pAs of April 22, 2001, Jesse has been reaction-free for 2 whole years!/p
pSince I can't do it for you, Cindy, you need to pat yourself and Jesse on the back for a HUGE job well done!/p
pI don't think many allergy-free people understand the magnitude of this accomplishment so you might get some funny looks, but if I were you, I'd be dancing naked in the streets! [img][/img]/p
pBest wishes,/p

vic, thank-you SO much. This was SO important to me, and I believe will become even more important the more anniversaries we have (touch wood).
Now, as far as dancing in the streets nude, well, there would be 3,100 - maybe 1 or 2 people dropping dead instantly of heart attacks or great waves of nausea! [img][/img]
I think, for me, this was so important because I almost lost my son two years ago on that day. I'm very fortunate that I didn't and if I do anything here I hope it's that I share that story well enough with other people so that they don't experience the same feelings I did that night, or continue to because of it.
Best wishes! [img][/img]
