Project 365-088: Protecting my baby


Violet is allergic to nuts, all nuts. We were pretty sure about peanuts yesterday; but today she had a visit to an allergists and we got confirmation. It seems so unfair. She’s such a little girl and to think she will never peanut butter or chocolate covered almonds. It’s also scary, the doctor gave us a prescription for 4 EpiPen so we can have one everywhere Violet goes regularly.

When I slipped into her room to check on her I could help but wonder how do I protect her from nuts. The doctor said that most of the rashes we’ve observed were probably caused by someone who’d been in contact with a nut that day. How do you protect against that?
