Today I am thankful for specific answered prayer! God answered my prayer today, and we found out some of the things that my son is allergic to! The appointment went very well. We found out that he is allergic to dogs, cats, dust mites and alternaria, which is a type of mold. So, our dogs have to go outside now, which is heartbreaking, but, we'll live. I had to buy him allergen matress and pillow protectors, and his comforter has to go, or be washed in hot water twice a week. Plus, the curtains had to come down and be replaced with blinds. When he's old enough to do a more in-depth test, we'll know if we need to replace the carpet with wood or vinyl flooring, or treat the carpet with an allergen spray. The good news is...no food allergies! YAY!
The doctor said that he's too young for shots if we can avoid it, so for now he just put him on a stronger daily medicine and kept the nasal spray. He also believes he has more going on than just allergies, but he's still too young to find out exactly what. Possibly asthma, or something else. He'll have another appoinment in 4 months. I'm just so happy and thankful to know exactly what he's allergic to so far! And what he's not allergic to! We'll be starting his supplements tomorrow.
