I'm Okay


"Not to worry, guys, my body is back to a normal color and my chubby cheeks are due to genetics, not peanuts."

So almost 48 hours since we learned about Owen's not-so-fun fact and all is coming back to normal... or our newest version of normal. Yesterday, just one day after his reaction to peanut butter, he woke up looking like a marshmallow man. His face was completely swollen, which prompted a pediatrician call and a prescription antihistamine. As shown in the photo above, that is no longer the case today. My baby is feeling much better.

Thanks for all the prayers and calls/texts to check up on him. We are slowly becoming educated on what this means for us and we will likely know a lot more after his 12-month visit next week. In the meantime, if you'd like an EpiPen lesson or a run-down on which restaurants use peanut oil (RIP, Chik-fil-a), I'd be happy to oblige. Have a great Friday, y'all!
