Allergy Recheck 2012

We found out about Colin's allergies in June 2009 after his first allergy panel testing. He gets rechecked every year to see if there are any changes - better or worse. This will be his fourth round of panel testing and I realized that I have never taken my camera to document the process! Here's a little sneak peak:

The picture on the left is right after the initial pricks. They tested for Egg Yolks,  Egg Whites, Wheat, Soy and Control (and I'm not sure what the last one was for because we avoided Peanut altogether the year). The picture on the right shows the flare ups after a few minutes of waiting. All but the control site showed a reaction. No changes to his allergies this year so we will keep avoiding those foods as usual!

To keep him busy during the waiting time, we brought along Legos (his new fav) and BOB books- these things are awesome, by the way! Colin can already read books 1 & 2 on his own. 

And we had this little pumpkin to entertain us!
