About 3:30 Wednesday afternoon the phone rang. I ran for it from across the house in anticipation of THE call. I barely made it before the answering machine picked up. Breathless, I put the phone up to my ear, knowing it was from the children’s hospital.

The tone of voice the sweet Doctor had was one I haven’t heard in relation to Maya in such a long time. There was excitement and hope. She said she couldn’t wait to give me the good news! Maya’s counts were down from 50-60 per biopsy to 5 or less. FIVE!!!!!!!!

That means the elemental diet is working.

It means all the heart ache and work is doing something.

It means that we can actually begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel!

This is a day for celebration as we wait to see what Maya’s medical team want’s to do next.

The Doctor said that Maya’s Allergist may want to wait another few months to let all the damage completely heal, but she needed to talk to him about things first.

The process of reintroducing food will be a long one. It will be a long road more than likely riddled with more heart ache.

But….

We get to start again.

There is hope in that. There is joy. There is peace in knowing that we’re on the right track.

Thank you so much for visiting today, I hope you have a fabulous rest of your day Smile
