Howlin' good fun!

We took the kids down to Busch Gardens today, and it will probably be the last trip this season. We rode a bunch of rides, saw one full show and a half of another and took the pumpkin express train ride. All in all, it was a really fun afternoon and evening, and the kids are wiped out!

Prior to our Howl O'Scream fun, Grayson and I went to the allergist to see what was causing his hives. Well, he is now MORE allergic to pollen, dust mites, mold, and all sorts of growing things. He is also pretty severely allergic to cats, milk and soy and there was a small positive to peanut as well. Whoopee!

This means we need to go back on a color coded food system in the house. We are tree nut free for Haven, but milk and soy are harder as they are in everything. We will be cutting out straight milk, and limiting foods that contain milk and soy as well. Limited yogurt and cheese are okay and may actually help. One peanut exposure per week, just to see what develops, and we head back in six weeks to see how things are going. With his asthma issues, the cats are a concern, we will try to treat with allergy meds, but they may be moving out. We are taking this in stride, hell we can handle food allergies. The doctor did tell me that this means even more food from scratch and local foods, and that if his allergies keep getting worse, we will need to run bloodwork. Just another day, and onward to tomorrow!
