An Appointment with the Allergist

A goes to see the allergist tomorrow. I'm glad we're hopefully going to find out what might be causing his asthma problems. Until now, it's just been as he's gotten a virus that the asthma has come on, but they say that if there's another trigger--an allergic reaction--it can lower the immune system thus making the virus seem like the problem. Our bishop was telling me about his daughter who also had some bad asthma problems. They found out it was a wheat allergy; once they discovered that and took care of it, her problems were resolved. I'm hoping for an answer. We'll see what they say. Just nice to finally be able to take a more proactive stance on things.

I hope they find something. It would be easier to eliminate the cause than not to know what it is! At least, it was in our experience. I'd much rather cut out all meat and dairy and have a healthy, functional husband than eat meat and dairy and never know when he'd be well and when he'd be sick.
