Faith Enjoys Easter with the Family

Here Faith is opening her Easter basket with her sister Hope.  She likes the little Donald Duck with the blue ears.

The whole family in our shades of was a lovely day.
Hanging out at home and enjoying the evening.
Faith has been feeling better (not perfect) ever since we started giving her olive oil in her diet.  She has also gained a lot of weight, and now weighs about 31-32 pounds at a little over 3 years old.  She probably gets about 1 tablespoon of oil per day which equals 240 calories in 15 ml or 1/2 an ounce.  Lots of calories are packed into this little bit of oil.  The bleeding from her bowels stopped when we started the oil and it was the only change we made.  A doctor said he didn't think it helped, but we are convinced otherwise.

The last week or so, we have been letting Faith sleep through the night without using her bipap for breathing assistance.  She has done well and seems to sleep better.  She needs the bipap when she is sick and then it helps her sleep better to get over sickness.  This is a happy time to turn off the bipap and get rid of the noise at night.


  1. LOL - most doctors don't ever want to admit that nutrition could have anything to do with it! Yay for olive oil! Faith looks so pretty in her Easter dress. :)

  2. THe entire family looks wonderful! Thank you for Mylah's Easter basket filled with goodies! I think we enjoyed it more than her LOL!
