Soy Challenge

Today Nathan had his Soy challenge, we were there for over 3 hours and during naptime so it was a difficult 3 hours. I brought Soy Pudding to use for the test, they put some on his lips waited 15 minutes to see if he would show a reaction, then on his tongue waited 15 minutes, then he actually ate a spoonful waited, etc. He really loved the Soy pudding and didn't show any kind of reaction. So he Passed! Yay!! This is great and opens a whole new door of foods he can eat. He can now drink Soy milk instead of the exspensive formula.

We go back for the Oat challenge next in 2 weeks. His numbers for Oats is higher than the numbers for Soy, so there is a less chance of passing - but I am optamistic.

The Dr. listed to his lungs and said Nathan sounded good and is breathing good. His Asthma has gotten better since they did the 5-day steroid 2 weeks ago. He is still on Flovent and Zyrtec daily.

They weighed him and said he weighs 22lbs 2oz., but he was weighed with all his clothes on and his shoes, so I am sure his weight is really less. His height is 31 and 1/4 inches.
