    What an Amazing Day!

    I have to say I am the most excited Momma around tonight :)...

    First let me start by saying our DAN doctor appointment was absolutely fabulous!

    Dr.Schneider is amazing! She sat with me and explained how everything he is taking work for him, and how the new supplements she is putting him on should work. She explained what all his previous lab work meant and how we can help him. Now don't get me wrong, I also liked Dr.Bradstreet, but my experience with him was basically, heres what you need to do gave me a list and scheduled our next appointment. Our new DAN is very one on one, and likes to get all the history from you in addition to what you have already given her in writing. She was so thorough and very caring, I liked the fact that she talked with Handsome and told him, We are gonna get you feeling alot better young man.

    I felt like she cares for her patients as they are her own, hmmm maybe it has something to do with the fact that she herself has children with autism :).. Probably! We meet for a little over 2 hours and she went over so much with me. I am so excited to start his new regimine of supplements. Here's what the plan is so far :

    Starting this week:

    • Diflucan (to get ride of the yeast overgrowth)

    • Big doses of Vitamin C to help keep him regular

    • Magnesium to also keep him regular

    • Ther biotic (probiotic) to help with the Diflucan

    After next week, we add the

    • digestive enzymes AFP

    • Methyl Folate (have to double check on the name)

    She told us that after the next two weeks we should start to see big improvements with his stools. That would be a HUGE blessing for him, as he has been struggling with this his whole life, and we may also see improvements with attention span too. Either way, I am looking forward to getting everything started so that we can see what works for my son.

    Now on to even BIGGER NEWS...........................

    OUR LOAN ON LEND4HEALTH HAS BEEN FUNDED!!!!! YAY FOR MATTHIAS!!!!! We don't have to wait anymore! We get to start all his lab work right away! I am so excited and can't wait to start the process!!!

    Yea!!! There is nothing better than finding the perfect doctor. So glad you are looking forward to the future.

    Diflucan and the probiotic. If you've never been on these or know someone who has. Just a little word of warning. As the yeast is leaving his body he will stink- and stink bad. Also his poops will be very stinky. This isn't a huge problem, just something to be aware of.

    It is wonderful that this doctor even knows about yeast overgrowth. What exactly is a DAN doctor? Once that yeast starts dying off he is going to feel so much better. Did she give you a diet plan along w/the supplements? If not, he needs to cut almost every single bit of yeast out of his body. Basically he needs to be on the Atkins diet. If not, you are fighting the effects of the Diflucan.

    Good luck, it sounds like you are on the right track!
