I've wondered, and not necessarily unhappily, the same thing. On this site even. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Years ago, (and sometimes, still today) I found there was always that *one* child in school who had compassion for *everyone*. That special one. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/cool.gif[/img]

I wouldnt....and we were so lucky that Becky suffered her first PA reaction on that particular day. 48 hours later it would have happened on an 11 hour flight to Mexico and less than a week later we would have been boarded up in a hotel sitting out a category 4 hurricane. Thank God for that reaction.

I wouldn't trade the allergy for something else in my child, but would trade it if I could take the trade off. Did that make sense?
I see some of my friends with children who are struggling in school, we have two families whose children have Leukemia in our school, I grew up with a child who had a deformity on his arm. I wouldn't trade PA for any of that.
As scary as PA is, I still feel that it could be the lesser of the evils.
I just continue to hope that the grace of God will continue to be with DS and all who care for him and he will be safe.

In respose to original post that started this link:
No! I would not trade/wish anything different. I accept that this is the hand we are dealt, and I thank God everyday that this is our burden. This is how I live with this. I have 3 children that are PA/TNA, and I know that there are a lot of worse scenarios for children(people) out there. This is just my philosopy.
I know some disagree, but for us, we just deal---well, this and the help of my meds for anxiety and panic disorder!
