounce it the same way.
