Amanda's grade for anaphylaxis to peanuts is a 5

Amanda had a blood test a couple of weeks ago for an issue involving her enlarged lymph node. I asked at that time if she could also be test for tree nuts because although we've known since she was 2 years old that she is allergic to peanuts, we have not known if she is allergic to tree nuts because we were told to stay away from those also.

The blood test revealed that she is, on a scale from 1 to 5, 5 being the most severe, that she rates a 5. Of course I already knew that in my heart because of how she has reacted with even a trace of peanuts. Full anaphylaxis.
