Today's picture is very fitting for our day
McKenna spent hours in these sunglasses after she found them under the abyss of our couch and wore them right through her favorite meal of bagels and cream cheese. So the reason this picture is so fitting is because it was taken before her doctors appointment this afternoon.
The one where we got all of her test results back.
The one where they told us that she is allergic to wheat
and we need to see an allergy specialist because the list is probably even longer.
No more bagels and cream cheese for my little peanut.
We have been in the special diet world for a while because of Ashlyn. She has been casein free since she was 8 (with great results) but McKenna's allergy is a little different. It is an actual allergy where as Ashlyn's is a food sensitivity that we manage to help decrease symptoms and behaviors related to autism. Ultimately two different problems with the same fix.
Am I making any sense at this point? It's late and we don't sleep in our house.
So now add in no wheat and no eggs and I am at a loss for what to feed Ms. McKenna, kicking myself for getting rid of my bread-maker and wondering how I am going to keep the never ending food-sharing that goes on around here at bay. Poor Parker, his wheat, dairy and egg days are probably numbered too.
