A couple of weeks ago Henry got his blood drawn to retest for his allergies. We got the results back yesterday and we're very happy! Henry's tested negative for wheat, peanut, and other nut allergies! His egg allergy has almost disappeared, the doctor recommended not to give him plain eggs, but said that cooked in foods it was fine. His milk allergy remains, which we will retest in one more year. But for now we are so happy! Say hello to a whole new food world Henry, you're going to love it!
Here he is today eating a peanut butter sandwich! I hope this means no more grabbing crusts off the top of the trash and sneaking away to a corner to eat it:)
On the other hand, now we have Paisley. Yesterday I gave her some of my scrambled eggs. This led to her breaking out in hives and vomiting several times. I also suspect that the eczema on her face may be related to a wheat allergy (it started showing up around the time I introduced cheerios). I plan to just watch her carefully until her first birthday when I will probably have her tested as well. I guess it's a waiting game then.
