Number 9 arrived April 4th. Alexis is beautiful with lots of dark hair and huge eyes and my husband's and her dad's big chin cleft. She had very "wet lungs" at first, and an IV was started right away to give her anit-biotics. Since her white blood cell was a little high yesterday, they worried about infection and are keeping her for two more days. Luckily, since our doctor knows how sensitive the baby's father is, he ordered that the mother stay with her the entire time to nurse her, since he knows how badly Mike(our son) reacted to formula. Our son had a fit when they had to put an IV in her little hand...and of course, he doesn't like them in the first place...but with the scare of possible pneumonia, which is common when there is too much fluid left in the lungs, he came to accept what was done. She is doing great today. Our son's story is on our site, for those believing that they can't function due to MSG symptoms. He too, thought he couldn't continue with his education. His symptoms were debilitating headaches, inabiltiy to concentrate, dizziness, and numbness in his arms. Once he learned to avoid MSG, he went on to finish school and now owns his own chiropractic practice and has a new baby. He and his wife (luckily, she cooks very carefully and avoids MSG herself)just built their first home and are very anxious to move in. This young man of 28 truly thought his life was over at 21. To those who are new and who have just found us, please just hang in there, and trust what we have to share at this site.

Congratulations on the birth of your new granddaughter! I have read your son's story. He is fortunate to have parents plugged in and willing to exhaust resources to get to the bottom of his illness. Just think of the many sensitivities that go undiagnosed.

Thanks, dianne. These little ones sure tug at our heartstrings, don't they. We all want a safer and healthier world for them...but for now, they have lots of love. Glad your grandson is okay now.
