Well, hi there! Long time no see! I know. I’ve been MIA for a while. My Dad even asked me if I’d stopped blogging. That’s a big NO! I have not stopped blogging. I just…stopped writing for a bit. Honestly, I don’t know what’s going on with me. I’m so … Continue reading →
Yesterday’s recipe was a surprise to me. I wrote it and scheduled to post it last week – and forgot all about it! Just to give a little update, things are better. First, I want to thank you all for your concern, prayers, and insight. After the last post, I … Continue reading →
You know what is not fun? When you have to work the last week of August and the first two weeks of September, and life suddenly feels like “all work and no play”. That’s been my dilemma, and why I’ve been incredibly patchy on posting lately. There’s just too much … Continue reading →
Last year I shared about Banana Ice Cream. It truly is an awesome little treat, especially for the dairy intolerant/allergic! However, with the addition of goat milk in our diets, I was excited about making ‘real’ ice cream for my family. Only one problem: goat milk doesn’t have as much … Continue reading →
Turns out all my angst was for nothing. At least for now. The strawberry trial didn’t happen. Shortly after I shared that post, I gave Zac some fresh strawberries. He refused to even let one touch his lips! It was a straight repeat of the maple syrup trial the night … Continue reading →
I’m going to say something that will probably really raise the hackles of Food Allergy Mama’s everywhere: in a straight comparison, I love food allergies and I hate food intolerances. Of course I’d rather not deal with ANY of them, but let’s face it: allergies are easy in comparison. This … Continue reading →
Thursday we resumed the banana trial for Zac, and it went so well I decided I could go to work over the weekend. I found a trip to work on Saturday that was quick and “easy”, but worth a decent amount of money. I thought I’d share with you how … Continue reading →
(Strangely enough, I miss The Fresh Beat Band on Netflix…) Before I begin today’s post I want to share that I’m home, and my fears about too-soon weaning are fading into the ether. As soon as Zac saw me, he started pulling at my shirt for boobie. He immediately nursed … Continue reading →
FPIES stands for Food Protein Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome. It is a rare food allergy that affects the gastrointestinal system. Reactions are delayed onset, usually 2-4 hours after a trigger food is eaten, but sometimes even longer than that.
Children with FPIES have symptoms that range from severe (violent vomiting to bile and hypovolemic shock) to mild (bloody diarrhea, sleep disturbances).
There is no test for FPIES. It is diagnosed by clinical observation and ruling out other possibilities.
There also are no tests to determine trigger foods. FPIES parents must simply feed their child a food, then wait to see if they react.
