Happy Day 20 & 21: The Most Beautiful Arms in the World

Why are these the most beautiful arms in the world?
Because they are eczema-free!!!

Last April I wrote a post about Paige's painful eczema that she's had since birth, mostly on her arms. We'd tried everything we could find to try, including a very strict diet for years and nothing helped, nothing worked. A new miracle lotion would work for a week or two and then magically stop working. Nearly every night was bloody sheets and waking up to put more lotion/oil/ointment on to ease the itchiness and pain. Our lives really revolved around it in a lot of ways. I know there are a lot of eczema sufferers out there, so we definitely weren't alone.

But then I wrote that post. And I don't know what it was exactly (several of you mentioned that you were praying and even fasting for Paige) but in about two weeks it was gone. Just gone!! Occasionally, in the past, she'd have a "clear-up" time, so I fully expected it to come back in the sweaty heat of summer. It didn't. But I knew it would be back in the fall, because spring and fall were her worst times of the year. Fall came. Eczema didn't. We couldn't believe it! We started slowly reintroducing things into her diet and there was still no eczema. I hesitated to announce it joyfully to you all before spring, because she's always, always had a horrible time in spring and part of me really thought we would at least have some sort of outbreak. And about a month ago she had a few days of mild itchiness, but that was all! No bleeding. No scaly patches. Nothing. So Paige sleeps all night now. And eats ice cream and wheat bread and more candy than she should, just like a normal kid. :o)

So thank you, whoever you were that was praying for her! And thank you God, who always answers prayers, and sometimes even answers them exactly the way I want. ;O)

Definitely something to be happy about.

Goodnight, dears! Hope you have a great weekend!
Love,
Disney

  4. That is wonderful news. My daughter also was born with a horrible case of eczema and after a trip to a mineral spring in Georgia (the country) where we live, and three months of intensive praying, it has nearly disappeared as well. God still works miracles.

  9. My daughter, Olive, had really bad eczema as a baby for years. We tried EVERYTHING. Then, finally, we took her to Dr. Sivieri in Columbia, MD. He suggested we do a blood test that measures IgE (I think that is what they are called). It basically measures anitbodies our bodies create when our bodies do not like certain foods or cannot process them. It is different than being an allergy which affects our immune system. Anyway, Olive's test came back with 28 food items her body didn't like - soy, eggs, gluten, dairy, pineapple, etc. - we cut all 28 out and within 5 weeks her skin was crystal clear. Like magic! We had tried taking out food groups for years, but didn't realize it was 28 different food groups/foods - especially HUGE food groups like gluten, soy, etc. To give her body a break, we then kept that 28-free diet for two years. Dr. S thought that would give her body time to heal internally and mature. Now, she is 8 and can eat everything, though we try to stay within moderation. :)

  18. Eczema is a very unpleasant disease and it is really nice to know that you finally got rid of it. A couple of years ago I had it too but the doctor helped me to cure it and now I am also happy to be free from it.

  21. This is such wonderful news. You had mentioned she kept her arms covered and I had noticed she had her arms exposed in some of your recent posts so I was wondering if it had cleared up. Yay!!!
