    Blog Awards

    I have finally gotten around to being able to accept my blog awards that I received. Life has been so crazy lately that tonight is the first time in months I have been able to post about cute things like blog awards rather than life :) so I thought I would take the chance to do it :)

    The first award I received was this one

Love you!

    The second one I received is this one from a wonderful follower of my blog :) Trennia. Her beautiful story of her family is so full of love for her family and for God.

    Much love,


    Wow its been hectic around these parts the past few weeks, thanks to a land I will refer to as Yeast die off...Thankfully we are starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

    We have LOTS and LOTS of language going on :) and no more new breakouts of echzema :)normally by now he would have had many outbreaks, he is eating two new fruits grapes and blueberries, and has been staying on task at school all week and its only his first week back.

    Today, I went for Handsomes follow up appointment with his DAN doctor. It went very well as expected, she is wonderful and explains everything to me. So here are the results of some of what I found out..

    • has vitamin D deficiency(normal range between 80-100)his is 19

    • Deficient in Zinc, Glutathian,(spelled it wrong)sellinium these all aid in helping get rid of inflammation in our body naturally, and lots lots more

    • High levels of ammonia,cant remember normal levels but his is 39(previously was 48 so its come down some)

    • Severe inflammation of the gut

    • Has arsenic, lead and cadmium in his blood

    Doctor said that non of this is uncommon to see in our kiddos, and I find that so sad :( really.... my Handsome has just got to feel miserable.... I can't imagine what he has gone through in his short 5 years in life....it makes me sad to think about it.

    So here is the plan, she has put him on Vitamin D supplement, and Sellenium these obviously will aid in helping heal his several inflammed system. Unfortunatly my sons body does not produce naturally the things he needs to get rid of toxins, and to help heal what is going wrong in his body. I understand to some this may just sound like a bunch of nothing or confusing, but my doctor explains it much better than I do.

    All I know is, she is doing everything in her power to see the Handsome starts to feel better. Once you get them to start physically feeling better, they can start to focus on things around them. So today we have added three more supplements, which comes to a daily grand total of 14 supplements!!! Boy oh boy I"m glad two of them are liquid and the other is a lotion, I'm running out of ideas on how to give them to him. Pray we can get him to start swallowing pills :).

    Our next step in October is to start chelation............(GASP...chirp chirp chirp, do I hear crickets???)I know, what some of you may be thinking, but please trust me on this. I am a very informed mother, who has done her research way before I even decided to think about chelation. I chose the doctor we see, because she is knowledgable and knows what she is doing when it comes to chelation and HBOT. The kind of chelation he will receive is safe and I am completely comfortable with it. If you would see the levels of arsenic, lead and cadmium in him you would understand why I have chosen this route. I know this will help my son recover even further than he has :)

    Eventually I will also look into HBOT as he would greatly benefit from it, but its very costly so, continue to pray for us to be able to provide it for him.

    So thats the update :) I hope your all doing well and now that I have my laptop again you will be hearing from me more often.

    Much Love,
