I am thrilled to report that Hayden's allergies are 100% gone and he spends most of his days (when not at hockey) riding his bike with friends to get pizza, ice cream or candy. He continually tells me, "Mom this is THE best summer of my life!" Our house has been filled with rowdy boys who are always hungry & I have never been so excited about feeding them all! The possibilities are endless.
Many a summer night we have sat poolside until dusk ordering food and not needing to rush home to cook. There have been just as many nights on my back deck with girlfriends, wine and takeout...a concept that was foreign in our house. The freedom I am experiencing in not having to cook every single meal from scratch is unreal.
I have had endless people e-mail me privately or call me to inquire about how Hayden is doing now that we are home, settled and not seeing Amy (our healer) twice a week. I can tell you he is the happiest, healthiest, sweetest boy I have ever known & I could not be more proud of how hard he worked while we were in Boston. The best gift now is seeing him live a life without constraints....no more fear when it comes to food. Hands down his favorite food is doughnuts...he practically tears up when he bites into them & says, "I cannot believe how good these taste." As his mama, that's all I need to hear & I too get misty.
My little family did an amazing thing if I say so myself...I have never been so proud...most definitely 'Worth Every Sacrifice.'
