I need someone to be excited for me...

We went to DD's allergist on Wednesday for a regular check-up and Tuesday night I started crying because I knew they were going to test her and nothing would change, but I kind of had my hopes up that we would get something back. Well, according to her skin test, everything came back negative!!! I was shocked, I kept watching her back and nothing ever puffed up. So we are supposed to introduce foods one at a time back into her diet. I started dairy on Wednesday, she's had some everyday and no reaction! My family and co-workers just aren't as excited as I am, and I need people who understand how frustrating allergies are to be excited for me :)

  • That is SO exciting!!

    Food allergies suck and anyone who hasn't had to deal with them might not get the excitement behind these results.

    I'm still hanging out in uncertainty land with a ton of anxiety. We're waiting for the allergist to call to book an appt and have been warned it wouldn't be for a while.

  • Party!!!As a mom of a child with multiple serious food allergies---and of which are growing out of them--I'm not just excited for you--I'm ecstatic!!!

     People don't realize how horrible and life-changing these can be if they've never dealt with them.  And when they begin growing out of them--it's again LIFE CHANGING.  But this time it's in a GREAT way.  For instance, something as simple as eating out.  Now you can (or someday can) order right off the menu instead of basically preparing LO a meal to take with you --which kind of defeats the purpose of eating out LOL.  

    I'm VERRRRRRY excited for you!

  • I would be over the moon happy!!  Congrats and do a happy dance!!!!!
