I was reading on MSNBC a couple days ago about a 12 year old boy who is allergic to almost everything. By almost everything I mean that they have only found 6 (wow that's a small number) foods that he is NOT allergic to. That poor boy can only eat chicken, tuna, carrots, potatoes, grapes and apples. Even still he has to receive additional nutrients through a tube. He now gets this through a port in his stomach since these daily feedings were rubbing his nose raw.
Its stories like these that make remember that I really should be thankful for my many, many blessings.
