Thought I would update a few of the posts I have previously made.
First of all: Our change in eating habits is going amazingly well! The kids are eager to try new foods and often like them! We are enjoying feeling better already!
Secondly: I went to my doctor today and he does not want to work with me on natural thyroid treatment (Armour or Westthroid). So, I am going to start looking for a new Dr. I still strongly believe that this is the course of action that I need to take! I need to at least try this alternative treatment! The more I research it, the more promising it becomes.
Thirdly: We had another chaotic worship service, this past Lord's Day. I had to leave the room, as my middle two children were totally out of line. I took them to a back room and I cried for the remainder of the service. And, I prayed begging God to make me patient. Begging God to change them into more obedient children. And, I cried some more. I didn't get to hear any of the sermon. On days like that, I remember why I used to like nursery facilities so much (before I saw the value of family-integration)! It's just frustrating, because I know they can do better! Some weeks they sit without making a peep - is it our breakfast? Is it Sunday School? What makes them so uncontrollable?!
Lastly: Recent blood tests show that my 2 year old, Lydia, most likely has some type of immune deficiency. (Her IGA and IGG were low) We do not know what this means yet. We will go to an immunologist at the very end of May. We will go to St.Louis and make a full day of it... the zoo and a picnic!
