Say yes to peanuts

We had our much anticipated peanut challenge on Monday.  When I say much anticipated I mean I actually couldn't sleep the night before.  I was worried about him having a reaction, I was worried about him not wanting to eat any peanut butter, I was just worried.  This from a mom with a 2.5 year old kid with a genetic disease.  It takes a LOT to worry me. 

I read up on what to expect, a possible 4 hour long test where they start by touching peanut butter, then bringing it to your lips and then finally eating what is considered a serving.  Then they want you to wait between each test to see if you have any sort of reaction. 

We were prepared, we brought crayons and coloring books and our DVD player.  The Doctor came in with peanut butter on a spoon and said " His blood work shows him with no peanut allergy so lets just try this"  Um okay.  So Max ate his spoonful of peanut butter while watching Mickey Mouse Club House and it was all very uneventful.  Max wouldn't eat a second spoonful of peanut butter so we had to go and get a recess peanut butter cup.  The horror!  Max has never had one before, he loved it.

So basically we can have peanut butter.  It's a little scary I have to admit.  We have shunned it for so long.  But this opens up some things for us.  Granola bars for one thing were off limits.  Anything that said may contain peanuts we really weren't supposed to eat, although some times we did anyway.  The holidays and random events will be easier.  We don't have to worry about someone bringing in peanut butter cookies or what is in his trick or treat bag like we did before. 

The next 2 nuts on the list are Cashews and Pistachios.  We are going to do a food trail on Cashews first.  Even though these are less common nuts, if a product says may contain tree nuts and isn't specific to which nuts we have to assume it could make him sick. 

My favorite bible verse is about worrying.  My favorite is the last line.
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?

To bad I didn't think of this the night before the food challenge
