Question-Who is the worst mother? Blake had her allergy test last week. It was a 2 day process and not a whole lot of fun. When she was a baby she had the blood test done and was allergic to wheat, eggs, and peanuts. The allergist in San Antonio told us to cut out wheat if it was in the first 3 ingredients, and no eggs, but if it was used in the ingredients,(like pancakes etc.) it was o.k. She got tested 6 months later and her results were the same. They can usually outgrow some allergies. Well her skin tests showed that she is allergic to dogs, cats, all types of grass, house dust, and ragweed. She could only be tested for 24 things because of her age. Food allergies are Wheat, Eggs, Soy, Peanuts, and Tree nuts. Did I mention she also has asthma?? Her Eczema has been really bad since birth. I mean she has head to toe eczema, in places you wouldn't think possible. We always thought it just went along with her asthma. Well come to find out it is mainly from her allergies, not only in the air, but stuff we have been feeding her. The above picture is of her eczema on her neck and face that is actually looking a lot better. So sad.
The worst thing is that she has to avoid food with any wheat, soy ,and nuts, and no eggs. I did not realize all the foods that have wheat and soy. It is impossible to find anything she can eat. She also will start wearing a very fashionable medical alert bracelet stating her asthma and food allergies and that she carries an epi-pen! Yes, she has to have an epi-pen with her at all times. My poor baby. There is practically nothing she can eat! She is also on a bunch of medicines and steroids right now. She can't get shots until she is 6. Something else exciting to look forward to!
