He's grown 4 inches in the past year and weighs a solid 50 pounds. I'd beg to differ with that number. Try picking this kid up and you'll see what mean!
While we were there I had a few dietary matters to discuss. There are certain foods that seem to give the little guy the runs. I think I've narrowed down that list of foods and most of them appear to be milk related.
The doctor wrote us a prescription to have blood work done. Yuck!
GG was at her Grandma's that day. With 1 less kids, going to the lab would be so much easier. I tried to explain to Little Dude what was going to happen. What I got from him was 10 minutes of repeating the same thing over and over...
Let's go and not get this done with!
Poor kid! But we needed to know!
Yesterday the pediatrician finally called with the results. Little Dude has a very slight, nothing to worry about allergy to egg whites.
Excuse me? The boy who had dippy eggs for dinner the night before with no adverse reactions is allergic to egg whites?!
I'm not saying the doctors are wrong, but this kid eats eggs and things with eggs quite often. I guess I could really start to pay attention to what he eats that may contain the culprit, but milk is not on that list. I guess I'll have to bring this topic up when I take GG in for her appointment in a few weeks.
Does anyone have a kid with an egg white allergy? Is there something I am missing and need to pay more attention to?
Until next time....
