Lizzy slept well last night and woke up in good mood. Thank God she loves the pumpkin seeds we gave her. They are organic and quite delicious. The entire family is eating them. If you do not recall pumpkin seeds help get rid of worms. Apparently the worms gorge themselves on them become relaxed and are easily passed. Sounds good to me. Worse case she has been eating a nutritious snack.
Received confirmation from Dori Vallis ND that the picture we sent her of Lizzy’s worms is actually pinworms. I am going to follow-up with lab work to confirm. Shared with Lizzy’s osteopath what she is experiencing and he advised the testing. After thinking about it I agree. It can’t hurt to be sure.
Lizzy did something that was out of the ordinary today. She suddenly became very spacey. I asked her what was wrong and reached for her. She put up her right hand as if saying not now. It was so strange. The look in her eye was so different.
She ate lunch and we then we gave her a bath. She was doing the same thing as last night in the tub. Going boneless and not cooperating.
After she got out of the tub I gave her a rub down with lotion and she was more like herself again. Those big beautiful eyes of hers were back. She came downstairs later and said “Hello”, with a happy smirk. Very interesting.
This same behavior was exhibited a while ago when we started on classical homeopathy. After a bath she is a new woman but within 3 hours or so all of the screaming and junk starts again. I always thought the water was therapeutic for her. In the early days we would give her a bath 2 to 3 times a day just to calm her down. Here we go again. I guess these parasites must have been there from the beginning.
Her afternoon was very pleasant and she was very engaging. After dinner we got ready for bed and while changing her I found some golden-colored clusters in her diaper and on her groin and anus. Put on some latex gloves and placed them in a small glass bottle to take to the lab. What the @#$%! Part of the diaper? Will find out soon enough.
Lizzy was still very pleasant and no problems. Put her to bed and she smiled at me as I kissed her good night. I decided to go outside to call my sister without being interrupted and she went nuts. From her bedroom window she saw me out there and screamed her head off. Ian went to her but no go. She wanted me. When kids don’t feel well they always want their mom. I know I did.
Well her mood snowballed into a screaming fit for two hours. She was only content if I was with her. Katie wanted some loving too so I was being pulled in two directions. Poor little chicks needed some comforting and that is what they got.
Lizzy and Katie finally gave up 30 minutes before Todd got home. All was well, and off to sleep I went. Hoping for a better day tomorrow.
