Rush Day... The Adventure Begins!

This morning began innocently enough, waking early, tickling the kids awake and the mad rush and tumble that is our morning process of getting ready. This morning was complicated by the fact that the five of us were in a small (but very nice) hotel room, with only one bathroom. I cannot imagine how we survived in the Edwards house with only one shower.

This morning was also complicated by frayed nerves as we prepared to begin the peanut Desenatization treatment. Trusting doctors is a difficult thing, especially when you are trusting them with your first born.

Regardless, we made it out of the room on time and drove a distance that we probably should have walked and arrived at the Southwest Allergy and Asthma Clinic just before nine o'clock.

After a decade of avoiding peanuts, and protecting Nathan from situations were he might be exposed, it was a little anticlimactic to watch as he downed a tiny bit of liquid that apparently contained some minute amount of peanut powder.
Even though the medicine is the same poison that we have avoided like the plague, he handled it like a man and so far has had no adverse side effects.

In just a bit, they should be in with a second dose. Keep on praying.
