Blood test numbers back

Lily's numbers actually went UP, from 28 point something to 30 point something. It's all kind of relative at this level anyway but we would have liked to see a little decline just to make ourselves think she would outgrow it soon.

More than one allergist has pointed out that kids outgrow milk allergy, and most of them by age 4 or 5. But Lily's numbers have always been so high that they have told us not to expect that until she's 9 or 10 at least...if ever. So it looks like we keep at it for the time being.

Like you said, 28 isn't much different than 30 but it is pretty disappointing On a positive note, it basically stayed the same instead of drastically increasing.....

Life goes on right?

I'm sorry you didn't get more encouraging news. It sounds like you have a good attitude about it, though.


How is the peanut allergy going?
