I was beyond swamped with portraits and ornaments before Christmas and now it's our busiest month for sales with my brother and my business so haven't had to to check in a while! Missed you guys.
The Sophie update is awesome!
After so many bad months, the holistic treatments have finally kicked in and for a couple of weeks now she has been symptom free!!!! She is once again a very happy, silly, funny, NAUGHTY, adorable, precious little girl. Brings her toys to me all the time to play. We passed two milestones this week, I had to leave her for 12 hours one day to get photos of ducks for a painting and had 3 sitters come in shifts that day. Between stress of me not being there and excitement having her aunties come over normally would have really set her off. But she had no symptoms what soever! Then we went to a friends house for dinner and she had a ball, again should have made her sick but nothing!
We have another dog now...sigh. I don't like having more than one dog but Athena the little rescue and Sophie have really bonded. Sophie seems happier with another dog around and of course Athena is loving being spoiled rotten which she deserves after the horrific life she has led. I wasn't going to get another dog ever so I just don't know what happened LOL.
I thank God for Dr. Donna who is the reason Sophie is feeling so good. Her holistic approach took a lot longer than western med but so worth it in the long run. The only thing western vet had to offer her was steroids. Here is a post from Dr Donna
Hi I want to explain that like many cases I see, not one or two things would have helped Sophie. Instead this is a multi-level approach. Because we are so used to conventional medicine, we are looking for that one pill, either natural or not, that will cure a disease. But in holistic medicine we can simultaneously help all of the things that bring on disease. This is why it is essential to seek professional help with tough cases and not try to do it yourself. We are in an age of doing everything yourself but then you can deny the patient a cure. In this case, there were emotional triggers, food allergies, GI bacterial overgrowth problems, enzymatic concerns. So we made numerous lifestyle as well as diet and supplement changes.
I am so grateful to have her I don't know where we'd be without her. She's giving us our lives back for sure.
So that is our story looking forward to hopefully get to check in more often. Here are a few pics. Ok a lot of pics.
