Another Allergist - Hopefully the Last

Today we took Nathan to a new allergist, she was a referral. It was more of a "routine" appointment, we told her what his allergies were (so no diagnosing for her), she asked us some questions, read his previous charts (from previous allergists) and said "hmmm milk looks promising." I don't think so but will wait and see what the tests say, I am not getting my hopes up. The problem with the blood tests are false/positives. I feel the only true way to know if he is allergic to have him eat the food,  but also his blood test numbers need to be low enough to even think of giving him a food - she agreed.

She then decided the best thing to do is a blood test from Nathan and get the results from his previous test and compare. We need to find out which allergies went up/down or stayed the same by the levels. We went to the lab and were told it would take 2 weeks for the results. So we wait....
