Alyna Update

We have big taking Alyna to a doctor in Cleveland for the past couple of months. She is trying an alternative treatment for allergies that she has had great success with on her. This week, we had a huge breakthrough. Alyna was able to put egg on her skin with no reaction, then in her mouth with no reaction, and then she was able to eat a brownies and rolls with eggs cooked in them!! This is a huge thing for her considering previous to the treatment she would react by even being touched by eggs. It is a pretty exciting time for us. It is still early in the treatments, but this progress is pretty promising. Please keep Alyna in your prayers that her progress will continue! Here is a photo of her eating her first brownie baked with eggs!

Wow! What's the treatment, Kensie? Clark still has anaphylaxis with eggs, milk, peanuts and seseme seeds. . he's a level two for a bazillion other things. But, those are the worst. Ya. .egg on the skin. No bueno.

Emily, here is Dr. Cheryl's website with all the information on what the treatment is. She is the same doctor that Cole goes to for his autism, but she treats other things as well. I hope you can find someone in your area that is doing this, it seems like an amazing treatment. You might even call up to Dr. Cheryl, she may know someone in your area. And if you ever need anyone to talk to, please e-mail me. I know how hard having a food allergic child can be, hopefully someday Clark will be free of them. Anyway, here is the website...

Wow that's great! I'll have to pass that website onto my sister... her little girl has a peanut allergy and she's afraid her new baby might have allergies as well!

That's exciting! I hope it continues to work for her. That has to be scary having such serious allergies. Good luck with the treatment.
