~ Chayton the Trooper ~

My sweet 2 year old boy is such a trooper!! This little guy has been through so much and has had so many things at this age that Jackson never had. We had a scare with an anaphylactic reaction to eating boiled eggs on a salad... VERY SCARY!! He has previously had a reaction to milk after the age of 1. So, now it was time to have him allergy tested. I have been very nervous about this appointment but the testing went better than i expected. Jackson and I took him and it was a little wild at times. He did not cry at all and was very still while they were marking and applying the tests to his back. But waiting the 15-20 minutes for the results were not so calm. The testing did confirm that he was allergic to eggs so we have to avoid EGGS by themselves (scrambled, boiled, etc) and he can have things like cookies, brownies, etc that he has had before without an issue. But anything that contains eggs that he has not had (mayonaise, etc), he cannot have since we do not know if he will react or not. I DO NOT want to re-live friday night almost 2 weeks ago EVER. That was literally one of the scariest nights of my life.

This was what his back looked like as soon as she put all of the tests on there
This was 15 minutes in to the is hard to tell but #1 was eggs and it was the only one that had redness around the initial red dot...which indicates a + reaction. The other red dots look like the control (the O at the top right) and did not produce redness around the test.
And he was a HAPPY boy when we were home and it was all over!
