March 4th will be the one year anniversary of Luke's first anaphylactic reaction - but I just called in to get a refill for a new Epi-Pen as the ones we have expire in February. What a feeling to know that we made it this long without having to use our original set of Epi-Pens (although there was that one pesky time that we should have used it, that continues to weigh heavy on my mind). I'm looking forward to getting his new set, and practicing giving an Epi shot on an orange with the old one. Not that I hope to ever have to use the practice, but I've heard interesting things of what happens to an orange after it's been injected =)
This brings about a reminder though. Today we went to an open gym play area for kids, and the boys had a great time running loose with their friends. There's a no food policy there, but I still kept my eye on him, as he was working hard at stealing other kids' cups. As we were getting ready to leave, I looked up to see him with a cracker in each hand, happily munching on them. Crackers that I, nor anyone that I know, gave him. I'm assuming he stole them from someone's bag, but I don't know. I snatched them away from him as fast as I could, but he had taken several bites. They weren't anything I'd ever seen before, so I have no idea what the brand was. A bit of a panic moment there, but thankfully he didn't have any kind of reaction. Can't take my eyes off of that boy for a second!
