And I'm Back!

What a whirlwind these last couple of weeks have been!  I am happy to report that my trip to California went great and I am now back in possession of the majority of my belongings.  I do not have my dogs yet, but they have a ride arranged and should be here later this week!  Things are finally falling into place and I'm starting to feel more settled here.

Then we got the results back from Calla's allergy appointment.  She is indeed allergic to eggs.  Egg whites, to be specific (she doesn't not appear to react at all to egg yolks).  I was dreading this news initially, but having been avoiding eggs for almost two months now I'm realizing it's not as hard as I thought.  The doctor recommended we try one food that had eggs baked into it, so we tried pancakes and she had no reaction.  She's since had pancakes three other times with still no reactions.  We still need to avoid food that are primarily egg (and no flu shot), but if it's just one ingredient of many it seems she can tolerate it.  This week we will try another food with egg in it and see how it goes.  The doom and gloom we were first experiencing when this happened has worn off quite a bit and everything seems manageable now.  So that's very good news!

Otherwise things have finally calmed down around here quite a bit.  I'm home, unpacked, back at work, and my baby girl is healthy.  I couldn't ask for more.  :)
