Zachary MANIA!

Remember Russell MANIA?  He was just over 3 months in those pictures.  Here are some similar pictures of Zachary at about 2.5 months old:

This kid just loves to smile!  He smiles with his whole face.  I can't get enough!  He's pretty easy to love.  <3 nbsp="" p="">

Scope #8

Caleb had his 8th scope this week.  He was eating a diet of everything but dairy, wheat, and soy, but his egg consumption was limited (and mostly in the form of baked eggs).  He was also getting a tiny piece of sacrament bread for the past few weeks at Church.  Technically this trial was for peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish.  We didn't eat a lot of fish/shellfish during the trial, but he did have a piece of Udi's toast with chocolate peanut butter for breakfast most mornings.

And he...



The only "diagnosis" on the pathology report was "FOCAL MILD MUCOSAL EPITHELIAL REACTIVE CHANGE" in his small bowel.  I'm not sure what that means, but there were no eosinophils, so that's great!

Since biopsies have shown that he reacts to dairy, and we had to stop his wheat trial before we could scope because he was symptomatic, that leaves SOY to trial.  He was put on soy formula when he was young, and we stopped after less than a week because he seemed to be reacting to it, so I'm not particularly optimistic that he'll pass his soy trial, but it's worth a shot!  Bring on the soy sauce, edamame, and tofu!
