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.

Kayla's test, etc.
I don’t have any good news. She reacted to the skin test and her reaction was the same as it was the last 2 times – double the size of the control. So…the waiting game begins again. He wants her back in 6 months, but with all her exposures (via skin test), before I have her exposed again, I want another blood test to make sure the skin testing has not sent her in the opposite direction. He agreed, so in November we’ll get blood work done and then possibly another skin test. This means that she is NOT in the 19% that outgrow a dairy allergy by the age of 4. Kayla did really wonderful though. She was such a big, brave girl. She hates the skin test, but sat with me without shedding a tear. She is growing up way too fast!

This morning, Kayla woke up and looked at a scratch she has on her big toe. It got a bit red which did not make her happy. After I got her the band aid she requested, she looked at it and said "I have to have Dr. W look at it."

Our trouble maker is at it again.

As soon as she saw me, she said, "I in trouble."

Most kids are singing Mary Had a Little Lamb or Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. We use to sing bed time songs like You are My Sunshine and Hush Little Baby. But Gramps got them into other songs. Now, every night before bed, the girls have to call him so he can sing their bedtime songs.

Such sweet songs. Too funny.

We've never had a skin test on Flynn (not for milk, we did one for environmental stuff). We only test her blood. I'm getting a little curious to see if her levels have changed at all. But she goes thru so much getting her blood tested. At Quest (the big lab here), even their pediatric 'needle' (I think they call it the butterfly) is too big. Each time, they've had to CUT her finger & squeeze out enough to fill however many vials they need.
It kills her.
It kills me.

Ahh, the things our girls go thru.

But they'll be stronger for it. And I think healthier too! ;)

Happy Momma's Day to a great Momma!

I was hoping to see good news and I am sorry it did not go that way.

Happy Mother's Day, Sue!

I'm sorry the test weren't what you were hoping for.

That is so sweet to hear them singing.

I'm so sorry about the tests - it's frustrating isn't it? I love the songs. My girls favorite songs right now are "Burning Ring of Fire" and an Irish (juice) drinking song that my husband taught them.

I am very sorry about the tests. It amazes me that she didn't cry, I would!

I love the photo of her in the sink.....they always know what NOT to do but they still do it....but then they pose and are cute and you let it slide.

I'm sorry the skin test didn't have a better outcome :( I can imagine how hard that is for Kayla to go through, and for you as mom to watch.

The videos were to precious!
