Day 9

Good Monday morning!

Things are continuing to go very well and smoothly!  Lastnight I had a small green salad with carrots, tomato and cucumber as well as oil & vinegar dressing.  I didn't anticipate any issues, and I was right.  I'm glad to get some veggies back into the mix.  Did I mention that I might never eat another sweet potato again ;)

My hands and feet feel super.  I no longer walk funny, with a limp.  My hands work first thing in the morning.  I can change my baby, empty the dishwasher and open jars!  They are still weak, but they work!

Today for breakfast I made  a mixed berry (sans strawberry) shake with 1/2 banana and mango.  Maybe too much "new" food to try but I did anyway.  I blended it all up with some flax and it was yummy. 

I'm getting to the point where I need to throw in some dairy and wheat to see what happens!  I suppose I am delaying the inevitable.

When my baby was 3 months old, he had severe eczema- I mean, go to the hospital numerous times severe.  Then a little later, when he was 6 months old, he went into anaphylactic shock after ingesting some skim milk powder in a baby cereal.  He was then tested and we were shocked to find out he was allergic to: dairy, wheat, eggs, all nuts, soy & sesame.  It was overwhelming to say the least.  I remember we kept saying "where did he get this from, we both don't have allergies?"  Hmmmmm...well now I am rethinking all of that and I'm guessing that my poor baby got them from MOI!  I guess it's still premature to assume but I can't help but think that. 

We'll see in the days to follow!!!
