News

This section of the website just serves to keep my regular readers updated on what is going on with my diet and my kids as well as general news items that would be of interest.

Since Korina is still having sleep issues, I have decided it is time to go Top 8 Free.  I have dreaded giving up wheat since that is a major staple in my diet but have decided it is time!  I am now avoiding milk, soy, egg, peanut, tree nut, wheat, fish, shellfish, and corn.

On that note, you will notice that some food items that call for flour will show up as wheat-free.  That is because I am using a wheat flour substitute.  I have been experimenting with oat flour (traditional oats ground in my coffee grinder) with some success.  Hopefully as I get more used to this wheat-free thing I will have some new options for those of you also avoiding wheat.

Hey loyal readers - I decided I needed a "News" section of the website so that I could keep you in the loop as my diet changes, new diagnoses come about, etc.

Ryland is now 29 months old and is a whopping 21 pounds.  We are in frequent contact with the GI to try to figure out what to do to get his weight up.  Back in July, they had done on upper endoscopy and found some eosinophils.  They put him on Prevacid and Neocate Junior to try to help with the eosinophilic esophagitis.  Recently, we put him on Periactin to stimulate his appetite.  He is still not gaining weight and we are kind of in limbo in deciding the next step.

Korina is almost 9 months old and is still battling food intolerances.  She has fallen on the charts to the tenth percentile, despite her birth weight of 8 pounds 6 ounces.  She is not tolerating any solids and is still waking up 3-4 times per night.  We are going to be seeing a GI next week to figure out what is up with her.

Hopefully as I keep the News section updated I will be able to share my journey of two kids with food intolerances.
