Kiddo Update and Pics

It's been a while since I updated everyone on how Kiddo is doing healthwise (for a bit of background, start with this post).  Things are actually going very well on that front!  His last endoscopy showed that he isn't allergic to bison so that was a great thing.  It means he can continue to eat bison burgers, roasts, steaks, etc. and that makes him VERY happy.  (As a reminder, the only other meat he could eat prior to this was shellfish, and they get boring very quickly when you are also a picky eater.)  Because of the latest test results the doctors think that his allergy to beef MAY have been a false positive.  So we are currently nearing the end of a three month trial of beef that appears to be going well.  Kiddo will have another endoscopy in May to determine if beef can stay in his diet or if he'll have to give it up.  To be honest, other than from a convenience and cost standpoint (beef is much cheaper and easier to get than bison), none of us really care if beef can stay or not - if it has to go, Kiddo can continue to eat bison and it is so incredibly similar to beef that he's good with it either way.

In hockey news, Kiddo's team didn't do so hot in their regular season but they came in 2nd place in a recent weekend tournament - woohoo!  Below are some pics from that weekend.  Kiddo is #9.





We recently went to see The High Kings, a completely fabulous Irish quartet.  We saw them a few years ago and we all love their music.  Here's Kiddo with the guys:


And here he is holding The High Kings guitar pick that the guys all signed for him. How cool is that?!  Of course Hubby and I couldn't find anyone handy to take our picture so we relied on his long arms to do the trick, hence the odd angle of the photo. :)


Oh, and I'm getting ready for BEA/BBC in New York in May and I'm still looking for a few more roommates so if you're planning to go and need a place to stay PLEASE GET IN TOUCH ASAP!!!


There are other things going on, and of course I have some book reviews, but this is what's on my mind right now. :)

So glad he is doing so great!

Wish I was going to BEA/BBC, but it's not in the finance cards again this year. I keep hoping someday! Have a great time. =O)

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that he'll be able to keep eating beef. I'm a little curous about hte bison thing though. I may have to check it out.

So glad to read that Kiddo's health continues to improve -- hoping that he can continue to introduce new foods into his diet.

Looking forward to seeing you in New York next month :)
