Well, it is 1:21 am, and I had intended to write up a post. I am too beat though to get to what I really wanted to. That will have to wait until tomorrow.
Things are okay. I think I am in a waiting pattern. Not letting myself feel anything now, one way or the other. I would guess that some might think lots of stuff was good news, but that is what I thought of the beginning of last year too.
Thanks to you guys though for thinking of me. You all are the best!!!!
And, you know, I really do have some stuff that I want to put here. I think it is important. Just like the whole safe snack issue, lots of stuff has happened that really has kind of altered, or shaped, squished around maybe?, my thoughts on things.

I think it's good, in general, to be cautious. . .

There is a fairly good article (IMPHO) about food in the classroom in the new issue of Allergic Living Magazine which I received to-day. I checked their website tonight to see if I could link the article here, but their old issue is still up. It does contain a couple of quotes from the woman from FAAN (A. M-F or A. F-M - I'm sorry, I can't remember her name right now).
I'll try to at least get the quotes on here over the next few days.
Allergic Living Magazine also has some really great links to a lot of resources, products, etc. (sorry, gvmom, nothing to do with this discussion) and I'll try and post those as well.
Also, a Canadian grocery store chain (so no name really) has come out with a peanut free breakfast bar.
Lots of stuff to post from the mag - but I really wish that one article had been on-line now.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

It's good to hear things didn't start off with a horrible bang. Thanks for the update.

Just wanted to say everyone's input in this thread really got my wheels going in the right direction. I'm happy to report that a letter from the school nurse is going out today informing parents that celebrations will be food-free for my ds' grade [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] Wish me luck after people see the letter!
gvmom, I'm getting the impression things are moving in the right direction for you. I hope that's the case, and it continues! Meg

For me and my journey with PA, this has been the [b] single most pivotal thread [/b]at PA.com.
