Aw, Nuts!

Last week we took Rohan to his allergist for a six month checkup. When we took him there in October, we found out he was allergic to cashews and pistachios. We have to carry Epi-Pens with us at all times, and we have to be vigilant in what he consumes. It's a serious--potentially deadly--issue. When we went in this time, I asked for him to be re-tested, and the nurse was surprised by this request. Children generally don't outgrow tree nut allergies, so there's no real reason to do a re-test. But, I've been using Reiki and positive visualizations and felt confident that his allergies would be greatly diminished.

Well, he didn't react at all to the pistachios! The doctor was shocked and said he'd never had this happen. He's not going to pronounce Rohan as being non-allergic to pistachios until he tests negative again in six months. That's fine, of course. He's a medical doctor, so it's his job to be cautious. My job as a mom and a Reiki pracitioner is to be optimistic and to continue doing what I'm doing. I'm confident that next time we take Rohan in, he won't react to any allergens. :o)
