Given my own healing reaction to the African shaman’s visit, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that my sensitive son had a huge reaction to the shaman’s visit. Moses didn’t even meet the shaman, but responded to his visit by developing eight abscesses. The first one a few days before his visit and six more after:
- one on his left armpit, which miraculously disappeared one night;
- one on the right side of his mouth, in his mouth, which has disappeared;
- one on his groin, which burst on its own;
- two on his bum, one that burst on its own (thankfully yesterday) and another smaller one that hopefully will resolve on its own;
- one on his right armpit, which will be drained by a surgeon on Monday (if he doesn’t drain on its own before then); and
- one on the right side of his head, which will be drained by a surgeon on Monday, and another one just started below this one tonight.
I’ve seen it again and again and again. It’s definitely not my imagination, but Moses develops abscesses as a healing reaction — to homeopathy, to reflexology, to Wish games, and to other energetic work. I hope that like other healing reactions, Moses will be at a healthier place after this is all over. I pray that is the case. I trust that it will be so.
Thankfully, thankfully, thankfully, Moses’ amazing surgeon who we love assessed him this past Wednesday and although two of the abscesses were ready for drainage, he made the decision to defer the drainage until Monday because our family had a mini-vacation planned for Thursday and Friday (time away with Moses’ favourite cousin and his family at a beach and a cabin), and we also planned our family’s first camping trip after that. We all had a great time during our mini-vacation at the beach and cabin (photos to come).
But, Moses started showing more sensitivities. Intense abdominal pains after eating while we were at the cabin on Thursday (which thankfully passed after putting DigestZen essential oil blend on his belly). On Friday, after eating at his favourite restaurant (Swiss Chalet) – one of the only restaurants where Moses can eat – he complained that his lips were itchy and couldn’t finish his meal. We decided not go to to the camping trip due to weather and also Moses’ increased sensitivities. It was probably a good thing that we did because tonight (Saturday), he had an anaphylactic reaction (extremely swollen tongue) to canned baked beans (which appeared to have safe ingredients within it). We spent six hours at the hospital and he needed an epinephrine shot (which caused him to be hysterical since he hates needles), in addition to other oral medications. Ack!
So….. Moses is definitely going through a sensitive period and DH and I are going to go back to being extra cautious about foods and cross-contamination. I’m praying that after these abscesses heal, his body (and the whole family) will have another break. We have a family vacation planned to visit my family, half-way across the country in a couple of weeks and I hope that things will settle down by then and that we can have a relaxing vacation.
Thanks for listening and also for your prayers. I do pray and trust that things will settle down for us after these last two abscesses are drained.
