Another Challenge Test

Squeaky goes tomorrow for another challenge test. This time for peanuts. On the last skin test results, she had a weaker response to peanuts than eggs. That would indicate that she isn't allergic to peanuts anymore because she passed the egg test. It still makes us nervous to think about sitting there with her while she eats small amounts of peanut butter to see her response. Even though it's in a controlled environment with lots of nurses and doctors ready, we're still uneasy about the test. Of course, there's no other way to see if the allergy still exists. If she passes this one, we'll still need to find out about tree nuts.

My How They've Grown

Making Cinnamon Toast

We let the kids help make their own cinnamon toast for breakfast. This is one of those mornings. The silly hats are optional.

In the past, we've blogged about the allergies the kids have. Yesterday Squeaky had her egg challenge test. She passed. That means we can now have eggs in the house, cook with them and eat them. We celebrated last night by fixing some (peanut/tree nut free) brownies with egss and eating them.
