Zoey’s skin is in such great shape lately, that Dr. Leung said we only need one bath/wrap aat night now. We slept to a luxurious 7am this morning and meandered in at a lazy 9 am.
We met with Nurse Amy ,Dr. Leung and Dr. Lanser and discussed remaining food challenges.
He said we could pick more tree nuts like pistachio or pecan, or move to baked milk and baked egg. I chose baked egg and baked milk because they are the biggest unknowns, and most likely found in foods.
If she reacts to any food they may administer an antihistamine, meaning an end to food challenges until Friday.
Before the food challenge, the actual muffin to be used in the challenge containing the baked egg is extracted and pricked on Zoey’s skin. She did react with a considerable wheel, but the head allergist decided to go ahead with the test to confirm, since it’s unknown whether Zoey has ever ingested egg. I agreed.
They started with .2 grams of the muffin. This is not .2 grams of baked egg, this is .2 grams of the muffin and all of it’s ingredients ( verified safe rice flour, soy milk, etc) including egg.
Literally a crumb.
Zoey was very excited about eating a muffin and disappointed it was so small.
She gobbled it right up and was fine for approximately 15 seconds before she started coughing. Her upper lip swelled and she was clicking her throat, but was fine 15 minutes after a dose of Benadryl. She was immediately monitored by Dr. Lanser and Nurse Amy and under observation for 2 hrs following the reaction. We called it a day and came back to Ronald McDonald House to play.
