After I started Megan on some supplements, she just seemed to take a turn for the better even though it seemed worse at first, but that was because there was an all out war going on under the skin! Her rash was almost gone by the next morning!!! The swelling in her face was almost completely gone as well. Those products actually work to kill and remove bacteria. It seemed to me that it was working. I was worried at first I was giving her too much of those products because I was giving larger doses, but I literally did not have any other options besides the Oregano oil capsules, the charcoal, or the vitamin C.
When she showed signs of improvement, I believe she relapsed simply due to the conditions she was made to suffer at the doctors office. Sitting there in a cold room on a hard chair just after she had been used to laying in bed sleeping for the previous 10 days with fevers, was not a good thing for her. Besides that, once I asked to leave to get her some nourishment, they not only told us we could not leave, but they handed her some potato chips and some Sprite! That sounds very healthy for a sick girl's immune system. Sometimes I just wonder...They are so smart. Doctors should know about nutrition!!! I know sugar is really hard on a person's immune system.
After we got in the car she began to cry, the rash had returned and she had a fever! I believe it was all due to those conditions. I usually never complain about things, but I was able to express my concern about the situation when they called to check on her. The infectious disease doctor said she didn't know my daughter was so cold and uncomfortable. I just told her in the future they should offer the sick children a blanket, something nourishing if over the lunch hour, and a pillow to rest their head. And she was so kind. She thought that was a good thing to make sure to do if that should happen again. And maybe even have healthier snacks as well. I love the staff at the hospital, they do try to take the best care of the kids they see. I am so thankful they are in the business of helping kids everyday and saving lives. I never want to seem ungrateful for what they tried to help my daughter with. And all is good!
The doctors did not know what it was, which was very frustrating to them and to us as well. They had a series of blood tests that only gave us a small picture of what it was not. Her liver counts were still a bit higher than normal, but improving overall. They were not too thrilled that I had been giving her other natural, non FDA regulated things, but they gave us nothing for her to take that would kill the bacteria that was making her so ill. I would have taken what ever they prescribed. As a mother, when you don't get answers and your child's life is in the balance, and you KNOW something that had worked well helping your family get well in other ways, you are like, I MAY AS WELL TRY THAT WITH THIS BIG FAT BUG what ever this strange thing is!!! Maybe it is a combination of the two, the Plexus and the Oregano, but she is cleansing and things were finally looking up for us. I still give all the credit to God because he created all the natural things we took as well as supplied the wisdom to take them.
What do we think it was?
We believe that our daughters illness was a complication from the brown recluse bite. I actually met several people in the area that had the same exact situation. They nearly died from the infection it caused as well. It is very scary, but we have a BIG GOD who understands and in Him we place our trust ultimately!
The past 2 days have been just a miracle to us. Megan's rash was nearly gone and we have had absolutely no fevers. I just keep on with my natural remedies that prove to be cleansing her body from all the impurities and illness. You would never guess that she was ever sick! In fact, yesterday she she helped can spaghetti sauce and make a big chicken dinner. She told me the day before that she really wanted to make chicken and mashed potatoes. A family from Alabama was on their way through with their camping RV and we invited them along with Owen and Evie to celebrate her life and wellness!
We called it a Thanksgiving Meal! We all have so much to be thankful for and I for one, was so thankful for my daughters healing!
God has been faithful to answer all your many prayers. Thank you all so much for your prayers, it has meant so much to our family during our crisis. May God continue to heal my daughter, I know His hand is upon her! All the Glory to God!
Megan is doing so well, she wanted to cook dinner and help us preserve the harvest!! Things are returning to normal. Praise the Lord! I just had tears in my eyes, from feeling like we nearly lost our daughter to having her back again, is just so overwhelming. I am overwhelmed with gratitude to all of you who labored with us in prayer, for God who supplied the grace and mercy! Thanks be to God from whom all blessing flow! And I just want to especially thank you all who have taken time and care to think of our daughter and remember her in your prayers. God bless each of you!
