Cally was born at 32 weeks via emergency c-section (I had complete placenta previa and multiple abruptions, we basically came close to bleeding to death, I also have autoimmune bleeding disorder (perfect combination right?).
Cally has been sick since the day I first took her out of our home. Basically back to back sickness since then and only has periods of good health during summer months. I was not able to breast fed (literally went blind trying to!) her. She even had pneumonia on her first birthday. This last sickness was a doosie, with very bad coughing that kept her from sleep. Nothing helped. It was totally awlful. Each time I say to myself, "wow, this last sickness was worse than the last time!".
Now that she's two we still experience back to back sickness. She literally has been well for a few days inbetween each illness (lately). I feed her very healthy, organic foods with fruits and veggies, free range eggs, etc. She receives no dairy or wheat products. She goes for allergy testing later this month.
The worst part of this sickness thing is she becomes hyper active when sick, and is unresponsive to obedience. It's extremely frustrating and those few days I have my "healthy" Cally back, I'm so relieved to have a normal child.
I've tried all the natural stuff to make her well, herbs, homeopathy, diet, etc. I'm not sure what else to do. I'm kinda sad about it and guess I am looking for other parents who face this issue! Does it get better?
