Living in the Know

It is such a relief to know what we know now.
Boomba eats Milk, Beef, Soy, Gluten/Wheat, Coconut, and Garlic free these days.
No wonder we couldn't control his reactions.
We are expecting our Environmental Oral Drops to come in a few weeks and we've heard nothing but promising things about those.

We were straight up told that reactions would be a regular part of our life. Now that we know Boomba is not only reacting to Casein, we can also know that many of his reactions will not be because of casein, and therefore less likely to be Anaphylactic.

So. Though our diet has changed drastically to say the least, and though our grocery bills have increased, we are very pleased.

We are pleased to be living in the know.

It was such a scary place to be, wondering "Why is he reacting?", "What can he eat?", "What do we do now?".

It is an interesting thing though, to be pregnant and to deal with cravings in this limited diet. Oh yeah.


We are currently sneaking up on 15 weeks and due near July 23rd.

For all of you wondering, yes that is the -day- we were planning making our move back to Husband's Grad School. The one that's over 1,ooo miles away.

They said I was crazy moving 7oo miles when I was 32 weeks pregnant with Boomba.
Ya'll ain't seen crazy yet.

We're gunna take this boat train magic show on the road pregnant(or newly not pregnant) and allergy free!

Stay tuned.

God has surely blessed us.
