And wow do we feel fine! December 31, 2022. Where in the world has time gone? If you so kindly subscribed to this blog 3 or even 4 years ago, when I posted weekly, you know what a roller coaster of a journey we’ve had. Two boys, two FPIES diagnoses, a long list of triggers … Continue reading It’s the end of the (FPIES) world as we know it…
A diagnosis, but not a definition.
Hi all! Happy May 4th, or as a very few of us may know it, happy national FPIES day! I took a quick jaunt into my archives to see if I’d previously commemorated this day. (There’s also global FPIES day, on October 14th.) But of course, two years ago I had a five day old, … Continue reading A diagnosis, but not a definition.
Shots in arms and Epi-pens in hand… here we come, world!
Happy Tuesday, friends! If you’re here in Minnesota with me, you already know it’s a gray, chilly day... again. The jury is sequestered and deliberating the Chauvin trial. Our city is locked down and boarded up, awaiting justice, outrage, or both. Covid numbers are rising again, but so are vaccination numbers. It feels like we’re … Continue reading Shots in arms and Epi-pens in hand… here we come, world!
👋 hi long lost friends! 👋
Once upon a time, I blogged every Tuesday. The ups and downs of FPIES, the trials of allergy life, the joys and exhaustion of life with two under two. And then... COVID. And weeks became a blur, and every day was Tuesday, and time didn’t pass it at all. But now, finally, some light seems … Continue reading 👋 hi long lost friends! 👋
Guess who’s back…back again…
(Please join me in having that throwback gem stuck in your head for at least the next 48 hours.) Hiya friends! It's been a long time since I posted here. 6 months and a couple of days, to be exact. If we're newly acquainted, via Instagram, FPIES, or otherwise, I'm so glad you've made it … Continue reading Guess who’s back…back again…
Rashes, and hives, and mysteries, oh my!
Hiya friends. Welcome back. It's been a minute since I've had updates that I was ready and willing to share! Still wrestling with a lot of life and COVID and unlearning over here, but as it turns out, FPIES and allergies don't care how stressed you are. Lincoln, my two year old and often more … Continue reading Rashes, and hives, and mysteries, oh my!
Here and there, but definitely not everywhere. (#COVID)
Hello food allergy friends! As always, I so appreciate your following along in our FPIES journey. It's been quiet on the site lately, but I just wanted to share a few major updates with you! I know many of you are navigating your own allergies, FPIES diagnoses, and food trials, and I want to make … Continue reading Here and there, but definitely not everywhere. (#COVID)
On Doing Hard Things.
Happy Tuesday, food allergy friends and family. I sure hope it's happy wherever you are, hunkered down or beginning to slowly venture out your door again. Minnesota is beginning to slowly reopen- although less slowly than we may have expected- and it's bringing a whole new level of anxiety to my home. It may well … Continue reading On Doing Hard Things.
Grow, Baby, Grow!
Hi friends! Long time no see! Hope this Cinco de Mayo finds you well, albeit quarantined, and enjoying a margarita (maybe not a Corona? 😉) I’ve been slowing down on social media and blogging lately as I try and figure out how to be the best mama I can be, but I sure do find … Continue reading Grow, Baby, Grow!
Hello friends! I can hardly believe we're past the midpoint of April. What a weird, weird world we're in...time is flying by and standing completely still all at once. I don't know about you, but I already felt that way pretty often with young kiddos... and the pandemic and stay at home orders have compounded … Continue reading What’s Next?
