When Brian called me and gave me the news, I was so sad. I had been so hopeful and felt that there was no way she could still be allergic, but I was wrong. Apparently this had been the second time in a week that there had been a negative scratch test result and then a positive result from the oral challenge. The doctors are looking into the possibility of a bad batch of peanut scratch testers. I just want for Kiersta to be "normal." I don't want her to start elementary school next year where food is unrestricted and kids share. She may just have to go to my school so that I can be there to keep an eye on things. Kiersta is disappointed too.
