J was admitted to the hospital yesterday for 3 days of testing! FINALLY! he got to see the best Neurologist in BC! this after our family doctor majorly let us down. I am beginning to think it is who you know when you need to get results quickly in the medical world.
We feel so relieved that he is finally getting all the tests done. The Doctor is still pretty sure that J had the correct diagnosis of CIDP. This time though they will do the right treatments! So thanks for all the prayers we are so glad for things to finally be moving!
Yesterday I took Hailey to the naturalpath and they did her food intolerance test, apparently the testing they use is the best out there. It is all done by computers which blows my mind! Turns out she is allergic to dairy ( all dairy including butter and yogurt sour cream cottage cheese.....everything from a cow.....but she can have goat/sheep or soy milk products) , msg, red dye, cornstarch, caffeine, chocolate, Pepsi, coke, coffee, corn, popcorn, anise seed, saffron, butterscotch and corn syrup. So not too bad but apparently I really have to start reading labels as corn syrup and red dye are in many many things! He gave us some cod liver oil and natural antibiotics to put her on and the oil for all the kids to take. He said her lymph nodes are really large and over stressed. I am so glad that I took her in. It is good to get answers and start walking in the right direction. He is pretty sure that getting her off these things will start to improve her behaviour too!
