Joseph had his food challenge this morning. Last month he had a neg. rast, and spt. He was finally at a point where he wanted to do it and was such a good boy. He tolerated a bit on a q tip, then a bit more on a q tip. Then, 1/4 tspn on a cracker and he got an itchy, red, swollen eye, blotches around the mouth, and blotches on his back and stomach. He got a runny nose and became drowsy. That was the end of that. He got better with benedryl. Allergist says to try again in a year. I'm so disappointed!!! Trying not to cry so ds doesn't get upset. Just so disappointed.
