Ticket delay with my personal apologies

 

I have a bit of a medical emergency going on in my house right now. Nutshell version: baby has an unexpected and fairly severe food allergy. So I'll get the tickets posted as soon as I can.

 

My personal apologies for the delay.

Is the baby ok?

He's fine now. Just turns out to have a pretty severe allergy to eggs. He found a bit of egg white on the floor left behind by my four year old. We got it out of his mouth and didn't think much of it until his face turned red and his tongue swelled up.

Lucky for us the Epi-pen Jr. is covered by insurance.

 

In actual point of fact, the reaction episode was a couple of days ago on Saturday, but his pediatrician was so concerned -- apparently a reaction like this is fairly rare in infants -- that her staff got us into an allergy specialist right away. Today was the specialist appointment. And it really is as bad as we feared.

 

So yeah, scary new adjustment, but one we can live with. Getting rid of all the eggs in the house, finding replacement recipes for all of our favorite stuff -- just can't risk it with the four-year-old and two-year-old in the house, you know? Leaving chunks of food around around, trying to feed the baby, etc.

 

So, Joseph is okay, he may outgrow it, and we always expect some new sort of problem with each of our kids. Turns out #5 has a serious food allergy. Better we found out about it this way than the first time we purposefully fed him eggs.

 

Thanks for all the kind words. Heidi and I really appreciate it.

Wow! I'm so glad everything is OK now. I have an almost-two-year-old; I can imagine how scared you must have been.

 

That's a big lifestyle change to undergo (eliminating eggs), but I would totally do the same thing. It's just too risky with a well intentioned four year old who wants to help feed the baby.

Stab yes heart no.

Mr Flit should carry one of those for his bee alergy but doesn't. He thinks that "maybe he is not alergic anymore". And yes, he has been lectured about it - mostly by his mother.

 

Glad that everyone is well in the Kit Household. ::):

Kit,

 

I'm glad to hear that the little guy is okay! Next time, don't even bother to stop and post about the delay!

Wow, I imagine eggs would be hard to eliminate completely. There are so many popular products with some egg in them. ::(:

Kit, I'm glad you caught that allergy early and that the little ones ok!

 

When you eliminate eggs, I'd check the resources online for egg allergies to make sure you get them all. Hidden egg contaminated foods (like glazing in pastries, etc that aren't always disclosed) suck to find the hard way.

We don't really buy any processed foods. We make just about everything homemade and never eat out. Getting rid of eggs from our diet consists of removing the carton from the fridge. Done! ::D:

 

Everything else, we're scouring the labels. Ain't going to get ovum past our noses.
