Here is Jackson’s stash of medications, supplements and herbs. We’re treating the viruses, parasites, yeast and worms first and then moving in on the Lyme (hopefully in 5 weeks).
Today, I tried giving Jackson Citramin. It doesn’t say what it’s for on the bottle, but if the doctor says to do it, I’m in.
I’m supposed to give one pill a day. These are big ol’ pills. I broke open the capsule, hollowed out 2 pieces of banana and one strawberry and divided up the powder. Jackson was really hungry after waking up from his nap at 3pm. He hadn’t eaten anything since 9:15am. He immediately went for a banana, ate it, then looked at me. He knew something was in there and he didn’t eat the other piece of banana or strawberry. I didn’t want to shove it in his mouth because I don’t want him to be scared of food. I left it on his tray the rest of the night and he didn’t touch it. I’ll be trying again tomorrow!
I’m realizing Jackson will not be eating much non-medicated food anymore. With all the pills and gels and drops I need to get into his body, every bite he takes is going to have to count.
Stay tuned for tomorrow…Misha and I will give him his first B12 shot. I’ve heard great things about these shots, that they give you an instant energy. I kind of want to steal one from him to try it myself:)
Please, please, please…any ideas on how to get Jackson to eat/swallow pills, let me know. I need all the tricks I can get. I really wish everything came in the form of a shot. Life would be so much easier. But, it is what it is, and I will figure it out for the good of Jackson!
