Allergist follow-up

Went for annual follow-up last week. He took the battery of skin tests like a pro. He confirmed the food allergies, and tested for distinct grasses (+ve for most/all). He gave us a referral for blood tests; hopefully some will be low enough we can proceed to the ultimate test, the oral challenge...
