So, our trip to Anchorage wasn’t just about a safari to the zoo (Although, that part was totally great).
The purpose of the trip was to determine if Lucy is allergic to strawberries. The booming metropolis of Fairbanks isn’t home to many medical specialists, so if you have medical needs requiring a specialized doctor, the Army funds your trip to the big city.
We were allocated two nights down South for one morning spent visiting with an allergist.
The allergist did a skin test on little Lu and confirmed that she isn’t allergic to strawberries. Then, when we got home to Fairbanks, she ate a strawberry — and she is definitely allergic to strawberries!
So was that whole trip all for not?! NOT! Because she definitely isn’t allergic to…
So, who wants to go down to Anchorage to get tested to find out they don’t have an allergy to something they may actually be allergic to next?!
I think I’m allergic to interior Alaska, we better get back down to Anchorage to get that checked out!, stat!
“No” to strawberries; “Yes” to everything in and about Anchorage,
Meet me in Southern Alaska,*
