Allergy Testing

Tomorrow is the big day for Zack (little does he know). We'll find out if Gabby's peanut and tree nut allergy made it's way to her brother too. Gabby's allergy is very severe and because of that, our pediatrician and the allergist suggested that we keep both the boys from nuts of any kind until they could be tested. Testing of this sort is good to do at about 3.

Testing takes between 2 and 3 hours so it's going to be a long afternoon. ShaSha is coming to watch Gabby and Josh while Zack and I spend the afternoon with Dr. Berger. Oh, he's SO not going to be happy with me...and it's going to be a LONG afternoon.

Update: He's not allergic! To anything! There was no screaming, throwing a fit or even 1 tear. He was a trooper and as a treat on the way home, we stopped for Icees and Peanut M&Ms. He thought he was big stuff eating nuts.
