We're Trying Again
No wait. May I should rephrase that. No, we are not trying to have another baby right now. But, we are trying to reintroduce dairy in Tinleigh's diet. In July when she went to the allergist and had all of the allergy testing done, dairy did not show up on either test. We were told that we could introduce it to her and see how she did. At the time I just really didn't want to deal with it, I felt she had been through enough.
So, yesterday Ainsleigh wanted a piece of cheese. Usually we don't let her have anything with dairy in it if Tinleigh is awake. I thought we have to try sometime, so I got a couple pieces of cheese out. Tinleigh scarfed it down. You would have thought she hadn't eaten in months. She loved it and then we waited, and waited and waited. And you know what happened?
Today, I went to the store. As I was walking by the yogurt section I thought maybe she will be able to tolerate this also. So I picked up a couple. Came home, put all the groceries away and pulled out a yogurt. If you could have seen the look on her face when she tasted it. Priceless. I didn't give her the whole container just maybe 9-10 small bites. Once again we waited and waited. As of right now, she has shown no signs of a reaction. We are taking things slow. I pray that she has outgrown it all together. I can deal with the soy and nut allergies. So we are taking baby steps. We go to Riley Children's Hospital on Monday for an appointment. I will update on how things are going next week. Let's pray it's a good update!
