Holistic Medicine

Still taking my son to an acupuncturists, things are going really good.... So now I am seeing an acupuncturist/herbalists! She is fantastic,I totally recommend It, haven't felt this great in years! Amazing how one, one hour session brought new life to me.. not you all will feel this... but i went to another in the past and never got this type of results! Why am I telling you.. well I'm getting older and I need to continue to be there for my son and I need to be in tip top shape!! I won't be any good to my son If I continue to suffer from migraine headaches, hip pain, lower back pain and major fatigue!
In just one session I feel like a whole new person and I have no fatigue!!! Interested in where I went... Well the place is called Marco Polo's on 2nd St. in Morgan Hill.. Her name is Michelle, yes she is Chinese and a professor, she works on medical points and works to bring your Chi to full balance and my Chi was not moving, but it is now! amazing how our ailments can be seen on our tongues.. everything I knew that was wrong with me, she told me just by looking at my tongue!

So now on to Everett, He is walking better these days, some issues with the right side and not as bad as before. He walks with a cane and doing well. He gets tired and some pain in his back just from trying to stay upright and walk.... that little thing we all take advantage of. I never really thought about it until I watched my son trying to turn around, in an isle at the store, and he makes a giant circle just to turn around. Something we can all do very quickly in one spot.

Here's a fun Photo we took at Walmart today!! ha ha

We are still working on his memory : (   His past is still in the past... Short term is still not there either, but he tries very hard everyday, we constantly work on re-call everyday to help him to remember!!
Don't get me wrong he has memory, like Math.. I know really yup Math, and his favorite bands and lyrics. Choir he loves it and remembers all of the lyrics.. speaking is a small minor issue but when he sings... He sings like an Angel!!
Everett competed with his choir 2 weeks ago at University of San Luis Obispo, he did fabulous and the crown cheering him on his friends helped him to the top of the risers, it was such an emotional moment for me... he had just gotten is new AFO, leg brace, that week and it allowed him to stand for 30 minutes, it was magnificent a beautiful Miracle!!

This is a picture of his last big performance at the San Juan Bautista Mission. That is Ev with his good friend Jeffrey, Me and his Aunt and Grandma on his dads side. Ev standing down front during the concert.. There was no back to the risers so he stayed at the bottom.

Well I need to make dinner, please consider  making a donation towards Everett's medical bills, every bit helps.

Thank you Have a fabulous Evening!

Getting Stronger

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone read this?? Well any who it's been a while.. Everett is moving right along. His Physical and Occupational therapy is going well. He is getting stronger and smarter everyday!
I get secretly emotional every time he gets to a new mile stone!

Ev has had headaches on and off nothing major this time but he was dialed up again.. so he can have more fluid in his brain. (Dialed up) we he has a permanent shunt in his brain which has a small valve that opens and closes, it controls and drains the fluid in his brain, without the shunt his brain would fill up with too much fluid or may drain to fast causing more drain damage.

Everett is back in school, we had a boring Spring Break and lots of Dr's appointments and therapy sessions. I just started Ev on Neuro acupuncture, his first session went well, extremely expensive, and as his mother I will do anything help him get better. He did well with the needles in his head. It was interesting all that they do. So the needles were placed in certain areas of his head, she would ask questions and would massage the area where the needle was placed and would then have him move a limb, this went on for a while. All needles placed then he had to do some physical movements and stretches, then massage the area again. I swear it was working!! The freaky part for me they sent him home with me with the needles still in his head!!! Ahhh this was to continue to bring good energy to his affected areas.
I tell ya he was so funny all the way home in the middle of heavy traffic!! I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes. He was just signing songs, like he always does, being extra silly and gesturing to me with funny looks on his face!

The needles in his head!

Ev had quite a bit of homework over Spring Break, it took him a few days to do his Math, but he did it on his own with little help! So proud of him!

The day after his acupuncture appointment his phone was reactivated, he had been trying to unlock his phone for a couple of days and could not figure out the puzzle code, so Saturday Shazam he got it the first try!! yeahhhh He just remembered!

His memory is still gone but he has moments when he remembers things, day to day is still very difficult for him. I can't imagine what he's thinking, wondering why he can't remember anything.
It's like Ground Hog day, almost reliving the day... he just has no memory of his day! I am glad that he remembers me now.... his mom!

The one thing I really love and Enjoy Every Day I His Big Smile!! This is Ev taking a break from his math homework with a big smile on his face!!!

Me and my daughter go walking a lot, so last week Everett says, "I wanna go for a walk." so ok I didn't think he was up for it but he went as far as he could walking with his cane! Big Smile On His Face!

Well I need to clean up and get him ready for a shower! You all Have a fabulous evening/Day!
Hug your loved ones, tell your children, parents significant other you Love them.. because you never know what tomorrow may bring!
