Better

We saw the doctor today and she said to give Nathan time to heal. She said that his body just went through a lot and needs more time to fully recover. His lymph nodes on his neck are very enlarged and she thinks that’s what’s causing him so much discomfort in his neck. But other than that, she asked me to give him time and she believes he will get back to normal soon.

He had a better day today – still much discomfort, but not constant. He had moments of happiness and even squealed and smiled a few times today. He is starting to make his little sounds again (not just the whining sound) so I believe he is on the mend.

What a frightening experience this has been. I have to be honest and say that I wondered if he would make it out of this illness. Those 2 days that he was catatonic, sleeping through the days, eyes empty, I wondered if his spirit was already on its way out of his body. It gave me the fright of my life. I believe he heard everyone’s prayers, and he heard my pleas to stay with us, as the next day it was almost like he came back, even though he was still very sick, there was life in his eyes again. I hope Nathan never ever goes through this again.

And I will sure do my darnest to prevent that from happening. Today I gave him his first MB12 shot, which is a superb immune booster. We also started applying glutathione cream every night, and soon I will have the rest of the new meds. I also think that adding acupuncture, reiki, and chiropractic to Nathan’s regular therapy mix will help him a lot. I won’t add these weekly, but maybe one of each per week so every week he is receiving something different.

We got some of the results back from some of the testing we did on his immune system and although his immunoglobulins are normal, we found that he does NOT have antibodies to some of the vaccines that were given to him early in life (before I knew better), which means his immune system is not working properly. Once we get the rest of the results, the doctor will decide the plan of action. She thinks he might need gamma globulin treatments to help boost his immune system. Between an immunologist, the DAN doctor, and the other new alternative healers, I think we will be able to keep him much healthier from now on.

I can’t thank everyone enough for all the the prayers and good wishes for our little piece of heaven. I think we are out of the woods now and just waiting to get back to normal, and I think it is because of all of the love and prayers that Nathan received. I know I have said this so many times but I can’t thank you guys enough!!!!!

  1. I am so sorry you both had to experience such suffering, but am glad to hear he is improving. He is so blessed to have a proactive mom who truly advocates for him. You inspire me! My prayers are still with you. xo

  2. I’m so happy to hear he is on the mend and is smiling that gorgeous smile of his! What a terrible experience you had to go through, and being pregnant on top of it! Alternative practice is amazing, this even makes me more of a believer! Take care of yourself too! I am still sending prayers…

  3. I’m so glad to read he is doing better, we have been praying for him. I’m curious about what you wrote about OT having antibodies for some vaccines he received, maybe you can send me an email to explain this? I’m curious because Sebastian recently got his chicken pox vaccine and he has been sick ever since. Maybe we can discuss? Will keep praying for Nathan and he continues to get his strength back. I imagine it was so scary for you.
