Lucky Little Man

Little Man had his allergy test yesterday. They tested for a lot of things and he was allergic to none of them. The only thing they didn't test for is shellfish. They said he couldn't be tested for it until he had eaten some. We'll have to get up the nerve to work a small amount into a meal. After the reactions we have seen Squeaky and Blondie have to nuts, we're not looking forward to another reaction of any kind.

Early To Rise

Blondie is an early bird. The other 2 sleep until 7AM, but not Blondie. It doesn't matter what time she gets in the bed, she usually wakes up between 6 and 630AM. This is a problem because all 3 still sleep in the same room and when she wakes up, she starts crying until somone comes to get her. Until she stops doing that, we'll get no mornings to sleep late.

More Allergies

After the latex patch test, we found out Squeaky is not allergic to latex. She is just extremely sensitive to it and it can cause dermatitis. She is still allergic to peanuts. In addition, we think it's safe to assume she is allergic to tree nuts too. This is based on the discovery that Blondie is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. This was discovered after she was given a banana nut muffin and we ended up at the Emergency Room. When Blondie had her allergy prick test, she was tested for tree nuts. When Squeaky had her prick test, she was not tested for tree nuts. She'll probably be getting that test at the next annual follow-up.

So it's been over 6 months since our last entry. We're really going to try and do better this year. Until we get moving along, enjoy this photo.
