Planting Hope

Yesterday I had several new trees planted around our house.  They are colorful Forest Pansy Redbuds, Seven Son Flower Trees, and White Fringe Trees, among others.  They are small but very ambitious.  I hope they will provide many years of beauty, interest, and shade.  Right now they represent for me the new hope we are feeling for Dante.

Before going further, I would like to thank each and every one who, regardless of whether I post, keeps Dante in your thoughts and prayers.  Thank you for being a source of love and healing for my son.  I wish that faith and hope-filled connection for every single child.  I call it my “life line” and it is a blessing.  And now to the news…

We just finished week 16 of the Modified Atkins Diet for seizures and this past week things were significantly different.  Going back a couple of weeks ago, Dante was again super weak, as he has been on and off with this diet.  I decided that I wanted to try a new homeopath who would work with Dante’s remedy more aggressively than our current one.  I felt Dante should be getting more support from his remedy, which he had been on for a month already.  I just was not seeing the results I expect from homeopathy.  What followed is an example of the mysterious ways homeopathy works.
