    Blood test numbers back
    seeit2 posted:
    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?
