Learning How To Take Care of Your Family

I've always said to others I talk about Young Living with that we need to know how to take care of ourselves and our family. But it has hit me like a brick wall the past several weeks!
      My daughter started with severe pain in her abdomin almost 4 weeks ago. A couple days later she started throwing up and since then she's done nothing but throw up. She's 16 and fairly healthy for the most part. After a couple days throwing up and being in pain we took her to the doctor. I was doing all the things I knew to do. He suspected maybe appendix like we did. He scheduled a Ultrasound to see.
   As most of you know I'm a mom to 11. I can't just up and run here and there. So
found someone to sit with the kids and off we went first thing that morning to get ultrasound. When we arrived we were asked if she was told to drink so many ounces of water. Um no, we were told she shouldn't eat or drink after midnight. So they gave her some water to drink while we waited. We finally got called back and the ultrasound tech asked us what was going on. We told her and she said she was not going to be able to see what needed to be seen on ultrasound and my daughter needed a CT. UGH! So , got in touch with doctors office and they ordered a CT even though they said you could see what needed to be seen on a ultrasound.( Mind you folks we are self pay, we have a Christian share health insurance). So then they said she needed to drink this drink and come back in like a hour. Okayyyyy.... so , I run home nurse the baby and go back. CT is done. Nothing shows up on CT. So the doctors office chalked it up to a bad virus. Which I knew it wasn't. I KNOW what to do for a virus.
     So another several days goes by and still throwing up. No better. We go BACK to the doctor and she is referred to a GI doctor. Said it is her gall bladder. So when we see this doctor he sends her for a Ultrasound. So, we already have done CT, blood work, and urine. Now, we are going back for what was originally ordered. She goes for her ultrasound. NO stones show up. So, the doctor seems stumped. He schedules more test and gives us our options which are mostly surgery. So we pray and pray some more.
   Decided to go to the doctor I go to for my thyroid issues. She seemed to think gall bladder probably too but checked for h pylori. Gave her meds and supplements to stop throwing up and to support the gall bladder. I had to call several times to get any help because she is still throwing up. They were suppose to call her in a different med last night for the throwing up and when we called to see if CVS had it... NOPE. So, surely it would be done today when I went to get groceries this morning.. Went by there, they didn't have a order. So..... talked to the doctors office again and went BACK to town. This medicine was $150!
    During all this the only thing she has really kept down totally is NingXia Red. It is a juice type thing from Young Living that has tons of nutrients, vitamins, and such. I honestly believe that is the ONLY reason she is not in the hospital. I have used several supplements and oils. I say all this to say I am super thankful for the research and knowledge I already had because we have been so lost as to what to do. Please learn ways to take care of your family naturally. I want to say so much more but I also want to not judge anyone we have had contact with during this whole journey started. Just please pray for our daughter to be healed and pray for wisdom for us and the doctors.
    I realize we live in a sinful world. We are going to get sick no matter what we do sometimes but knowing how to take care of someone you love is so very important!! After going through all of this I'm thankful I have my Lord and Savior to fall back on and I know He has big plans for my daughter. I'm thankful he left things here that we can take care of our families with!! To see your daughter throw everything up is horrible so when we realized she was keeping NingXia Red down I was so happy. God bless you all. We truly appreciate everyone who is praying.

It is very hard!! You try your best and think your doing your best and things like a non functioning gallbladder happen. My daughters had to be removed when she was 14. Other than a horse shoe scar she is doing great!! Keep your head up and God Bless You and your family!!
