My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

I'm in major shock at the moment. I just got off the phone with Kayla's allergist. Her dairy allergy blood test results are in. NEGATIVE!!!!!!!!!!!! I am in complete shock right now. I could not let my mind dream that she may actually outgrow it.

Granted - we have a long way to go. Saturday, she will have her skin test and then if that goes well, she'll have her food challenge that day too. Even if that goes well, it will be a slow introduction of dairy into her diet. So that we don't overload her system, PLUS in the past month she's really learned that certain foods can make her sick. So we now would have to overcome her knowing she's eating something that used to make her sick.

I'm still trying to stay realistic in that we may not be out of the woods yet. But things are looking really positive! Please send tons of good thoughts and prayers her way!

That's fantastic news! I was just about to ask you, if there is a possibility your girls could grow out of their allergies. How relieved you must feel!

Praying all goes as well with the other tests!!

This is great news! Looks like there will be a new member of the Polar "Club" soon. Good luck to Kayla on Saturday.

NO WAY! SERIOUSLY? What a shock! Man...this is AWESOME! HOLY MOLY! I just can't get over it! WOW! What great news! So glad that she's at a younger age so she can re-learn to eat!
I am looking forward to seeing what Saturday brings!

That is such great news. I think I've mentioned that our oldest son has food allergies, too, and he's outgrown most now, at age 8. Things will definitely get better as time goes on, I think.
