After nearly six months of dairy-free torture, Robin has begun eating small amounts of cheese and butter again. He started with a spaghetti carbonara with parmesan and pecorino about a week ago, with fresh home-made spaghetti rolled out on the pasta mangle which hasn’t been touched in all this time. We were feeding his sister Heather who apparently had never had real fresh pasta and swore she wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. She had seconds, which for Heather is unprecedented.
So after his digestion appeared to be able to cope with that, he’s been eating small amounts of cheese and butter most days, with apparently no ill effects. He’ll probably never be able to go back to lashings and lashings of cream and cheese daily like he used to, but he is very relieved not to have to avoid it so religiously in the future. In fact, he’s really much happier.
