Consultation with the Doc

Good new and bad news...After reviewing Hannah's case more, BB has decided that it would be a waste of our money to have Hannah come now. The good news is that they have given us detailed primitive reflex exercises to do 3-5 times a day. These exercises are simple but very powerful. Unfortunately, even as simple as they are, we will have to work very hard to get Hannah to do them. We are also going to start working on sensory-motor exercises that target the right brain as well as listening to specific music that has been arranged just for right-brain input. Furthermore, we have to get a blood test....a daunting task. The last and only time we had blood drawn from Hannah was when she was 3. It took six people to draw the blood because they had to hold both legs and arms and head still. I was horrified and it brings tears to my eyes and sickness to my stomach thinking about it. The blood test will tell us what if any food sensitivities she has. When we know that, we can begin to change her diet per the nutritionist guidance.

All in all, I left the appointment optimistic, but overwhelmed. We have alot of work ahead of us, but we already knew that. I'm trying to live day by day but I have to admit, I feel like I need some "fresh air" all the time. My reading of Morning and Evening today comes to mind: "Come unto me all you that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest." This is a promise that I must cling to in the next few weeks.

  1. I am praying for Hannah and your family. I am so glad BB was able to provide some exercises to work on at home. I'm just sorry I can't be there to help out. Sending my love!
