"It bounces off the wall at you
when the miracle is happening"
There's an interesting twist to all this work I do with my bird.... you never really know what is working and what isn't. When she's making progress we wonder: is it the therapies? diet? supplements? time? Who knows? Still, we carry on and do it all. And I mean ALL.
So you know how I've posted about the New Deal and all the new supplements I'm giving her? Yes, you do. Everybody does. I know this because people who live in my community stop me in the grocery store (hi Michelle!), clothing stores (hi Fawn!), waiting area in delicious sushi restaurants (hi Suzy!), etc to ask me how the new supplements are going. I appreciated that people are interested and some even seem to genuinely care about it all. It's only been 10 days since we've begun the New Deal and here's the update:
We've started about 8 supplements so far:
Creatine, Vitamin D drops, Cal/Mag, MethylFolate, Liquid E, Enzym-complete Isogest, CoQ10, Pro EFA fish oil.
And 4 new probiotics:
ProBio Gold, Theralac, Symbion, Probiotic Complete.
For some reason, one of the ingredients in the B12 shots has been on backorder, so the compounding pharmacy (where they actually mix it all together) doesn't have it to make up yet. I'm fine with that. I'm also waiting until I get her settled on these supplements before we start the month-long course of vancomycin and nystatin.
So far, she's doing really, really well. Good focus and attention, and she seems to feel okay, too. She's happy and fun. Oh, and what's a Dani G post without a little poop talk? She was having really loose, mushy poops, so I cut the Cal/Mag in half. She's had a funny reaction to Magnesium in the past, so I kind of expected that. It's pretty typical, actually. Ha! Something is "typical" with the bird :)
You click and I smile. It's that simple.
