More Good News...

I've got more good news to share, but first an apology. It's been ages since I last posted. Life right now is spinning precariously close to out of control. We're house hunting in a area about 50 minutes from where we currently live. It's not a familiar area so I'm spending hours researching homes, neighborhoods, schools, churches, etc. It's a big move for us taking us away from a community that we've lived in for the last 14 years. Keeping up with the latest news in the food allergy world has taken a back seat to finding a house that our family can call home.

Now, for the good news, and it's not that we've found a home. Hopefully, that will come soon. The good news, no, make that great news, is that I've just received Abigail's latest IgE numbers. It's down another 2 1/2 points to 6.6!! Her baseline number (number she started the peanut sublingual trial with) was 10.4. After 4 months of taking the daily peanut protein drops, it peaked to 16.7. At the one year mark, it had dropped to 12.9. In January of this year it was 9.28, and in June, 6.6. We're heading in the right direction. She's got another year to go, and I'm feeling confident we can get there!
