Zane’s Allergy Update- Some Good News!

Last week. we went up to Boston Children’s Hospital Pediatric Allergy Clinic for Zane’s two year appointment. When we got there, I was terrified because Zane is not one to sit still, let alone sit still for blood and skin testings. Add to that, he did not nap at all that day, ¬†and I knew it was going to be a very long day.

While Zane was very restless, he did very good! At the completion of the skin testing, we got some great news- he is no longer allergic to eggs. While this might not seem like a big deal to some, to a parent who has kids with severe food allergies, this was simply amazing. He can now eat eggs of any types and in all baked goods. YAH!!

Unfortunately, he still has a severe peanut allergy and an allergy to tree nuts. This allergy can be very tricky because so many food items can’t be guaranteed, that they are not made in a peanut factory. I have to check each and every label before I give it to him. While it is a lot of work, I am definitely getting used to it after a year of doing it. Also, I am grateful that besides his food allergies, he is a very happy (yet rambunctious) and healthy 2 year old.

I am glad we got some great news at the allergist! They do not think his peanut allergies will ever go away, but we will cross that bridge when we get to it.

Now some cute recent pictures of him:

(all taken with my cell phone so not the best quality but you can see how big he is getting)

    So glad to hear that he no longer has an egg allergy! What a relief that must be. Even though they said they didn’t think so, hopefully the same will happen will happen with his nut allergy too. He is adorable and what a great smile!

    That is one less allergy headache you have to deal with and that is a fantastic feat! I’m so happy for you! Allergies are not fun things to manage when it comes to our kids.

    I have food allergies and I know what a pain it is. I’m glad he’s no longer allergic to eggs (that’s a tough one). I’m allergic to tree nuts and strange food dye, if I can’t read the label myself or I didn’t make it, I don’t eat it. Look at all his hair! Adorable!
