One of our adopted children struggles with several different issues.
It’s been hard to nail down a solid, specific diagnosis.
(Please don’t write me a suggest an adoption issue. We have adoptions issues but this is not one!)
sifting through medication has been a nightmare.
try this, slowly increasing, try this, or this…
keeping it all straight is hard
It’s important to walk with God daily to know his will for the day.
our latest medication, that i was so excited about, had to be discontinued because of medical complications.
I had prayed that God would direct and He clearly closed that door, the doctor calling, “stop the medication immediately!”
What peace there is in knowing God loves our hurting children even more then we do. Peace, knowing He’s in control and will reveal his plan or heal in his time.
So, I’m reaching out to y’all today
wondering if any of you knows anything about a diet I keep running into: The Fiengold diet.
We feel God nudging us that way. We will try anything for some relief, for our child, and the way it affects our family, relief for ALL!
Once again I feel myself getting excited that maybe this is part the answer we have waited these years for.
I am not expecting perfection this side of heaven. But the thought of natural relief from horrible symptoms that interrupt life? Wonderful!
Even just to take the EDGE off. You know what I mean??
I would love to hear from you if you have thoughts about this feingold diet.
Interestingly, Gigi is having some allergy testing done too, and a celiac test, done last night and this morning.
her arms puffed up! we were so surprised.
I was 95 lbs when gigi was 12 months old, and diagnosed with celiac disease.
Anyways, all four girls were at the hospital this morning!
Gigi and Mimi had blood tests done and Lainee and Zinnia ended up needing to come in for a transfusion.
Mimi over-reacted so intensely that she ended up laughing at herself! No biggie! (silly sock day in middle school today)
gig’s turn. I hope she doesn’t have celiac, I think it would be hard as a child. but, we can do it! I think it’s good for kids to learn to say no to things… It was hard to get mimi to sit still next to her! she was freaking out again and wiggling like crazy! :)
I love you girls! done! breakfast in the cafeteria. Gigi said, “mom, everyone knows you in here! ” Yup! and I’m reminded of all the new acquaintances and friends I have gained at our hospital because of Lainee and Zinnia’s regular trips. Thank you God. Thank you!!
check out the lovely, annoyed look on my face! I think i am getting ready to say, “Time to get back to school, sweetie!!” (It’s. a. lot)
Elizabeth took lainee and zinnia, i’m so grateful.
Gigi had strep constantly nearly all winter last year so we are trying to get to the bottom of her ear-throat issues.
I didn’t think she was allergic to anything but she had a very strong reaction to several things!
We will do a milk-wheat-egg challenge, AFTER the holidays:)
So this week is PEACE for the advent season, friends.
PEACE. Meditate on that with me this week.
Last night Chris shared with me:
Finally brothers whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things…and the God of peace will be with you!
Our God of peace, be with YOU.
