Back in balance
As suggested by the urgent care doctor, I kept Isaac home all day yesterday to stuff protein, fat, water, and probiotics down his throat. The plan from the night before did not happen, mostly because he refused to eat the breakfast sandwich and because I couldn't find the blades to my food processor to make the strawberry protein shake. Typical. His breath was already smelling less yeasty due to switching up his probiotics the night before, and his appetite for things other than bread was much more agreeable. So we compromised and gave him gfcf oatmeal with some soy protein powder mixed in. Oatmeal is a good source of both protein and fiber on its own. He then went on to eat two pieces of Applegate Farms bacon, one AF chicken tender, strawberries, pears, half a turkey sandwich, more probiotics, lots of water, tuna and pretzels, brown rice fried in coconut oil (for good fat), and broccoli with vegan butter. By the end of the night he was back to being himself, had the breath of a four year old without a drinking problem, and is in school today. I love it when a plan comes together! But I think it was more than just a yeast problem, because the bug hit me for part of yesterday and I felt like I had been hit by a truck. One missed day of school and lots more tools and products to help our kid function better? Not a bad deal.
