It’s only two weeks to Christmas! Where did the year go?
In the past couple of months, Bella has had both a Milk and Egg challenge. And passed!
Her milk challenge was a breeze, and she has been regularly consuming milk and other diary products ever since.
Her Egg challenge was also considered successful – no wheezing, blotches vomiting or other physical side-effects, but I noticed some rather uncharacteristic behaviour, and she complained of a sore tummy. The GREAT news is that egg and milk are no longer life threatening, which makes our lives immeasurably easier. Free to shop without checking the labels, free to eat at restaurants, free to go on holidays and eat resort food, free to eat at friends without bringing our own food, or checking their labels, free to drop Bella at a friend’s house for a visit or party or sleep over without worrying about her food.
Bella has been delighting in trying all the foods she has been denied: Icecream; Donuts; Birthday cake; chocolate; twisties; and the list goes on (all health food, of course :))
So here’s to our new life without milk and egg allergy!
