More Testing

Well, they have removed even more foods from JJ's diet. :(

I am a bit torn about this. On the one hand, it is more meat. Meat is acidic, and makes the body acidic which the esosinophils thrive on.

BUT I also know that JJ needs PROTEIN! He can't do beans or nuts or any legumes. And he cannot do dairy. Even raw goat milk/cheese. I know that he gets some from greens and such. But normally a vegetarian diet you can eat nuts, beans, legumes, etc. I am just not sure what to do.

And he has started waking up in the middle of the night and I am sure it is because he is hungry. I feed him a LOT of food, but most of it is fluff, so it goes through the body quickly rather than staying in the stomach digesting. :(

I am going to try quinoa and see how he likes it. I have done the flakes and they are nasty. LOL!! So I am going to try the grain and see how he does.

I will say though that things are still going WONDERFULLY well. Josiah has not thrown up in so long I cannot even remember!! And he has gotten into foods that he should not have (like chicken and watermellon and garlic) and has not thrown up! It has been so wonderful!!

Thanks to EVERYONE for their prayers for JJ.
