Mick does not come home until Thursday, so I have to try and hold the fort down until then, and even more importantly try and keep myself sane, and avoid too much bloodshed between the loving siblings.
I did however in all this chaos, find two things online that I thought were really great for the food allergy folk. They are articles where the author tries to tell others what they want them to know about food allergies.
The first is entitled
"Five Things an Allergy Kid Mom Wants You to Know"
I have to say, this is my absolute favorite article for trying to explain to the non-food allergic just what it is like to live like us, and why we do the things we do. My favorite quote is ,"If you think “food allergy moms” seem paranoid, it’s because we are."
Another good article is
"10 Things Families with Food Allergies Want You to Know"
On a totally unrelated note, the vet just called us to give us the results of Buster's (our pug)pathology report on his cancer. He had surgery on Friday, and is doing well, despite the giant scar on his belly. They think they got all of the cancer, and that it has not spread anywhere. YEA!!!!! I am so relieved. Thanks to everyone who thought good thoughts for us, and even to everyone who didn't. I am off to go give Buster an egg free, nut free dog treat.
