500 mg!

500 mg is the equivalent to one whole peanut!!

We've been at this dose for a little over a week now and she's doing great. We got off our normal Friday increase schedule so she could attend Field Day (sometimes those things are more important). The 500 mg dose is still in the form of peanut flour. Our next increase will be an actual peanut!! I understand that some kids prefer to dose with peanut M&Ms (who wouldn't) so Calista is looking forward to that!

One small reaction (a few weeks ago) - she had a cut on her lip and got peanut flour on it. It caused her lip to swell. We ended up giving her Benadryl and everything was just fine.

Week 9

Week 9 and she is already at 250 mg of peanut flour. In 2 weeks, we are hoping to be at 1 whole peanut. Just saying that, thinking that....I'm amazed, thrilled, excited for the change in my girl's life!

My husband made the trip today, so I don't have many details BUT I know that Calista has increased to approx. 1/2 of a peanut!!

If all goes according to plan, she will be at 1 whole peanut on May 25th. Wow!
