Hurray for so many food challenges!  Ajas, do you think it is walnut/pecan?  The two are highly related and if you pass one they often challenge the second one immediately thereafter.  Either way, I hope everyone here will pass.

DS has his baked egg challenge at 1.  I just made the muffins.  Its so weird to have eggs in the house.  I don't care for them and only ever used them to bake, so once I had 2 kids with egg allergies, I just stopped buying them.  DS is so hopeful.  I am so nervous.  This is his 3rd try at baked egg.  DH is taking him.  Prayer and good thoughts are greatly appreciated! 

I cancelled DD's challenge bc she is too busy and she gets so anxious.  We will reschedule hers in the new year sometime.

Good luck to him.

He's developed a few hives tonight.  I am not sure if its from the egg - reactions in the past are usually stomach aches.  I guess I have to call Mt. Sinai tomorrow.  His challenge started at 1 and the hives appeared around 7:30.  I am a wreck.

He seems totally fine.  Only one was itchy.  they seem to be cleaning up with Zyrtec and he tells me he gets random hives sometimes...
