So long, Farewell.....

It looks like my dairy-filled days are over once again :( Rose has been reacting to dairy for almost a month now, and it only seems to be getting worse. My fear is that she will continue to develop stronger reactions if she continues to be exposed to it.
My plan is to go off of it for the next month and see if there is any change. If things are going well, I may try and test to see if its possible for me to have foods with dairy in them. Right now we see the biggest reaction when I eat straight dairy, like ice cream, milk in my cereal, etc. I am somewhat sad to be off of it again, although I really did not miss it that much when I avoided it. I have been off dairy for almost 2 1/2 years, and was enjoying the past 5 months of being able to eat it. Let's just pray that this is it for restrictions!

But I am excited to have some new nondairy options. I can now have coconut yogurt and coconut ice cream (which is delicious!) I think we have decided to buy an ice cream maker and make our own, as a pint is $5.00!

Tonight we are having a special last meal with dairy. I chose Italian, as I haven't had regular pasta in years! I cannot wait to eat it!

I know I have a bunch of catching up to do....I was hoping to do that this weekend but suffered from a migraine instead. I have to play catch-up tonight with studying...hopefully this week I can at least get some photos up!

I hope, too, that being off dairy will help little Rose for now, and maybe later she will be able to handle it. That would be an easy fix.

I can't wait to see some updated pictures of the girls. Hopefully the milk restriction will only be temporary.

I hope the dairy restriction helps. My stepmom was a vegan and it was amazing the things that she came up with to eat instead.
I'm a hopeless cheesaholic, I'm not sure I could do it! :)
