Cold Urticaria resolved!

Great news at the allergist today! Nick had another "ice cube" test (they hold an ice cube to his forearm for 5 minutes) and it was negative!! He got one tiny hive but it was gone in a couple minutes! The Dr. said we are very fortunate that it resolved so quickly as it usually lasts 6 -12 months. She said we still need to watch him when he's outdoors and keep him bundled and warm but that things look really good. It's so refreshing to leave an allergists office with a smile on my face! I hope that things continue this way and that Nick can now play outdoors on warmer days-either way I'll sleep easier tonight!!! Thank you God, the universe or whatever powers that be and are watching out for us!!
