Blood test

We did a blood test on Gage today testing for : corn, rice, chocolate, oats, chicken and all environmental elements.

He tested negative on the skin prick test for all these back in Dec. Except the environmental, we’ve never tested on that stuff. So hopefully the blood test will give us some clue as to what’s going on with him. We are not going to give him corn until we get the results. We’ll keep rice in the diet. It actually tested positive back in December but we’ve never seen a reaction to it. Next week we’ll have the results.

Poor itchy Gage

This morning Gage woke up and had a few more dots. By noon he was itching like crazy and I had spoken to the on call allergist. Keep Benadryl and allergy meds in him. He will be tired but it should keep him comfortable. So we did that along with limiting his diet down to a few single foods. He had some corn at snack and a hive popped up beside his mouth. OH CRAP! Not corn. By evening he was feeling much better. Not itching as much. He didn’t get anymore hives. We’ll see what tomorrow brings. Monday he will go to the allergist and we’ll get this figured out!

My mommy instinct says it’s either the prevacid he just started taking, chocolate he had a lot of this week, corn, rice or the grass. I’m really praying its chocolate and not something major like the corn or rice!
