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.

Food Trials

This was my post last night - I guess I forgot to post it!

I've got the urge to push it. My future food trial list grows by the day. We haven't had a fail since the end of June, however we've had lots of ups and downs since then. With my list growing with pork, peaches, carrots, you name it, I was ready to get the show on the road, starting with carrots. We started them, hmmm, Sunday, maybe? Carrots are another food I figured would be safe, she'd had them since she was a baby, only taking a break when we went on the complete elimination diet. Tonight, at supper while getting her carrots, potatoes, and other smorgasbord items ready for her dinner I decided to go for peaches. Kara gobbled them up, couldn't get enough of them!!!

Now she's fussy, laying on the floor. She's catching a cold, cutting molars and tired so hopefully it's "just" that. Yep, JUST that. To anyone else, "just that" would be a big deal. I can handle that. It's the reactions that I can't handle. I'm really hoping she's not going to have a reaction.
