LIVING

With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

Things are looking up

Although we still have a long road ahead of us, right now things are great. Gage has been eating wheat and corn for a month now and no problems at all! He’s also ditched his crib, diapers and bottle!  He’s like a little man now. (sniff sniff) I knew that when he was asking for a bottle of warm milk it was time to give it up. I let him have it for so long after turning one so that he would get extra calories he needed. Knowing he always finished his bottle it was a win win for both of us.

We’ve had his toddler bed set up in his room for quite sometime but he’s been afraid of it. I think he’s going to be a gentle giant when he grows up. Finally one night I said let’s try the big boy bed again. He slept in it all night with no problems. Next day, crib came down. The great thing about it is he won’t get out of the bed unless I’m in the room. That includes during the day too. With Charlie we would always have to sit there until he fell asleep because he would never stay in it.

The potty training was super simple too. He’s not even 2-1/2 yet! First week we went right into underwear. He had 3 accidents and that was it. He’s even staying dry at night and during nap. He may be the easiest kid yet.

He recently had his first pop tart. It was like baby crack. Have to be careful though some pop tart flavors do contain egg. I’m still learning!

So let’s cheers to Gage for a great month!

Fried Chicken – The Gage Way

If you’re looking for a fried chicken recipe that’s allergy friendly here it is!

My husband, who is allergic to chicken, created this just for Gage. Poor guy has no idea what chicken tastes like but he’s a wonderfully creative chef. Not an actual chef, but could be if he wanted.

He used a chicken tenderloin. Heat up some safe butter in the skillet. Soak your chicken in milk. Place some rice flour and tapioca flour in a baggie. Once the butter is hot plop the chicken in the baggie to coat it. Quickly place it in the butter. Fry it on both sides until the butter is gone. Add a little salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Both Gage and Charlie gobbled it up! Sure it’s not healthy but probably the most fatty meal Gage gets. He can’t eat junk food so I doubt this could hurt much.

Here’s a beer for you honey for some yummy fried chicken (you can’t even eat)     And, had to leave the kitchen after cooking it because it was making your allergies flare up. CHEERS!
