With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

Our new enemy – CORN

Here’s a list of Gage’s food allergies that was stay clear of: beef, wheat, soy, sesame, celery, mustard, eggs, peas, potatoes, sweet potatoes, all nuts & fish.

Since doing the blood test yesterday to check for more food allergies we are staying clear of corn. CORN is in everything. It was in 75% of the baby food he could eat. While making him Gage safe pancakes this morning I learned corn starch is in baking powder. There goes our egg substitute for baking. Then at lunch I learned corn syrup is in the safe hotdogs he can eat. What else will you pop up in corn. Oh there goes a snack – popcorn!

This will not be a fun week and a half while waiting the results.

Blue Slush

So on the way home from the allergists we went through a drive through. Charlie wanted a blue slush. DING! So I asked if there was corn syrup in the slush. yes. 😦 So I told Charlie he couldn’t drink it until we got home. He was fine with that. We get home and mommy goes to work! We had some Gage friendly lemonade mixed up. I threw that in the smoothie machine with some ice and blue food coloring! YEAH a slush for Gage. He never knew the difference and Charlie thought it was cool Gage got to drink one with him.
