Halloween Safety

The Halloween Breakfast Menu:
Canadian Bacon Full Moon
Bloody Fried Potatoes
Mochi Body Parts brushed with honey
Vampire Hemp Milk

We planned ahead this year and bought Jack safe treats and toys. He trick or treated the typical way for about 2 hours, then we switched out his bag. We have a family rule, no one eats anything till we get home, so there are no accidents. It was fantastic.

He ate:

Gummy Crabby Patties

Ring Pops

Pumpkin Peeps

Candy Corn

Light up Gummy Pumpkins

he got molding dough to play with

He got a rash from his face makeup, but that's it!!!

Hi!!! You don't know me, but I found your video about Jack on youtube and started crying because my son, Collin, also has FPIES. It took us a year to figure out what it was, and watching your little sweetheart in that video just brought so many painful memories back of that year. This blog sounds so much like my own life, it's so nice to know there is someone else out there who can relate. Collin's trigger foods are soy, oats, green beans, and rice, and maybe peanuts, corn and legumes too (I haven't tried these ones again since I cut out the first three). Anyway, keep doing what you're doing, I would love to join your support group!

We just found out our daughter has FPIES after several episodes and not understanding what in the world was going on. We have an appt. with a GI specialist for the first time tmrw morning (ya, late notice... it was tmrw or a couple months from now!)... do you have any last minute advice on what all we should ask at this appt or anything else that would be good to know going into this?? The GI doc said they are "familiar" with FPIES, but we don't know if they know much about it or not... also, where did you get the ATOPY patch testing done (with an allergist??)... is that something that was really helpful for you guys?? THanks for your help and your blog!!
