    Finally! Some good news about my daughter.

    We have been giving her supplements for mineral and bacterial deficiencies for many months now. It takes a lot of time and some have to be given 15 minutes before she eats, some are once a day or twice a day. We got the results of a recent blood test and it looks like we are having an effect. Milk allergies was still over a hundred, anything over 30 means you react to it, 70 is a full allergic reaction. This seems bad but it might have been 2 or 3 hundred and now it may just be over 100. The grains were 70 and now they are 13. The same for most of the stuff that was in the 70's, it is all much lower. The leaky gut is going away. This means she is getting more vitamins out of the food she eats, and her digestive system is normalizing somewhat.
    She seems pretty happy and sharper, so we'll take it. It is nice to know the effort and hard work we are doing is paying off. Be happy.

    Everybody have a drink on me.

    This "leaky gut" is a term I had never heard. Imagine your stomach is a sieve, it only lets amino acids through. Hers is a net, and it is letting much larger things through like proteins. This is bad because, you need proteins to help your body, and, her immune system is making antibodies to fight off these proteins. Not only is she not getting the vitamins, her body's immune system is wasting energy fighting off something that is actually good for her. It's a double whammy. Hers is starting to contract back to sieve. I don't know if all the allergies will go away, but we may be able to start giving her more normal foods. She has also been doing really well in therapy, and we got a new seat for her wheelchair that she has to sit ion dynamically. It looks like she is wearing her brace, she is sitting so straight. It was well worth the money. You thought Corbin's were expensive?
    We are hoping this will help with the scoliosis. I would be exceedingly happy if she never needed to go under the knife for anything in her life, ever again.

    Thank you everyone. I can hardly wait until she is fully healed, and then I can complain about my health.

    As expensive as all these special foods are, they are still cheaper than going to China. If we do go back, I'll see if I can roll Charlie and Ewan into a motorcycle journey over there.

    There but for the grace of whatever deity you believe in goes any of us parents and our children.

    I applaud your strength, energy, dedication and compassion, and I wish you strength, energy, dedication and compassion as you continue to deal with this situation.

    Best wishes to the three of you - you have all of us fellow parents pulling for your daughter - and just as importantly - the parents who are helping her through this challenging situation!

    Good news for sure. I feel we're so lucky if we have just the typical health ailments as we go along and I'm not going to complain either. Wishing the best for your daughter Rachael's health.
