I think I shouldn’t be saying this to the world, but since this is her journal, a diary for her online, I wanted to simply post what I had discovered yesterday on her hair and what I am going to do about it.
Like any other growing kids, there will come a time that some parasite will grow, either on or in their bodies. In our case, it’s on the head. Yes, she got lice!
When I checked her head yesterday, I was really, really surprised to see that she has lice! And a lot of it!
I didn’t know where she’d get them, because I don’t have them and she’s not even playing under the hot sun. All I could think of maybe one of her classmates has them and she got infected, or maybe from somewhere else. I really don’t know!
What I know is, I should take care of it ASAP! So, yesterday I took time to searched her head for lice (eggs and moms) and I found a lot of dead eggs and live ones. I didn’t get to catch a ‘mommy parasite’, we call it that. I searched for it by hand because I don’t have any comb for lice as of now. I am not prepared for her to have this. It is so very early. I had them when I was 10 or 11 years old, and Little Zoie is just 5.
Anyway, today I searched for more. Just like yesterday, I caught dead and live eggs. And I was glad to catch 2 mommy parasite, they were so fast! So, by tomorrow I need to have that comb for lice, suyod, and the anti-lice shampoo that I just read in a forum. I remember using an anti-lice shampoo when I was a kid but I can’t remember the name. It was really effective. Now, I’m going to try that to my Little Zoie and I’m hoping we’ll get rid of those pesky parasite out of her little head.
I will not stop until all of them are dead and gone!
Two days ago we went to see Zoie’s pedia (doctor), along with baby Matti for his newborn screening, because of her high fever since I gave birth to baby Matti. That means, she’s been having fever for 3 days then. No snowboard jacket in use but only diligent cooling of Litte Zoie just to keep her fever down.
I’ve been up for two nights to check on Little Zoie and breastfeed for baby Matti. That is quite a tasks for two nights only to find out that her UTI is back again and an additional coughing. Sheesh, what a burden for a little girl!
Good thing the antibiotics is giving good effects and the fever hasn’t come back so far and the coughing is subsiding. We need to keep Ate Zoie away from baby Matti for a while because of her cough. We don’t want the baby getting cough too.
In today’s world, depression is a common problem. Depression has become one of the most persistent medical issues in the United States, and it is the primary cause of medical disability in the country. Treatment of depression is vitally important. Left untreated, depression can lead to further problems such as alcoholism and suicide. There are many medications targeted at treading depression on the market today.
However, in many cases the patient does not respond well to these drugs. Side effects of these medications can include stroke, diabetes, brittle bones, weakened immune system, and violent or suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Babies born to mothers who took antidepressants during pregnancy often suffer from low birth weight, neonatal seizures, and other maladies. Those suffering from depression should be aware that there are natural, drug-free alternatives to dealing with depression.
A good nutritional supplement to begin with is fish oil. Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids composed of both DHA and EPA. Patients with low blood levels of DHA are more likely to suffer from symptoms of depression. It is important to note that DHA is concentrated in brain tissues and assists with the transmission of nerve impulses. Because omega-3 fatty acids cannot be manufactured by the body, including them in the diet is vital. Without this critical nutrient the brain cannot function properly. One study has shown a 45 percent reduction in suicidal thoughts in patients who were given 2 grams of omega-3 fatty acids daily. Ovitaminpro.com is a trusted source of fish oil supplements. The varied selection will provide something for everyone!
