OK, so I bragged about Yates yesterday......only to find a Sunday morning disaster. Why is church so hard? With fingers crossed and mindful prayers we set about our morning drive
looking somewhat like the Grizwall family. We're a little late of course. Sarah and I sneak
through the doors while Rolf hangs with Yates.....just until the announcements are over. Deep
sigh....all is well. A few moments go by, and then out of nowhere, "COOKIE!!!!" bellows through
sanctuary, "I WANT COOKIE!!!!!" yells a small child from outside the door. My head drops and
I peak at my mother-in law, we smile at each other because we know the cookie monster
personally. OK, so no big deal, Yates wants a cookie. Will Rolf deliver???? that is the million dollar question, but not soon enough! And BOMB! ....he's on a roll, even the choir can not compete with the wails of one Yates Hazlehurst. This must be my cue to exit, and there they
are, one stressed out dad, and one unhappy Yates. Another deep sigh.............we'll try again next Sunday.

Holidays can be so tricky, huh? I've decided to ask Santa for a conversation with my son!
In the meantime, I think a trampoline might be nice. I've also been thinking about all the
parents on the Gluten Free Diet.....OMG!!!! It might be a good idea to have a few digestive
enzymes handy in case there are infractions. I realize my post is all over the place, but
you can ask anyone, that's just me....zig-zag, over here and then over there. It could be
called overwhelmed parenting! :) At any rate, I do have something to share. Every child
is so different and I personally know the rollercoaster of "This is it- we have found the magic
protocol.....only to be disappointed." Therefore, I share this with some reservation- although, it may be worth a try. Almost 4 weeks ago, after a consult with Yate's Peditrician, Dr. Mary
Megson, we tried a new supplement called Enhansa, made by Lee Silsby Compounding Pharmacy. In this first month, I have seen a calmer happier Yates. He seems to be more
in tune to his surroundings and what is going on. I decided to google Enhansa, and guess what?
I found lots and lots of success stories. I'm actually looking forward to month two and more improvements. Some might ask, so what is it and how does it work? Enhansa is Enhansed Absorption Curcumin. It works by increasing glutathione levels to the cells, it improves liver detoxification, it acts as an anti-viral and an anti-fungal, and so on...
If anyone has had any experience, I would love to hear your thoughts! Also, Christmas gifts????
what is everybody doing this year??? Sending out love and hope- Ang.
