Our 2 Week Re-Check

Yesterday we had Logan's 2 week check-in @ The Allergy and Asthma Center. For the record, the staff there are AMAZING. Seriously! Over these two weeks I have been shocked at the difference we have witnessed! I never in a million years would have thought that allergies/asthma would have been the underlying cause of most of his problems (minus the developmental delays).

The allergist checked him out and his lung function has improved 15% since the last time we were in the office. His Advair has made a WORLD OF DIFFERENCE! It's awesome! I love knowing that he is able to get a restful nights sleep now... I still have yet to get used to the routine! I probably wake up 3-4 times a night checking on him to make sure he is breathing (because his noisy breathing is GONE)! :)

We have officially been corn-free for 2 weeks. It is going great, not near as hard as it was initially. We are actually saving quite a bit of money because it is so.much.easier to eat at home and know exactly what he is getting vs. doing a whole lotta research before going out to eat OR trusting that the waiter/waitress will really check the ingredients! We are now allowed to do a "corn challenge" if we want. It is where you introduce different corn derived ingredients one at a time and document which ones causes symptoms and what type of symptoms. My husband and I have just decided we know he is allergic, he is making progress, so we will wait to do that for a while. :)

Thanks for taking the time to read about our Logan! He sure is making progress and this makes us SUPER HAPPY! :) See ya soon!

By the way...check out the circles under his eyes!!! They are slowly fading!!! :)
