Wheat is a food again!

Today we went to the allergist's office to have a food challenge for wheat. Based on last week's (or was it the week before last?) skin tests, our allergist felt really confident that Sophie would be able to eat it with no problems. We arrived a little before 1:00. At 2:30, Sophie had eaten an entire bowl of Cream of Wheat, and was still feeling great. At 3:00, we said goodbye to our doctor and the RN who administered the challenge, and drove home knowing that Sophie can now eat wheat. And, in the space of 2 hours, wheat became a food again.

Yay! That is so amazing. That is the news that we all want to hear. So what wheat item will Sophie choose to eat first?

So far Sophie has tried Apple Jacks, a few candies--like Red Vines and Whoppers--and homemade donuts courtesy of my brother. She sometimes says that her tongue itches when she eats wheat. I remember this happening when she first started eating cow's milk too, and eventually her body got used to it and she doesn't say that anymore about milk.
