Mothers Intuition

Have you ever had an instinct? An instinct that begins as a gnawing...Then grows into a raging burn; a burning instinct that something is wrong...

Your baby continues to get sick from the very foods he is supposed to thrive on. I did. I am a mom of a little boy just diagnosed with FPIES.

And that burning feeling now? Extinguished. My instincts? Stronger than ever. Guiding me, with my faith, as we navigate through the murky waters of our new world created by something called FPIES.

"Faith is not about everything turning out OK; Faith is about being OK no matter how things turn out."

My little peach.

Thank goodness for safe foods!!!  Peaches are safe.  I hope to get through the rest of the peach "food family" soon (nectarines, apricots, plums...) but for now- we are enjoying the peaches.   Little Man even asks for them by name!   We couldn't resist letting him have it the way he asked for it- whole!  No skin, but eating it whole!

Of course, I have a few dozen pictures just like these!   I am so happy to see him eat.    We are also readdressing millet.  My concern is that it was too much "grain" for him following the vitamin (corn derived ingredients) fail.   That with his acute inflammation - his gut needed a "bland" diet.  We have reintroduced it (again!) and are not seeing any signs of symptoms we were prior.   So, maybe that mystery is solved.   Why this happens is another mystery.
