So in truth, it's the meds AND the food combining no sugar, low acid diet AND the Slippery Elm that are keeping her esophagus safe and healthy. Which also tells me that her reflux is THAT bad that she needs all of that still. The small bubble of hope exists in the fact that we have not upped her medication dosages on the Cisipride, Protonix, or Zantac in over one year. Will she grow out of needing them some day? That' s a question that can only be answered by looking at her brain damage and believing and brain plasticity and hoping that some of the alternative therapies we do with her help heal her brain. Hoping too that stem cell research will continue and find a cure for brain damage that is with out the risk it is today.
Signing off, from Earth, feet on the ground, trying to see it how it really is.
