Whew we have had a rough few weeks! I started babysitting another little boy and I am constantly on the go. The second he leaves I have to get caught up on cleaning, cooking, and of course trolling my tooth decay groups for more information. It's been a slow month for the tattoo industry and I've had to cut out a few supplements. My husband's truck also broke down so we are in a bind, to say the least. This is where FAITH comes in. I did not know what we were going to do. We ran out of our Living Streams products and it was very obvious in Coraline's attitude and teeth. Her only tooth left intact had become wiggly and cracked, and I was FREAKING OUT. I haven't had a tooth breakdown in awhile because my amazing friends from my groups inspire me and help me so much. But this week, I broke down. I broke down hard.

I didn't understand. This week I gave generously in tithes. More than we could afford. I took two kids off the angel tree. Not because I expected anything, but because I felt empowered to. Then BOOM! all these obstacles fell on us. I don't blame God. I know obstacles happen for a reason. Maybe I'm being tested? Maybe Satan wants to deter me from doing good? Who knows. This is where the amazing people in my life come into play. Without saying too much, I now have a plethora of supplements for Coraline! I have kefir grains and bottled kefir to help heal her gut! I have a scoby due to arrive anyday. I have alfalfa, bifido, mineral spray, moringa AND derma! I have Lugols iodine, Hylands vitamin C and Houstons digestive enzymes. I have BestMade cell salts and plantago coming next week.

I have amazing friends. I have amazing faith. I have a child who's healing. I have a dry pillow tonight. 🙏

We also found the PERFECT chiropractor and naturopath. He uses muscle testing to determine what is good for her body or bad. This way we can figure out her food allergies and what medications we can avoid. It's $150 for the first visit so hopefully after the holidays we can go. I'm very optimistic. His last name is Sunshine so really, he must be great! Although I'm not updating as much, I'm still not giving up! I am working harder than ever to heal her gut & her teeth. We can tell a huge difference in her speech and smile since the frenectomy. I'm so glad we did it!

Another Obstacle Crossed.

Frenectomy = done. Do you have any idea how long I have been waiting to say that?! Almost a year! I am so glad we got it done. Dr. McMurtry was wonderful. I can't say enough how glad I am we made the drive to Charlotte. It was so quick, maybe 4 minutes tops. I'm not going to lie, those four minutes sucked, but we read a Mickey Mouse book after and she was laughing and waving at everyone. When I brush her teeth and do the stretches I can definitely tell how much more tooth is visible and able to be cleaned by her saliva and tongue. (We got her tongue tie done too.) Dr. McMurtry also poked around in her mouth and of course said she had severe decay (duh) but also assured me that some of the teeth were hardened and would be able to stay! As long as I continue with our diet and supplements I have no doubt we will continue to see improvements. He was very supportive of our holistic lifestyle and did not pressure me into anything at all. Thanks Brian!

The stretches were hard the first day or two but now she doesn't mind at all and likes to practice on her babies and me. I can't wait to see how healing will progress! I was very worried about pain but we haven't needed ANYTHING. I have her a few arnica tablets before the stretches the first two days but honestly I don't think it changed anything. 

The first picture was taken around 13 months. Oh how I wish we would have gotten it revised then!

Two days until we are going to Charlotte for the laser frenectomy. Anxious is an understatement. I am very excited. I really think this is the last obstacle keeping the healing from occurring. Or at least the decay from halting. We don't have the funds for this at all. But like the holistic dentist said, this is so important, you FIND the money. He had no correlation with the laser dentist either, he was sincerely there to help us. So I feel this is what is right. This dentist uses a swaddle blanket. Coraline LOVES to practice swaddling. We do it everyday on her babies. So this past week we have been practicing swaddling her and zzzzzzzz her teeth. She loves it. I think it will go well.

If you are reading this and you are one of the people that owe us a portion of the $5,300 we desperately need for my daughters medical care...don't be an asshole. My husband won't say it, but I will. It's slow season, my child care income is minimal and my daughter has needs that we can't ignore. 

That being said, she is doing great. Her teeth seem to look the same, but harder and stronger. Most importantly, she's happy. She's eating so much. Talking to much. Sleeping so soundly. She is so perfect. I am so thankful. 

I can't wait to update you with the aftermath of the frenectomy. I have arnica and acontinim for aftercare. I am hoping to get rescue remedy on Monday. 

PS: my tooth no longer hurts at all. Dentist said root canal or infection will take over. I chewed up and swallowed a shitload of garlic and took oil of oregano for two days. No more pain at all! YES! 

I am currently awaiting vitamin d3, zinc and silica from Amazon. I think these are also very important. I think I'm going to stop with the bifido and alfalfa for awhile.
