The results are in

According to the results of the blood test, there is NO allergy to the following:

Brasil Nuts

I spoke to the allergist today, and she explained that it is possible he had a sensitivity to the skin test last year that appeared to be a positive result.

Next to introduce nuts with me around!

The Waiting Game

I am waiting eagerly for the test results from my sons ImuPro Allergy test. He had a follow up skin test about a month ago and it appeared clear from all allergens. I was very excited, but due to the conflicting results from last year to this year, it was felt that doing the ImuPro test would be ideal as it is apparently very reliable. Also it can test for multiple things in one blood test. To be completely honest, I am not sure how this test is different from the RAST, but our allergist suggested it.

I can’t even imagine being able to go out and allowing him to eat at any bakery, restaurant, ice cream shop or even a friends house. All simple things he has not had the opportunity to experience. If the results are positive … life goes on, and I will continue to keep him in a safe nut-free bubble.

Someone sent this to me today, and I watched it 3 times before I was able to form an opinion as to whether I liked, loved or hated this PSA. In doing a little research, I found out that the goal of the PSA was to illustrate the dangers that seemingly innocent foods pose to thousands of children every day.

That being said, I loved the PSA. I think it met the goal is set out to achieve. The message is clear, and the delivery is powerful. The message serves as a reminder that an allergic reaction can be fatal, and parents, teachers, and caregivers should watch this. The more awareness there is, the better.
