    Crunk - Allergy Apts

    I saw on the other board that you have allergist appointments coming up this month. Are they going to re-test?

    Are you excited for the appointment, or totally dreading it?

    I am not 100% sure what they are going to do. At our last appt which was already 6 months ago, I am guessing you remember, his numbers for peanuts went down dramatically. I am assuming they will retest to see where they are now, maybe one or both of the previous tests weren't true. He said he usually would see him back in a year but bc of the change it is 6 months. The appt is the 11th....I am very excited for the appt. Either way, it is still severe so either way there isn't much room for disappointment.

    Thank you for asking and I will keep you posted!

    Thanks for thinking of us!

    We are going to challenge baked eggs on Thursday! Woohoo!!

    And Peanuts went back up to 29. They started at 84, went down to 24 a year later and this is why we went back after only 6 months. He wanted to see what the peanuts were going to do. It is good news since it didn't go as high as 80 something again but bad news because it didn't get any lower. He said kids have a 30% chance of growing out of it and since he is only 2 1/2 he doesn't want to rule it out yet.

    He also said he would probably be fine eating tree nuts but with a kid so young, it is better to just teach them not to eat nuts at all.....

    I will keep you posted with the challenge!
