Lizzy had a great night’s sleep and slept for twelve hours uninterrupted.
Thank God because baby Howard and Katie were up all night and I was dancing from one room to another to provide comfort. They both have colds but they were incredibly restless, did not want to be left alone, kicking their legs, wanting to sleep on their stomach even raising their bottoms in the air. Uh Oh. Maybe that Vermox clearing was not enough. Need to do another Cina clearing for them too. I need to investigate it further and make sure that we handle the dosing properly. Man I wish I was completely trained in homeopathy, but again patience. I need to learn from what is being presented to me at this moment. But again I want it all now. This time it is knowledge. Will I ever learn?
After the two of them became comfortable Todd and I crashed hard. He woke me at 530am with the worst headache. I always get a horrible headache when I am sleep deprived. It is as if my body is knocking on my forehead saying, “Think McWinter you need sleep”. So I listened and took a 2 hour nap. It helped some. But duty called and off I go.
When Lizzy woke up she was very quiet and content. She was playing and then asked to go my room and crawled in to our bed. She asked to watch the Simpsons and stayed there for about 30 minutes. She then came downstairs and wanted to eat. She was finally hungry. And boy was she hungry, she did not want to wait for her lunch as it was being prepared so a fit ensued. Yikes! They are definitely less in severity but man they still wear on a person. After I explained that it was cooking and showed her the hamburger patty in the skillet she was somewhat appeased. But she wanted her sweet potato fries NOW! She loves these things and I can’t blame her. They are good. After she was served, tranquility reigned once more.
This behavior is very typical of the full moon, parasites and Cina. She is just mad! And after all of that fuss about eating she did not eat very much. This too is typical of Lizzy when she is going through a homeopathic clearing. But less severity than before. In the past there was no consoling or reasoning with her. At least now we can get through to her.
As I mentioned yesterday Lizzy has been finger spelling more. She also is placing her hands in a different manner. As you can see in the picture they are not completely relaxed. Hmmmm? This has been going on for the past 10 days or so.
According to what I read it is probably an old sensory issue coming to the surface again. Lizzy also has been sitting in Howard’s baby swing for the first time ever. She is comforted by the motion. So I know for sure that this is the case. It amazes me every time. People who do not believe in homeopathy are missing out on a great healing modality. The Cina is definitely moving things about and bringing them to the surface again. Which is exactly what I like to see.
Amelia and I did an exercise with her today to help with her sensory issues. We placed her on a soft washable area rug with her head above the end of the rug and rolled her up tightly. I called it the sushi roll. “Hey Lizzy ready for another sushi roll? Okay here we go. We did it about 7 times in a row and she did not mind at all. She seemed to enjoy it very much. After we finished the frequency toward placing her hands together lessened tremendously. SUCCESS!!!
Thank you God! I have not taken Lizzy to a therapist for this because they are very expensive and our insurance takes forever to reimburse so we are on our own.
I can’t count how many times I became bummed out because we did not have the money for certain therapies. But now I am very confident that our inability to afford a therapy pushes me to do it myself. Along with the kids help we are doing everything we can for Lizzy and each other. I also need to keep in mind that all 11 of us are learning from Lizzy’s condition, not just me. My heart is not the only one being torn in half. Everyone who loves Lizzy feels the same way. Together we are helping this wonderful girl and learning about each other along the way.
Lizzy is also lining up her toys again. Old behavior coming to the surface. I left them alone so I could see what she did. But Ian came in and moved them so they were not in the way. (He is one cleaning man. His wife will love this!) Lizzy did not mind too much. Before she would go nuts, not today. More of the same. Old behavior less severity.
I hope we have a calm night because Todd and I need it badly. May God shine His light upon us tonight and tomorrow and provide us all that we need for another day of recovery.
