Not the best start to our day....

Today was Avery's yearly appointment with Mr Allergy Man.

Last year we were able to add soy and wheat back into Avery's diet! It was a MARVELOUS day! We went grocery shopping, and Avery discovered the world of pringles, animal crackers, cereals, etc.

I didn't know what I was hoping for, but not for her allergies to INCREASE...yes, you read that right.

In the last year, not only has her allergies to MILK, EGGS, and PEANUTS stayed, it's gotten stronger! That's my girl!!!!

Here is her back with the 3 reaction sites. The doctor said that a number "10" means that there is an allergy. Well, all of Avery's numbers were in the high 40-low 50's.



So, today is not the fun "let's go grocery shopping" day like last year was.

Ho hum....another year with allergies...

darn you food allergies...

I bought this lil' number a couple months ago, and we have it on our fridge as a "motivation" of sorts for Miss Avery to try new foods. So far, it's still on the fridge, as we haven't tried anything new.....still.....



Well, onto the next thing. My Livvie loves to dance with female barbie dolls...





She also has a fascination with the plunger, and likes to take it out of the bathroom whenever I'm not looking...



Oh, Livvie...got to keep me on my toes, don't ya?


Avery began addressing her Valentine's Day cards today....


She loves her some Hannah Montana!!!

And, I did manage to get PG the RIGHT cologne finally. If anyone wants to buy the Diesel for Women, let me know! I might just have to put it up on Ebay!!!

Poor Avery, I think that would be difficult to cook for her. Alyssia likes to pull out odd things like Livvie. Enjoy your Valentines's Day.

I'm so sorry there's no progress. I know that's frustrating. Abby has hives often for something environmental that we haven't figured out just yet. It really stinks!

YUCK - allergy tests look hard and painful! Sad there was no new food! Livvie is sooo cute and looks like she would have me laughing all day as I chased her!

We did an allergy test on our son 1 year ago and he's allergic to mold and mildrew. that's all the could tell me. like, who isn't. He has bad outdoor allergies so he is on Zyrtec from early spring until late fall. It's crazy.


PS. My son loves the plunger too. He likes to carry it with him and hit me with it. Christmas day he dunked it in the toilet before he hit me. Yeah disgusting.

I feel your pain. My son is allergic to peanuts too. We've had him retested several times, only to find out the peanuts are still there and his environmental allergies have gotten worse.

Seems like there are so many food allergies these days.

Avery,

I'm with you, Honey! I'm all grown up, and I still hate getting poked on the back every year. It is hurts when they poke you and itches like crazy afterward.

Hang in there, Sweetie!
