I promised to post a follow-up to my last message after we got labs back in October. I'm just now getting around to it, because we've been busy moving.
The labs DID, indeed, come back "perfect." The doctor was amazed. I don't think I've ever seen him smile so much...that was, until I told him I wanted to get my daughter off all the meds as soon and safely as possible. He wanted me to up one of the meds, (imuran), for prevention. First, he tried to accredit the Imuran with her wellness, then I reminded him that he told me the Imuran wouldn't even take effect for over 3 months, (we had only been on it a month at that time). He squirmed a bit and muttered something about it reacting differently in each case. The end of our debate went something like this:
Me: "Okay, so explain to me exactly why you think she needs to up ANY meds, instead of just quitting them all asap."
Doctor: "We don't even know whether or not the Imuran is effective at the dosage she's taking it...it's purely homeopathic and might not even be doing anything at this point."
My only comment was, "Exactly."
He was just sitting there unable to argue these perfect labs with me, unwilling to listen or educate himself on the facts of this vitamin E treatment. He, basically, fled the room without telling me how to get her off the meds, so I have been slowly decreasing them by half-dosages since. She should be "clean" by mid-December.
SO FAR, SO GOOD! I'll will try to update again at the end of the treatment, and hopefully, I'll have more positive news again at that time.
Everyone take care, be well, and have happy holidays.
