"Get over your hill and see what you find there
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair"
-Mumford and Sons
One of the best interventions we've used in the past with Little Bird has been Flagyl, an antibiotic used to kill the bacterial overgrowth in her gut. If you've been reading for a while, you know I love this drug and I talk about it ALL the freaking time. If you're new, catch up and find out more by
Trying to remember that this could be a form of die-off: the bacteria gets stirred up by the antibiotic and kind of activates the bird. That's probably my best case scenario, actually. Hoping it's die-off and that this will pass quickly. Gave her some miralax tonight to help get rid of the stuff that's in her. Going through the die-off period is always scary because it brings up all the feelings that come with a "dip", the down part of the roller coaster: is she really going through a "down period"? is she gonna come back soon? is this forever?
So, I heard this line in a song last night and it made me hope that we'd get over this hill... with flowers in our hair.
