Thanks guys!

All the milk has been down for about an hour.  We have to wait two hours to see if it stays down.   ;D

She's smart.  Said she didn't like the taste, so they gave her chocolate milk.   [smiley=smart.gif]

Missially, they are just giving her cow's milk in the hospital to see if she reacts, as they suspect she outgrew the allergy.  Nothing more than that but could open a whole new culinary world for her!  :)

Is she still doing okay?  No signs that she feels unwell?

What are you doing to keep her from getting restless while you wait?

She's allowed to eat now.  The doctor said she is as good as passed, though we have to wait another hour.

We now start to slowly introduce milk into her diet so that her body starts to produce the enzyme to break down lactose, then in a few weeks, she can go whole hog! 

This will reduce our food bill a good bit.  Her alternative milk and cheese is soooo expensive.  When the baby stops nursing, we'll have 2 out of 4 with no allergies.  And hopefully he won't be far behind in outgrowing his!  Then we'll have 3 out of 4 and will only have to worry about gluten free.  WAAHOOO!

Took the ipad loaded with Peppa Pig.  That satisfied her for a while.  Now games and puzzles!

Yay!  I'm so happy for her!  And now you can start introducing her to all the tasty things, and seeing her reaction to them!  Fun times!

If you made gluten-free pasta and regular wheat pasta and cooked them in the same water, would a gluten-intolerant person fall ill?  Like how far out of your way would you need to go to protect him from your food?

But one gluten-free person sounds easy after what you guys are juggling.  I hope you get there soon!

Cross contamination is a big deal.  We all eat gluten free pasta as it tastes just fine.  Expensive, yeah, but easier having one pot of pasta.

We have separate toasters, (fake) butter, jam, peanut butter, etc.  Anything you might dip your knife into before spreading we own two of.  We always cook the gluten free item at the top of the oven and the gluten item below (so no gluten can drop onto the gluten free one).   It's really easy for us as we have our system in place.  I realise how odd we are when we have people over.  lol!   ;D

For example if we go to a restaurant and the chips are gluten free but fried in a fryer that also fries gluten containing items, he cannot eat the chips.

Yeah cross contamination is a huge with gluten for someone with coeliac.   My sister had to go buy all kinds of new cooking stuff when she stayed with us.

Ugh... I'm glad my husband and I don't have to deal with that.  We don't have the space or equipment to manage cooking around a special diet (well, we do omit onions, but he swears he doesn't miss them, and it's easier to leave them out than make a special onion-free portion... plus, I'd wantcto eat the tastier one if it existed, and he's very good at enforcing my dietary restrictions).
