Not much came of it...

Not much came of yesterdays appt., but he did see a new doctor along with the original one that we saw and the new doctor wants to baseline him. Basically test him for four hours on no drugs. So when school is out, we will be taking him off of everything (oh Lord be with me!) and then taking him in to test and start from scratch! I'm hoping that we can find out then what exactly is going on.

As far as my weight issue, I am embarking on a new adventure. I'm starting a program for 40 days called The Maker's Diet. It is really getting your diet back to the basics and back to organic instead of chemically injected foods! (Which is what a lot of foods are made up of in today's world!) Tomorrow I'm receiving a start up successful kit to get me going. It is a Bible based program and the author references the bible throughout his book supporting why we should eat what he suggests we should eat and avoid what we should avoid. I'm praying that I can stick to it and that eventually my whole family can be eating healthy, organic foods! I'm also involved in a weight loss blog called No More Junk. Where there are four teams and we weigh in each week, encourage each other and inspire. Anyone is welcome to join, see the site to sign up. I'm also on a quest to virtually walk to Milwaukee, Wisc. I'm only 20 some miles into my walk, but every day I try to chip away the 367 mile mark.

Thank you again to all who have emailed and commented with suggestions and ideas. I truly appreciate your kind words, concern and support.

Lori Sounds like your Dr is on the right track. We did the same thing with Rey although he went into a partial hospitalization program. That way when they put him on new meds they were able to moniter him really closely. I like when Dr.'s take that approach and don't start throwing drugs at you. I will be praying for you regarding your diet. I might look into something like that after the baby is born as long as it is breastfeeding friendly. If not I will wait until after.

Lori, I am praying for you sister! You, along with all the rest of us at No More Junk, can do this!

AND... I think it would be VERY beneficial if you got your son on the chemical free eating also! I REALLY can not express to you and everyone else how much better I feel when I am on the South Beach eating program... away from my food allergies and all the chemicals! Please pray about it and consider your son's eating, along with the new doctor.

Keep us posted when he goes meds free... we REALLY need to pray specifically for the family at that time!

Praying! I am praying for godly wisdom for the doctors and for great strength and peace for you as you walk this difficult road!

Sounds good, Lori. Testing him off drugs has to be a good idea and I really like what Jane-jane about getting him on chemical free eating as well.
I have heard much about The Maker's Diet and know people who swear by it. Some of those people aren't necessarily trying to lose weight, but to eat healthy. Hope you make out with it--like all diets, it's a matter of will power.
And nothing beats walking! Also, don't forget to drink plenty of water.

I am sorry that nothing much came out of Nico's appointment but I'm glad to hear that they are going to do more testing. I am praying for you guys.

If it's anything like the Daniel diet (fast) I will definetly be praying for you. I found that I got really frustrated with God, it's amazing when your body detoxes the true colors that come out. I will be praying for your new journey. I know my path as detrailed, but I plan to get back on.

The Makers Diet sounds interesting... I've been reading what Angel wrote about it and it definitely sounds worth looking into - keep us posted!
