This is from Joan W

Tell everyone I miss them and to email me at  I leave the house at 7:30am to go to work 55 miles from my house and get home usually around 8:00pm if not 9:00pm. I have also started up a Neighborhood Watch program (which is sorely needed here) and have now been asked by the Alderman to head up the Neighborhood Association. I am also working on the UC Central website that I hope to have online by next month.  It will not be a forum, but an informational site where everyone can go to get what they need. I am spread so thin I barely have time to answer emails.

I think I told you, my son is home with me now and not going to school. He is going to take this quarter off. I can't seem to get him into a total remission and he is so tired of my bugging him on what to take that he won't take anything I offer. The current flare has been going on since the anti-parasite drug but it is not horrible. It has been 3 1/2 weeks since the drug and the flare seems to be slowing down. Frequency and blood are getting better. The pain level is dropping too, but he still can't function at a level needed for college. We have the kit to send to to see if all the Blastos are gone, if the yeast population is down, and if the VSL#3 is doing its job in building up the good bacteria.

I am also going to take him to Pfeiffer Treatment Center in Warren Illinois. It is not too far from us. It was started as a research center for Autistic Children and has blossomed into a testing center, a lab, a compounding pharmacy and treatment center. They run a full battery of tests at the cellular level and treat the body from the micro-nutrient persepective by compounding specific nutrients designed for the person.  A man who emailed me, after finding my posts on copper toxicity on Healing Well, has a 37 year old son who had severe emotional and sleep problems from the time he was 11.  I got him in contact with  skimom the RN and she sent him to Pfeiffer Treatment Center. Pfeiffer found that he had been suffering from Lyme disease all these years and with treatment he is now doing much better.

I hope Hailey is still doing well. You can post this on Healing Well if you want.
