We are in the swing of things here. Home schooling is tough but Nora is so smart so we get it done quickly. We have been doing all her work plus specials; PE, Art, Music, Spanish, Library, Technology. We have been doing some experimenting too. Shawn was walking on the beach one day after Irene and found a coconut. We did a report on the coconut and we learned that coconut water can be used in an emergency for a transfusion it’s PH is similar to plasma. Also only people who are from tropical climes do not get Aplastic Anemia. So in our very unscientific way we decided to add coconut milk and water to Nora’s diet. It may be a placebo effect, (and the immune-surpressive drugs are most likely doing their thing), BUT SHE MADE PLATELETS AND RED BLOOD CELLS!!!! She went from 13 to 20!!!! FINALLY we are no longer dropping, no longer status quo, she actually made some blood cells!!!!
We are so ecstatic here!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND PRAYERS!!!! Keep ’em coming!
