About Me

My photo
This is a blog for my son. He has a rare auto immune disease that causes his body to attack food like it would a virus making it impossible for him to eat most any foods with out getting very very sick. This is a record of our ups and downs, doctor visits and procedures. Our trial and error life of finding out what foods are safe for our son to eat and eliminating the ones that are not from his life.

Green light!

I just got a call from John's GI specialist in Greenville, SC.
We have the green light to start food trials! 
After 8 months of a strictly elemental diet we are finally going to start re-introducing solid foods to John's diet.
We have the choice of Apples or Pears. Doug and I have decided on apples since they can be substituted in a lot of recipes for oil and eggs. You can make a  lot of things with apples!!
Lots of vitamins in apples too.
So now I am on the hunt for local/organic apples and digging out my super baby food cook book.
I'll be back soon with an update!


  1. Yahoo!!! That's great! Come on apples - don't fail John!

  2. Yay!! So exciting! Praying he does well.

  3. congratulations! What wonderful news for your family!
    Yours, Dr. Johnston & the team at Asthma & Allergy in Charlotte
