Here I sit on the last day of March in 2018 and I can reflect on God's mercy and grace in giving Tyson good health again this past winter. He had one bad cold in December where we kept him home from school for a week to focus on getting him better and let the oils work their magic (and work they did!) but other than that, he's been so so so healthy. A small sniffle or scratchy throat here and there, but nothing that lasted longer than 2 or 3 days. We're so thankful that this past February we could celebrate THREE YEARS hospital-admission free!
We spent March Break in Florida and visited our happiest place on earth again, Give Kids the World. We had our traditional family pic with Mickey and of course went to the beach. We didn't do any theme parks this year because I had a doTERRA leadership event for three days. We were thankful it fell in our kids' March Break so we could make a holiday of it.
The apixaban study is going well. I thought the liquid medication would be a deal-breaker for Tyson since he has oral-texture issues, but he's being such a trooper. It's very helpful that he's being compensated for his participation in the study! Very soon the mini-tablets will be ready for him so he can go back to an oral pill. Tyson has been swallowing pills since he was 3 because he's been on coumadin since he was 2 and it's not available in liquid form. The mini-tabs have been approved by the sponsor company but it has to be reviewed by Sick Kids' ethics board yet so it could be another few weeks yet. We will all be relieved when they are ready! The ingredients in the liquid med are nothing to brag about and actually go against mostly everything I believe in as a crunchy Mom...but hey, we'll do it in the name of research!
For some reason, I just really needed to write today. I needed to put pen to paper (or text to screen ;) and tell the world that Tyson is healthy, God is good, and we are so blessed.
Happy Easter, everyone!
And adios, March!
