These eleven lovely pics are the vices of Wyatt's life...

We had his yearly allergy test just before his birthday hoping for that 5% chance that he had magically grown out of his peanut allergy, only to find that not only was it still present but worse. And to add to this disappointment we tacked on 9 additional allergies to be aware of:(

However, on the upside of things the Dr. told us to continue his diet as we have for the last 3 years... milk, bread and all. With these unexpected additions the Dr. suggested we start to challenge...YAY!

The food challenge is usually the last step when testing the seriousness of an allergy. As we became aware of all the new ones Dr. Jones suggested we start challenging the egg & peanuts.

Challenge #1 Peanuts : Very allergic - stay away from all nuts!
Challenge#2 Eggs : TBD

Yikes...not fun! There are A LOT of kids here in Canada that are allergic to peanuts. Not sure why but I never really heard about it back home. Here...the kids aren't allowed to bring ANYTHING with peanuts or eggs to school. Everything is peanut free...lots of kids even carry epi-pens with them at school just in case. I never realized the seriousness of allergies until living where we do. So to challenge...does that mean you try to reverse the allergy? Good luck with everything... I always feel bad for little ones that have allergies...it seems they always get gipped at parties and school activities with the treats...Poor little guy!

Dogs, what??? Oh no, what is going to happen to Roxy?

It's alright little Wyatt. Who eats dairy, eggs, wheat, peanuts, soy, yeast, rice, or dogs anyhow? Ok, that sucks little guy.

That is sure a lot of allergies for a little guy. Do you think that he will grow out of them? Hope so! Good luck!
