Last week Mason and then Maiya came down with a nasty cold. Ok, I can deal with that. Then Maiya and then Mason came down with pink eye. I googled “natural remedies for eye infection” and came up with breast milk (all out), and urine. I considered my options and went with the prescription eye drops. I am all for weird natural treatments, but I draw the line at pee! The drops cleared up the infection almost immediately. This was Maiya’s first ever prescription and Mason’s second. Not bad for an almost 2-year-old and a 4-year-old. My point is that I am super lucky that we mostly deal with nasty colds here.
Which is why I am starting to panic slightly considering that Maiya has been puking since Sunday night. Oh shit. I am quite sure that poor baby has puked more times that I have ever seen or done so myself in my 28 years. Oh shit. And on that note, she has also had diarrhea and the nastiest smelling, raunchiest sounding farts in the history of farting.
Maiya has something of a stomach bug…or do you call it the flu…or maybe it is what I think it is. Allergies. Here we go again. Yes, I know I should just accept that she has “something” and let it run its course. Maybe I am being paranoid, but all signs are pointing to allergies from my perspective. Vomit, diarrhea(with what looks like some tiny specs of blood), mild eczema, horrible flatulence. This past week has been a vivid flashback from Maiya’s pre-NAET days. To top it all off I am experiencing a level of overwhelming stress that I have not felt since the allergies cleared up. Except I am dealing with it a lot better these days. Mostly because I have been there and am confident that there is something I can do to help.
The question is: Are her allergies resurfacing because her immune system is down or is she reacting to the eye drops we gave her last week?
I’m going to try to get her in to see Eve tomorrow. Hopefully we can do some muscle testing to see what is bothering my baby girl.
I would like to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude to the universe and all that is connected for the health of my family. Thank you, thank you, and thank you again. No seriously, THANK YOU!
Also, Mason has been a trooper being cooped up with his stressed out mom and sick sister all week. I don’t think he minds the movie marathons much, but every day when Maiya skips her nap out of pure misery he says “Maiya never takes a nap! I want her to take a nap!” He got his yellow belt this week, can count to 50 on his own, and at parent-teacher conferences his teachers raved. I am so proud of Mason! He has been so helpful this week despite getting so much less attention.
Check out what he made out of legos today!
