Allergist's Report on Luke

Yesterday, we received the blood test results on Luke. Poor guy is allergic to just about everything, according to the tests:

  • Grass

  • trees

  • ragweed

  • dust mites

  • eggs

  • milk

  • corn

  • peanuts

  • wheat

  • soy

  • shrimp

We're going to need to consult with a nutritionist to figure out what he can eat. Also there will be another test, since not everything was tested and peanut allergies are an indicator of allergies to other legumes (peas, beans, lentils) which are an important source of protien. We're hoping he won't be allergic to broccoli (who isn't? ) because with dairy out of the picture we need alternative sources of calcium.

This explains a lot about the awful rashes he's had--but we still need a lot of prayer and wisdom. Thanks for your continued prayers for Luke!
