Riley had his peanut challenge today. He passed with flying colors.
We took our own peanut butter sandwich to the doctor's office for an 8:00 a.m. picnic. When I told Maddie and Riley that we were going to have breakfast with Dr. L, Riley's response was, "Dr. L no look Riley's penis!" That caused Maddie to become concerned and fret, "No Dr. L look Maddie's 'gina!" I reassured them that there would be no checking of the privates, just some breakfast, chit-chat, and toys.
It was rather nerve-wracking to hand Riley his sandwich, especially after the nurse reminded me to have my EpiPen at hand "just in case." With my heart in my throat, I handed the sandwiches over and crossed my fingers. And absolutely nothing happened except that Riley scarfed that thing down like he'd never been fed, as did Maddie. Dr. L did paperwork and such at her desk in the exam room, and we all just hung out for thirty minutes. I was even given a cup of coffee! Lucky, lucky me!
So bring on the peanut butter at our house. And we're cleared to try tree nuts, too, since Riley's RAST screen came back negative for those and there's no reason to think that Maddie will have an issue.
Of course, Dr. L did advise us to try tree nuts for the first time during office hours, you know, just in case.
