What would happen if you couldn’t eat? If everything you touch or come in contact with could put you into anaphylaxis? Stop breathing? More so, what if you couldn’t express this concern because you were merely a baby. You come to rely on your only advocate, mom. This is a story of a family who took their daughter’s fight with food allergies from desperation to determination. An emotional rollercoaster story, fighting to get anyone to listen. Now still living with food allergies, this family has made it through and hopes to shine a light to all those dealing with the same issues. As an added bonus, there are recipes that have been a staple for this family to keep them going. Enjoy!
An amazing story of a mom who doesn’t give up or give in….knowing her (third) child better than anyone. The emotional struggles of knowing something isn’t right with your baby, trying to find answers, and battling against medical doctors who just want to prescribe medications as the cure all. Lexi’s inner battles were heartbreaking, but her perseverance is almost heroic. This book should be mandatory reading for any family with special needs of any kind. Be true to yourself. Listen to that mom voice. Thank you, Lexi Henegar for sharing your story. Maybe, just maybe, your story will be heard and will be just what “the doctor ordered” to help someone struggling with similar circumstances. Bonus! Recipes in the back of the book! PS…I would love a follow up story on how Bee is doing now.
How interesting to read a very personal account about multiple and severe food allergies, and how parents of children have to be advocates among the doubters in the medical community. Worth reading for insight into the world of living with deadly food reactions- a world unknown to most people. Learning more about any condition in order to understand others is always worthwhile. Hives in the Kitchen is the perfect book for doing just that!
Lexi shares her story of a mother’s perseverance for her child’s health and safety. She writes beautifully about the struggles and victory of food allergies and includes the personal doubts and depression that only a strong and faithful mother could overcome. Well done.
