I’m so hopeful that I am on to something here! I’ve spoken with 3 specialists this week who all agree with me that A’s liver is a problem. 2 could feel her liver and one built a treatment plan around a liver that isn’t working that well. A few years ago I would have thought that all of these people were nuts, but not anymore. 1 treated the liver, 1 told me to use the methods I have to treat the liver, and the 3rd told me that the liver is associated with anger. I’ve been doing all the liver treatments I have for about the past week and guess what happened??? A got a fever!!!
I am beyond excited about this. A hasn’t had a fever since she was an infant. And actually I’m not sure if she has ever truly had a fever. I hear all these parents with children who have fevers of 104 and that is definitely not what is happening in our house. If you are reading this and wondering why I am excited about a fever, I will explain what I know. From what I have been told your body needs to be working properly to produce a fever. A fever is there to kill a germ in your body. If you have a weakened immune system you will not produce a fever. A had a fever last night and threw up. Throw up is not exciting but a fever is. She still has the fever today. It is low grade – 100 or less. But she is usually below 98.6.
If I want to spend time worrying I would notice that C has never actually had a fever either. But I am not going to dwell on that. Today we had the most lovely day. A stayed home and C had afternoon kindergarten. We played and watched shows. Then A and I had special time. We have never had that because the girls are so close in age. A may have had a fever but she wasn’t sick. We had a great afternoon crafting.
I know that some kids who are like A will spike a fever of 105 and that doesn’t;’t mean they are healthy. I hope that this little spike in temp has to do with a better functioning liver. I also wish I could explain this better to people who aren’t in our situation. Because like I said, 3 years ago this would have been nutso to me, but not anymore.
