Praise God!!!

Can I just say... THANK YOU GOD!!!!!! I am so happy I could almost cry! I have been praying and praying that Jackson would get well. He has been fighting something for MOST of his life from yeast infection on his butt, ear infections, runny nose, eczema, croup, congestion, fevers, and a cough that seemed like it would never go away! It has been really stressful on me trying to do everything I know to do to get my baby boy well. About a month ago I started going to a Naturopathic Doctor here in Oklahoma City (Dr.Terry Reed) since the conventional medical community was not offering any solutions (just treating symptoms). Since then his eczema has cleared up, his congestion and runny nose is gone, he has not had an ear infection, his fever is gone, and last but not least.....HIS COUGH IS GONE!!! I am totally pumped about all this! We still have months of treatment to go, but I'd say we are off to a GREAT start!!! And as for me... I have more energy, I don't have a cold or cold-like symptoms anymore, I am producing more breastmilk, and other things I won't mention on here.
And might I say again...PRAISE GOD and thank you Dr.Reed!!!!!

Wow! No idea you had all of that going on! It is so miserable when your baby isn't well, I cannot imagine him not being well ALL the time! Jackson looks so healthy, too, it's crazy! Well, you are in our prayers and Scott and Jackson, too, that he will heal and you can all move on healthy! He's so beautiful!

Rachael,

I remembered him being sick, but I didn't realize so much had been going on. I am so sorry to hear how stressful it has been, but I am so thankful that all is getting better. We will keep you all in our prayers!
