Blueberries, check!

Food challenge number two was a whopping success. On Wednesday morning we had to be at CHOP by 7:30. Thankfully Abby is so cooperative about the restrictions (only clear fluids after midnight). We were early so we got checked in second. This also meant that we got a bed next to the window!

The test was started around 8:30 and she loved the blueberries immediately. The nurse and I thought things were going south when her stomach started to ache but it turned out she was just hungry. Her last challenge (pecans) yielded some itching of her tongue and face. This challenge came with NO SYMPTOMS!

So, now she can add blueberries to her safe list. The next challenge will be in July and that one will be walnuts.
I am so thankful and fortunate that despite all of these years of tests, appointments, surgery, etc. she remains the worlds best patient!
