Entry: Where's the BEEF? Thursday, July 24, 2008

Marshall just completed a day-long food challenge and he's passed the beef test.  They're not even going to attempt to give him any milk products based on his test results but beef is all good.

Trace & I have run through what that means to this family:

-  The boys will get a McDonald's Happy Meal for the first time ever!!!

-  Beef Jerky

-  Steak!

-  Beef Fajitas

-  Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

-  Briskett

-  The other side of the menu at Taste of Asia... and Bill Miller

-  Sausage

-  Arbys

-  Subway Meatball sandwich.... and the Spicy Italian!

- the ability to eat off of other people's grills

We're going to celebrate with Happy Meals!  Unfortunately we also have confirmation of his asthma which had always been a clinical diagnoses.  They think the asthma is triggered by his reflux. 

So, we've accomplished what we've come here for.  The psychologist has blessed me as a mother and cancelled our next 3 appointments.  I told her that if she wanted to talk about Braden then I could use a few more weeks but she didn't oblige.  Good thing she didn't hear me chew out the 12 yr old nutritionist who doesn't have a clue.

I do have to say, feeding your child antibiotic packed beef patties from McDonald's being better than organic dairy doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Maybe you should get a better education on these sorts of things before scolding someone else on their own website. Next time, keep your comment to yourself, nutjob.

Congratulations to Marshall and your family. You have given hope to me that my dairy/beef allergic daughter might someday be able to eat beef. Right now all she can eat at McDonalds is the apple pie and the apple slices. Happy eating!!!

Psycho. I just read your comment on The Pioneer Woman and I am amazed by your ignorance. You are celebrating the fact that you can feed your child McDonald's, but you feel there is no nutritional content to dairy?! Get a life and an education.

Nut, this is so exciting now I don't have to fight with the managers to give you a 5 cent toy, with our chicken select. This is life changing for you it will mean you can go to more birthday parties and like Dad says eat "anything" off the menu at Taste of Asia. Can't wait for you and the B Man to come home and we will go to Mickey Dees!!!!!!! Love you all and you are all doing GREAT
