For those of you have been praying for our little sweetheart, Madeline, I am glad to report that she is doing some better. Her daytime itching has been minimal, and her nighttime itching decreases as time goes on. Her skin still has a long way to go in the healing process, but there has been progress.
Madeline’s doctor recently suggested taking Madeline off gluten since reactions to gluten can be a common cause of eczema. That means her diet is currently gluten-free, casein-free, soy-free and egg-free. The challenge for me is to provide fruits, vegetables, protein and gluten-free grains that Madeline will enjoy. It has required some significant changes, but surprisingly, I’m already getting used to it.
Saturday Madeline and I went to the health food store to stock our pantry.
And Sunday morning I made gluten-free pumpkin pancakes, recipe compliments of glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com.
