With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

Good News!

Finally, some good news. Something to smile about. Who would have thought I would be smiling leaving the allergist office.

Today was Tinleigh’s first allergist appointment. They did a scratch test on her. How do you scratch test a baby? I laid on the table. She laid on my belly on her belly. I held her arms and head while a nurse held her legs. They are very quick at it and she really didn’t get too mad. I was afraid she would scream and make herself puke right in my face.

We tested her on the common 8, a few molds and then about 8 more foods that the boys have in common. The giant red mark is her milk allergy that we knew about. She’s also allergic to chicken, apples and an indoor mold. THAT’S IT! I was elated. I couldn’t have been happier.

After a quick discussion with the allergist we came to an agreement that her constant gunky cough and ear issues may be due to the fact that she’s always eating apples. So she is now apple and chicken free. Hopefully the gunk goes away.

With so little showing up on the allergy test my hopes of her being Eosinophilic Esophagitis free are a little higher. Not too high though. Charlie was 4-1/2 when his allergies all popped up. But I’ll take this for now! Her scope is scheduled the beginning of December.

What a great day in our world of allergies. Shoot, milk, chicken and apples? That’s a walk in the park.
