turning 5

turning 5 means a bunch of doctors appointments.  yesterday's annual "well-visit" went great.  (more to come on that) and today brought zack's fifth round of allergy back prick testing.  it's so much tougher now, since he knew what to anticipate and was telling me the whole way there that he didn't want to do the test.  he was an absolute trooper, though and didn't make a peep once we were at the hospital.  sadly, the test did itch/burn a whole lot and he cried because of that.  after 10-15 min. it was over and he was back to his old self.  allergy update is:

still allergic to ALL nuts (peanuts and all tree nuts).  that's the two rows of three on the right you can see.  very allergic.

we got him tested for apples because he sometimes coughs when eating them (and mom is allergic to apples) and chicken because he has complained that his "neck hurt" when eating chicken nuggets before.  zack knows himself best because sure enough, he is allergic to chicken!  luckily, he can still have apples (many times he eats the apples in a happy meal, with the chicken nuggets -- so that might explain the coughing).

still allergic to egg and peas.

 later that day.... a pic zack took of us.  sweet guy...!

that's the update on zack's allergies till next fall!
