Feeling Better but Tired

Samantha was hit pretty hard with another virus. She had been getting better but then on the afternoon of that recent appointment it was clear she was getting a head cold. This new cold began making it's way through the family starting with Daddy and then Mantha followed by Mommy, and the rest of the girls. Though BooBear and Rosie seem to have had it the easiest!

A friend of mine (Hi Jacqueline!) sent me an email with a link to a recipe for GOOT. I don't know what (if anything) Goot stands for but I can tell you what's in it. Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and fresh chopped garlic. I mixed this up and rubbed it on Mantha's little feet, put socks on those feet and in the morning Mantha has been better. She is recovering so much faster with a lot less congestion!

Today she's had a little bit of a runny nose but was able to do Physical Therapy. She did get quite worn out from PT and took a nice little nap this afternoon. She also nearly fell asleep during our family read aloud time tonight but her cough is nearly non-existent.

And we haven't had anymore seizures! Ok so it's only been a few days. Getting sick back to back could have been a seizure trigger so I'm thrilled that we did not have that repeat experience with this go round.


  1. Gonna share the Goot link??

  2. Yes, I'll share both the recipe and the link. It's on the other computer though so I won't get to it tonight.
