I’ve started to read a little bit about Essential Oils.
I’m going to get a little diffuser for next to Noah’s bed, that will create a mist and then add an essential oil (tea tree oil or eucalyptus), for when he’s sleeping.
It’s been suggested for Noah by a couple of doctors in the past, but I didnt really think about it because I always considered essential oils to be ‘hocus pocus’ medicine.
But, my nurse last week in the hospital said essential oils really cured her mono when nothing else would work…I figured it can’t hurt to read about it.
I guess essential oils are like super strong plant chemicals, and most medications are derived from plants, so it actually makes sense it could work…
Anyhow, it won’t hurt Noah, and may provide some benefit to him as well–
Preventative preventative preventative.
And jumping on things *immediately* when they start, so they don’t turn into a much stronger (and more expensive) infection.
That’s going to be making sure that Noah has relationships with doctors who know his case and understand the complexity behind it, so they trust Noah when Noah says something is starting to go wrong (where for most patients with the same symptoms they might wait).
And of course there’s always Dr. Jeffrey Sherman for when you’re really in a bad spot. Once Noah turns 18, he should go see Dr. Sherman at least once every three months to stop in and say hello, so Dr. Sherman is aware of what’s happening–
Money money money…coding coding coding and writing writing writing. I told Noah I’m going to start teaching him how to write screenplays after he’s finished with his novel.
(I don’t want Noah to get into the bad habit of starting things and not finishing them 🙄.)
He actually seemed to be a little intrigued to learn about screenplay writing…especially after working on novels for the last few years, screenplay writing is going to seem like a piece of cake 😎.
