Hi John good to see you again. I have never heard of this before. Hopefully someone will reach out to you on this. Are you doing ok?

I am doing better than I deserve, a little older and such.

I had a couple of bouts with anaphylactic shock that point to alpha-gal allergy caused by a bite from a "lone star" tick. I just talked with my doctor at the VA and he has ordered bloodwork pronto. I happen to have a regular appointment in a couple of weeks anyway.
I know that some have had a different experience with the VA hospital system, but they have always treated me very well.
