OH HAPPY DAY

Two posts in one day! Mark and I returned from his annual allergy check up. He has been allergic to eggs and peanuts since was a baby. Unfortunately, we learned the hard way. Since he was 11 months old, we have been carrying around epi-pens. Each time he gets tested, his reactions are "better". Well this year we had good news and bad news. The good news---he outgrew his egg allergy. The bad news--he is still allergic to peanuts. So, we still have to have that dreaded pen. It's going to take me awhile to actually feed him eggs. He has never tasted a fried, scrambled or any kind of egg since that horrible day back in 2001. I even told the doctor that this will be something I have to "ease into". Just within the last year, we've been "introducing" him to baked goods with eggs and he has been able to tolerate them. We celebrated with McDonald's milkshakes and a call to dad telling him "what a good job" he did and never even cried. Oh Happy Day!!!
