That Gray was crazy allergic.
This picture was taken of him about 10 pm one night when he was about 6 months old.  He was screaming, and we went to check and this is how we found him. 
Like I said, I should have known.  I knew he was, but there’s no way to test them until they are a little older.  We really did not want to wait (or put him through another test) and since he has been getting no better and staying sick and running fevers, we got him tested naturally.  He just held onto this machine and it read his whole little body….and boy, did it find a mess.
All of this is not necessarily going to close up his lungs, but constantly ingesting it could keep his immune system low and keep him from staying well.
You’re not going to believe this.

You thought I was kidding, didn’t you?
So serious.  And the gluten is a big deal….no wheat, barley, or rye…..which pretty much eliminates all bread, crackers, processed foods, anything made with flour.
Don’t worry.  I’ve already been researching gf products and have a recipe to make our own bread (instead of buying a $6 loaf.)
Ok, so I’m open to any help you’ve got to give.  Anybody dealt with this before?
(Oh, did I mention I’m also gluten intolerant and allergic to dairy?)
fun times.
