Epipen Free

As of March 1st we are an epipen free home! 

For the past three years BG has suffered from (and now outgrown!) a peanut and an egg allergy! I'm so thankful for him and for us - food allergies can be so scary! We waited the 12 months suggested after final oral challenge (he sat in a doctors office eating eggs/peanuts under crazy supervision increasing dosage every 15 minutes until it was clear that he no longer had any allergy symptoms) before finally emptying our epipens and recycling the cartridges! 

One less thing to carry and one less worry for all of us! Cheers to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!
