Rylie - allergy testing update

Rylie hasn't been tested for allergies since she was 2, so today she went back to Dr. Ghory for skin-prick testing, and to review the results of her RAST (blood) test. Jamie took her and said she was not happy about the skin prick testing on her back, and she was really squirming. They were there for about 2 hours. I was glad to get a break and not have to be the one to take her - thanks Jamie.

The results are the same. Still severely allergic to peanuts, and still moderately allergic to milk and tree nuts. The peanut levels indicate that she will not outgrow this allergy. She will more than likely outgrow the milk allergy, but not anytime soon. We also found out that she is moderately allergic to shellfish.

I was hoping her milk numbers would be lower, but at least it's not life-threatening. Looks like we'll just keep doing what we're doing.
