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!!!!!!

Congrats! Great News!

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!

On Feb 22, 2007

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!!

On Feb 22, 2007

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.

john is 3 1/2 he has been allergic to dairy his entire life. as an infant he had constant vomiting and diareah, untill we discovered the dairy allergy.

i understand chanada when she says she misses dairy because she is nursing a dairy alleric child. i did to with him. it was a very long 20 months. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

thanks for the kind words every one! the mac and cheese and chocolate pudding were great! erin

To me, this is so much bigger news than outgrowing peanuts! CONGRATS!!! I can't even imagine there would be a day where dairy is in our lives again...it would dramatically change our lives. How wonderful! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Excellent! I'm very happy for you!

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.
