I have several friends whose children have had MSPI, so I was already familiar with it. Plus I had been doing a ton of internet research since JD had started his first symptoms. But I never thought any of my kids would develop MSPI. After all, Libby had had no food reactions. But, surprise, JD had it!
From having observed my other friends whose kids have had MSPI, I was pretty bumbed out. The diet looked so hard! After having taken dairy out of my diet and having read a billion food labels in the past two weeks, I knew that just about EVERYTHING that is a prepared food has milk or soy in it. I had two options: 1) eating a restricted diet for the next year; 2) putting JD on incredibly expensive formula, but that's not in the budget!
