Oh boy! Last week, Mandy had Kurtis over to DuBois to finish up the scratch allergy testings they wanted to do on Kurtis.
The results are in now and WOW, lots of changes gonna take place around here by the end of the month I do believe!
He has several things check on the food category that we will have to begin eliminating after Christmas. One thing checked is pork and that's really unfortunate because pork or things with pork in them just so happen to be some of the things the boy would actually eat without major hissy fits in the process! Wouldn't you just know it! He loves bacon, but of course, at least we can get turkey bacon and sub that for him. Sausage -I don't know is there any sausage substitute? We put off the food elimination till after Christmas so he can at least still have some Christmas ham that way because he will eat ham. New Year's pork and sauerkraut though is not on the problem list since he won't go near that to begin with.
We've been checking other items on this list too and things we're supposed to do with respect to other aspects in the house -like get plastic covers for the mattresses and pillows -thankfully, we don't have to worry about something like a latex mattress though!
I'd really be ready to go into cardiac arrest if we had to go buy a new mattress set for him right now.
I had to laugh a bit about this whole allergy thing tonight though as I was getting ready to cook supper. Maya asked what I was fixing and I told her, "Fish and mac'n'cheese -just like you asked for!" To which she turned around and told me "Just be sure it isn't Lake Trout though Gram, because Kurtis is allergic to that you know!"
She probably knows everything that's checked on that list better than Mandy and I do by now!
