There were unexpected social, emotional, and behavioral challenges that arose.

  1. we have food intollerances, nothing this severe, but it makes life hard enough. My heart goes out to these people. My nephew is allergic and I still remember talking to my sister after he was rushed to hospital on Christmas day because his grandparnets gave him marshmellows without thinking. I’ll never forget her fear or feelings of guilt at not watching him like a hawk at their house (he made it through by the way)
