Time flies- it's been a whole year since the first Allergist Mommy blog post!
In that time, I've enjoyed sharing my perspective on the latest developments in pediatric allergy. It's nice to have an audience other than my husband for my musings. I haven't asked, but I think he also appreciates that I have redirected my educational efforts away from him. :)
In the past year, you've learned how (against the odds) Son #1 outgrew his peanut allergy. You've read about Son #2's eczema and developing asthma. You've seen how underneath the cool exterior, physicians are parents too. We worry about our kids the same way our patient's parents do. And we make the same mistakes that everyone does.
That said, I hope I've also shed some light on the fact that while we certainly don't have all the answers, physicians can help shed some light on the mystery that is modern medicine, and be valuable guides to help parents and children navigate the challenges of allergies and asthma.
Thanks for reading- here's to another great year ahead!
