Lizzy woke up last night at 2am screaming. Todd went to her and rubbed her head until she fell back to sleep. Very typical of her when she is ready to get on a remedy. Slowly old behaviors surface with less severity. She is definitely ready. Her appointment with Dori Vallis ND is this Thursday the 18th. The third round of CEASE therapy will commence soon. We are very anxious to see where Lizzy is leading us now that we have hit another fork in the road.
Decided to continue to follow-up with the osteopath in addition to the CEASE therapy. Her response is close to miraculous. Osteopathy and homeopathy dove tail each other perfectly. These two therapies do wonders for her and myself. Now that I am comfortable with the CEASE therapy I can get a clear reading as to what is going on and what she needs.
I feel sooooo much better after seeing him. He is an absolute healer. I feel that Lizzy knows that Dr. Goldman D.O. helps her. She is very anxious to go see him and very communicative with him and his staff. The receptionist Diane is very indulgent with Lizzy. She always allows Lizzy access to their telephone. On her last visit, she was pretending to talk on the phone. Her ability to engage in imaginative play is wonderful to see. We are so blessed that God has brought us to these wonderful people who are helping us on this journey. Miracles abound us. One just needs to keep their eyes open and faithful to His plan.
Lizzy has been using her fork to eat again. YEAH! Her response to her surroundings has been wonderful. She is engaging and willing to be more of a participant and not a spectator. Her maturity is amazing and wonderful. We are all so pleased.
Todd sent Lizzy a birthday card from Jib Jab and she loved it. Jib Jab provides e cards with great animation. She wanted to watch it over and over again.
We have been using Todd’s MacBook and she was very interested in using the mouse. I think Macs are so much better than a PC. Her tactile learning style is perfect for this computer. We need to purchase one for her ASAP. Before we could not get her to place her hand on the traditional mouse. The Mac is her style. What is not to like? Mac’s are great! We would have one for each of our kids if the money was there. Again, patience. God’s timetable not ours.
All is quiet tonight and all of the “Littles” are fast asleep. The three of them (Lizzy, Mattie and Katie) have been bouncing off of each other. Literally, they are “bonking” one another and playfully pulling or chasing each other. It is very cool to see to them playing together. I just wish they had not chosen to impersonate the Three Stooges. Especially Katie, she is so little but as tough as nails. She holds her own and then some. Where did it come from? I guess watching their older brothers. There is always some battle ensuing or creature to run from in our back yard.
Another challenge is Katie and Mattie have adopted Lizzy’s habit of screaming. Lizzy has not been screaming lately, but she did earlier. These little one’s look up to their big sisters and brothers. Their influence is very pwerful. We have been trying to undo these habits but it takes time. I pray that it happens soon. I find myself exhaling out of sheer exasperation. I am turning in to quite the whale impersonator. With all of my postpartum pounds in place I thank God whaling was outlawed or I would be in real trouble.
Well tomorrow is another day and a fresh start. Thank God for that! May we all rest well.
