I wouldn't believe it myself!

If I hadn't just lived through it, I would not believe it was true. Wednesday morning, guess what I woke up with? More "severe digestive distress." Thankfully, it seems to have been a 48 hour variety instead of the considerably longer version I came down with a short week and a half earlier - it has been a rough 4 weeks.

I've got some herbal remedy ideas from a natural momma/midwife friend of mine, to boost my immune system and hopefully strengthen my overall digestive health. I hope to start on these today so that the next time this nasty bug comes a-knockin' I'll be ready.

Aaron got a mild case, Michael stayed home from work to care for his sick family. He's such a wonderful husband & daddy. The photo is of the boys cleaning a toy at the sink - isn't it so adorable? Please excuse the dirty pans and dishes. I have been sick...and I'll clean up today, I promise!!

Love the picture! I am glad you are feeling better. I was going to call you today and recommend a probiotic, but it sounds like Kelly's got something for you. :-) I pray you are done with this "bug" for good! Hope to see you soon.

Good grief! I certainly hope that this is it for you. I think that I'd rather have a head cold than have a stomach ailment.

I love the pic of your boys:). Michael loves to stand on a chair and "help" me too. It's messy sometimes but it's such fun. Oh, I noticed the dishes and was just about to say something - ha, ha! Just kidding, I wouldn't have even seen them had you not mentioned them:). Feel better soon.

I have a question. My husband gets everything does that boost immune system thing work? If so...what is it?

Jenny - It has been working great for me - I'm taking goldenseal for another day, which is normally not recommended for pregnancy due to the fact that it kind of dries you out, but I'm hydrating like a mad woman so the midwife said it would be fine. It really depends on what sickness you're trying to kick/avoid as to which herbs you use. I'm just learning myself. Does your husband take any vitamin C?

Jenny LaBo said...

He doesn't take anything at all. His stomach is pretty messed up so we have to be really careful of what he takes.

I might have him try papaya enzyme, or acidophilus. (bad spelling) Those are good aids for the digestive system. I used papaya in college for awhile when I had symptoms not unlike IBS.
