We went for the little mans “pre-school” allergy appointment at the hospital yesterday. Again they took blood to carry out some more RAST blood tests and we will get those results next week. He was also weighed to see if he had reached the weight acceptable (14 kg) for a junior EpiPen, he was 500g under. Luckily since he doesn’t start school til September and also because the Dr thought it too high a risk for him not to have one they prescribed them for him anyway. Phew! 🙂
Since he had a recent reaction to nuts (read more here) we are relieved to say the least that he now has medication that can be given quickly in an emergency.
Now I am only minutely less stressed about him starting school! 😉
