Hi Jenn, welcome to the board. I can really understand your situation.
After seven years of no reactions we had my dd's rast done and again she was still over 100. This was extremely disappointing to say the least. I think we all hope that our child will be one of the lucky ones but unfortunately that is most often "not" the case.
Since this was some time ago now, we are fully resigned to the fact that this is probably going to be life long and we are ok with that.

Hello and welcome!
My son is five and I have also come to terms with his PA being life-long. When he was younger and his RAST numbers were lower, I had hoped that he would outgrow it. I was devastated when his numbers went up and then he was also diagnosed with asthma. I have learned a lot from people here. You are not alone!
Best wishes,

Thank you all so much for the kind words of encouragement. It means so much.
Even the people closest to me who love my son immensely do not truly understand what a mother of a PA child feels and goes through. Sometimes I wonder if my husband even knows.
I appreciate you all. Thanks again.
Dumb question: I figured out what "DS, DD, DH" refer to, but just wondering what it actually stands for. I know I will feel stupid when someone explains it! LOL
