Today was filled with Doctor appointments for Addison. Yesterday she had an x-ray on her belly. Today she started the patch test. A patch test is done at the allergist to see what foods you are allergic to. She had one done last year to determine all the foods she couldn't eat. This one was done on the rest of the foods that are on her SPECIAL diet, which aren't many. We included onion and garlic among many other things, and let's just say you don't want to get to close. I can't image what the chicken, beef, onion, and garlic will smell like two days from now. So she goes back on Thursday for the Dr. to take the patches off and read the results. Then back again on Friday to read again. Finally she will be able to shower after that. Then we go back again on Tuesday for the finally reading and results. We are trying to figure out what is causing her so much trouble and pain. If too many more foods are restricted she will have to go on a hypoallergenic liquid diet. Not too much fun. Hopefully she will get good news and she will be able to add back in something. We will just hope and pray for good results. then back to the GI doctor in a couple weeks to try to determine what else we can do for Addison. She is going on missing 3 weeks of school this week. It makes it a little tough when you are in seventh grade to catch up.
