So, I was (hopefully) at the bottom of the barrel when I wrote my last post. I was exhausted, frustrated, angry, and not feeling very loving or optimistic. But, we seemed to have turned a corner. Sam had a great 2 treatments at the end of the week, and he's been so much happier and not in pain. Praise the Lord!!
It's like we have a brand new baby in the house - one who doesn't cry constantly, isn't in pain, and smiles at us! Woo hoo! (Now, let's hope this keeps up!)
The doctor had told me that there would be ups and downs, but I never expected the "downs" to be so terrible. I'm praying that there will only be "ups" from now on - and thankfully the chiro thinks that is the case.
I went back to eating dairy, but I'm skipping the straight milk. We'll see if I can tell a difference. Sam has done so great the last 3 days that I'm not sure if it's the doctor, the milk, or both. But, I'm hoping that this is our last week of treaments. I'm SO ready to get our days back. This week we have doctor's appointments every.single.day. Four for Sam and one for me. Not fun!
It doesn't even feel like Christmas is coming b/c we've been so wrapped up in our craziness...but I'm ready to get into the spirit. Mom and I are going to try to get some baking done tomorrow.
