back from teen summit

We laughed. We cried. We carried food packs and Epi-pens and saw our kids palling around with other kids who get it.
It was great--met some new people and learned some new stuff--like:
  • check out the health services when you go on a college tour (just you --no children necessary).
  • Or that many many school districts across US will not allow a kid to carry an Epi pen.
  • And that "surimi"* is actually fake crabmeat made with egg. of course--fake shellfish made with another really potent allergen-- everybody knew that.
Met some great folks from Anaphylaxsis Canada-- I respect that org. They get out there and tell the stories and get legislation passed and research accomplished: go AC.
So tonight I am making decent chocochip cookies--and having a riot becuase I get to eat the raw dough-- take that you non-egg allergic people. I can eat raw cookie dough because I make it without eggs! that's a plus if I ever heard one--yummy.

* I may be spelling/saying this wrong-- but it's fake crabmeat used in sushi found in delis and the like.
