Are there any walnuts, pecans or hazelnuts in that?

Earlier this week we had about a 6 hour stay at the allergist office.  Patrick was due to go from 100mg to 125mg so we go in and do the normal thing, they give him what I think is 125mg, we wait 2 hours and then we leave with the doses for the next two weeks.  While we are riding down the elevator I notice that the bag says 100mg....hmmm that isn't right.  We go back and after about 10 minutes figure out that they thought Patrick was supposed to be going from 75mg to 100mg instead of 100mg to 125mg.  We verify that he has indeed been on 100mg for the past 2 weeks so at that point we need to give him another 25mg and observe him for another hour.

At this point it was about 12:30 though and we were both hungry so we ran down the street to McDonalds before giving him the additional 25mg.  When we got back to the office Patrick pointed to his happy meal and asked me "Are there any walnuts, pecans or hazelnuts in that?".  I told him no and gave him a high-five, a big hug and told him it was awesome that he asked that question. He's asked this a couple of times now and we are excited that he is starting to think about it.
