soy mishap
soy reared its ugly head. we had gone to the hospital yesterday to get blood drawn as we are instructed not to go to a local lab as they "will screw it up" After they took 9 or 10 vials of blood isabella was completely depleted. we went to the cafeteria and the french fries were in veggie oil. we get home and 10 mins before bed bell says i feel funny and my tummy is itchy. Holy poop she was so blistered and hivey and red it was so bad. of course i freak out didnt want to give the epi pen as that is a guaranteed stay. I loaded her with benadryl cream and hydrocortizone and kept vigil all night long. needless to say i called the hospital and the fries were in soybean oil. UGGGGHHHHH so mad but she is okay and that is all that matters. just needed to vent. This is an endless viscious cycle!!!!

Mom to two refluxers. DS 4.5 years, on prevacid since 5 weeks. Trial wean this summer...fail. Intolerant of dairy and soy DD born Nov 2010. Currently on zegerid. Had stomach malrotation & surgery at 9 months. Avoiding dairy/soy with her while BFing.
Ugh! I am sorry that happened. So frustrating! I hate how they use soy in everything. My DS isn't allergic to it, just intolerant. But it is so hard having it added into so many products.
