Busy Day...

WHewww...the last days of summer are wearing me out....we have run like crazy today. I spent part of the morning at Mom's where I dropped off the kids to make a run to Walmart...we were out of diapers and toilet paper and laundry detergant...so it was necesary! Me and my dear hubby have a little project going as well...I'm not telling you what it is just yet...but it involves fabric and 7 cans of black spray paint and some nifty little safety pins...if it works out I will post pics, if it doesn't I won't mention it again!

On to the important stuff, Dr. C called today with the results from Noah's blood work last week. The peanut levels haven't changed, which we expected, and Noah has a very very mild positive to cashews, almond, and hazelnut. No big thing here, they have probably been positive all along, and we don't feed him any kind of nuts at all so that doesn't change anything for us. The good news is that his egg allergy has dropped down from a level 4 to a level 3(there are six levels one being the mildest, six being the highest) This drop has occured in a little over a year so we are very very hopeful that if this continues to drop he will eventually OUTGROW HIS EGG ALLERGY!!! Which would make some things so much easier for him!!!! Please continue to pray with us, I am very hopeful that he will leave this egg allergy behind in a year or so! His allergy specialist is very encouraged by this development and she was suprised as well, so we're hoping that since he has already outgrown a major milk allergy that the egg is next to come!

We also had a FEAST meeting tonight about preparing for a successful school year with food allergies and my sweet friend Meredith came along with me, so we treated ourselves to a little dinner out and followed it up with Baskin Robbins...yum!!! It was a fun but a busy day!
