No Pistachios!

We found out last weekend that Josiah is allergic to pistachios. He ate 6 pistachios and then his face started to swell up. Thankfully his throat didn't close up and he quickly got better with Benadryl. The doctor is having us carry around an epi-pen wherever we go, especially while we wait on Josiah's allergy test. They took some blood today and will test for all nuts. I'm praying pistachios will be the only reaction.
It was scary to see his face all swollen and I never want that to happen again. I am hoping he'll grow out of this quickly.
