Kara was diagnosed with food protein induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) in August of 2010. She has had many FPIES reactions and complications that have lead to numerous hospitalizations and specialist appointments. It was a huge sigh of relief to finally have some answers and a diagnosis, however we have to remind ourselves daily that this is a very serious disease and this is only the beginning of the long road we have in front of us.

My 14 month old baby is finally starting to walk!

Kara was early at rolling over, early at crawling so of course I thought she was going to be an early walker! Her sister walked at 10 months and she beat her at everything else! Kara would be so close to walking and then get sick where she'd just lay on one of us for 3 days and then cling to us for a week after her sickness. It has been one set back after another for her. In the last few days she's improved more and more by the day. Tonight we were amazed as she'd stand right up in the middle of the room, take a few steps and carefully sit back down. She's making progress so as long as she stays somewhat healthy, we should be there soon!
