New, sort of
I've actually been on the site for a little more than a month, but am just now figuring out the "forums".
I'm a mother of 2. The oldest is 4, she has asthma, the youngest, he is 2. Gus has PA, fish allergy and is allergic to every enviromental thing on the skin test except one. He also has asthma. We found out about his PA when he was 1, after breaking out in hives for several months. Found out the hives had nothing to do with allergies, just has cronic hives. But the blood test showed he had a 7 for peanut and then a whole list of possibles. After meeting with an awesome Ped's allergist, we learned he is allergic to Peanuts and then last year the fish popped up. He has had one reaction to peanuts after being kissed by my husband. At the time we didn't know how severe he was, so we still ate PB when he was not around. Well, now we know he is severely allergic.
I'm very excited to have found this site to have a place were everyone "gets it". I look forward to chatting with many of you.
