"I despise this"

Thursday ended up being an emotional day for me. We didn't celebrate my husband's birthday. We will do that this weekend.

I know I will blog about this. I just can't get my emotions in check enough to document my thoughts.

My son had an allergic reaction to the cake we were making to celebrate my husband's birthday. I let him and his brother eat some cake batter. My husband blogged about what happened. He said, "I despise this" - that pretty much sums up how I feel about food allergies.

How awful. I know all too well the feeling when you are waiting, watching what will happen next.

I'm glad that he's okay.

Have read Seth's blog, posted to my blog with a link to his post. So sorry the birthday celebrations were interrupted. SO GLAD to know everything is ok. Will look forward to hearing things from your pespective as well - whenever you are ready.
(By the way, if you like carrot cake, I have a good scratch recipe - no nuts!)

Oh Jane Anne, I can only imagine how you must be feeling. This is an allergy parents worst nightmare. My prayers are with you and I am praising God that your little guy is alright.

Has he ever been tested for eggs? Just wondering, it wasn't until later we found out about Rooney's egg allergy. I thought a couple of times he had a cross contamination reaction and it ended up being eggs.

I can not wait to hear what the company said about all of this...

I am keeping you in my prayers.

Oh, Jane! I am so, so sorry! The whole allergy thing really stinks doesn't it. I hope he's feeling better now. And that you're emotions can calm down. I know I'd be a basket case for days. How are YOU doing?
