The Incredible, Edible... Allergy?

Kelsey's been having problems with stomach discomfort for some time now.  We finally thought to run the simple blood test for common food allergies.  The result?

Egg whites.  She's allergic to egg whites.

Why couldn't it have been something that was NOT one of the few proteins she'd eat??

Don't get me wrong - I'm so glad we know.  But the girl loves her eggs.  Scrambled, deviled, hard boiled, you name it.  And of course, the many, many things that eggs are in - pancakes, cookies, and who knows what else.  Guess I'm going to become an expert label-reader, eh?

So Jax's skin acts up when it comes into contact with eggs, but he can still eat pancakes, cookies, etc... just not batters. Maybe you'll be lucky like this?

really? I've never heard of egg allergy giving a reaction like Kelsey's. Normally its hives or a skin reaction. Hmm....

Well, she's had hives a couple of times, but what prompted the tests in the first place is the constant stomach trouble she's been having... I'll keep investigating :-)
