i just wanted to share my fablous news! my son passed his food challenge for DAIRY! i am so happy. we are going to have mac and cheese today for lunch! i know i have to introduce the dairy into his diet slowley but box mac and cheese is hardly cheese!

it was very funny. at the allergist we had to bribe himm to drink the milk, he kept saying it was going to make him sick. i guess we did a good job of teaching him to avoid dairy! now we have to reteach him!

now we are down to just peanuts, my mother in laws dog, strawberries and a handfull of meds.
woooooo hooo the list is getting shorter!

You must be SOOOOOOOO excited. Living without milk and having to avoid it must be the hardest allergy of all. My daughter still has her egg allergy so I can completely feel your happiness!!!!
Congratulations!!!!!!

Terrfic news! I think dairy and egg must be the MOST difficult allergens to avoid, and I'm so glad you can cross it off your list now! Congrats!

That is awesome! I can't WAIT for that day!! Can you give a little more info? How old is he? What has his numbers been like over the years? What were his reactions like? Any accidental exposures?
Sorry for so many questions, but like I said, I'm still hanging on that my son will soon outgrow as well!!

Congratulations!! That is so exciting. My dd is milk allergic and at least 80% of foods she cannot have due to milk allergy. That is wonderful news.

Great news ... I am hopeful that our daughter will pass an egg challenge in three years. That would leave us with just peanut. Thankfully it is raw egg but it would be great to say goodbye to it nonetheless. Your news is encouraging! NP.
