Diarrhea? hmm.. Could be the Celery!


It's been another few days of whirlwind. Thankfully this time my son didn't end up in the hospital for his kidney disease. Nonetheless, his few sleepless insomnia nights were followed by our worries during daytime, and chills of fearing that he would end up in the hospital came yet again for the 5Th time in the last 2 months.

The worst part of the whole thing of the last few days, besides his insomnia, was diarrhea. There could be all sorts of reasons why he suffered from diarrhea; Reasons could be his body's natural defense system ridding of toxins and unwanted substances. Another reason, was his love for celery!

For whatever reason, my son loves celery! He could munch down legions and legions of celery! It would be heaven if he could find a restaurant that serves only celery buffet! I know he didn't get this from me because I hate celery and simply can't stand it. Celery somehow makes me feel bloated, full of acid and very uncomfortable all over. When my wife was giving birth to our son, my mother-in-law came to visit and help out around the family for about two months. I remember distinctly there was a time when she cooked us some celery with chicken that landed me on the bed bloated for a few days. I simply didn't eat for 3 days and I couldn't wait to get rid of it from my body. It was a horrible feeling and left me suffering from acid reflux throughout the whole night. My mother-in-law is a great cook but the celery simply didn't mix well with my system. Till this day, I have not told her why I stay in the bed during that period of time. She thought I was just too tired helping out at night with the baby.

On the other hand, my son craves for celery. He eats them raw or cooked! He would dip them in sauce or eat them together with meat. Celery is very high on fiber and it often acts as natural laxative. Perhaps that also help explains why he would need to go for number two during the middle of each meal! There was one time when we took him shopping at the local grocery store where he shouted out loud, "Where is my SA-lary?" that resulted in a few smirks among the other shoppers around us. Naturally I responded back to him, you are not old enough to receive a salary from daddy but you are certainly allowed to have an small allowance. Quietly later on, I would correct his pronounciation once again! Ceeelllerrry and not Salary! Well there are other things he would say at the grocery story! :P (See Patient King)

My son is finally feeling better after suffering from fever, diarrhea and stomach pain. The last time he had these symptoms, he ended in the emergency room followed by a few days in the hospital. Nowadays I realize more and more on what my parents went through with me when I was ill. I have learn to appreciate them even more. I see my son as they saw me. When I suffered they did too. For a long time, I didn't understand why my mom always had a sluggish persona. I finally fully comprehend after staying up with my son for a few nights. This is the price of being a parent and it's all worth it especially when he wakes up in the morning with a smile and says...I am hungry! I want breakfast! and I love you Daddy!

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your
favourite reason appeared to be at the web the easiest factor to have in
mind of. I say to you, I definitely get irked whilst folks think about worries that they just do not understand about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top as smartly as outlined out
the whole thing with no need side-effects , folks can take a signal.
Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

After all, that is what catering in all its forms is about.
This is especially true of schools that have already established
themselves in the online education space. The buyout

I understand that those are the products designed by manufacturers
to make them money and if they are endorsed by winning
popular professionals, sales will be high. It combines RPG elements and strategy for a very interesting game where you must stop the rows of pirates ship from making their way down
the river. Preparing to apply to the dozens of other game development companies for video game jobs will enable you to expand
and diversify your list of possible employers, and your
chances of getting hired will increase tremendously.

The developers are saying that Defiance is a pixel
perfect shooter, so if you aim at your target's head it WILL be a headshot instead of the invisible dice rolling a 5 and telling you that you somehow missed. It should come as no surprise that i - Tunes is loaded full of pirate apps for i - Phone, i - Pod Touch, and i - Pad. The main reason why you would want to do this is simple, you can unlock the true potential of your purchase.

Try simple games and check how your internet connection is and then move on play more games.
Imagine never having to worry about what to wear to work,
and even the infuriating traffic jams that never seem

On the other extreme, very black skin is usually limited to larger lined black tattoos only.
Chris has been running Design My Tattoos website for the last three months.

These tattoos will show up more clearly as the skin around them changes color due to
tanning or a fading tan, but white and brown ink tattoos are also very hard to spot, making
them a good choice for someone who wants a tattoo that won't draw a lot of attention in a visible location, as on the forearms.

Both drugs have also been denied FDA approval the first
time around and are awaiting news on their second attempt.

Authorities inside the area will need to have an intensive understanding of
laboratory and labeling techniques, infection security
precautions, appropriate blood attract approaches to the elderly and for infants and even more.
That way, the actual process will end up being much less frustrating and, for the majority of people, enjoyable.

I cover my freshly sharpened hook with paste and coat the hair

find a boat to rent for Michigan fishing. All the equipment is included in your deep sea fishing charter Cancun and the boat is so nice you
will want to take advantage of the luxury fishing afforded from

Break your 3 normal main meals into 5 smaller portion sizes - morning, snack, lunch,
snack, dinner. Vitamin B3 or also called as Niacin is important in weight
loss because it is responsible for the regulation of thyroid
hormones and also in sugar levels in the body.

I don't leave many responses, however i did a few searching and wound up here "Diarrhea? hmm.. Could be the Celery!". And I do have some questions for you if it's allright.
Is it only me or does it look as if like a few of these
responses look as if they are written by brain dead people?
:-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
Would you list of the complete urls of all your social pages like your Facebook page,

I have been surfing on-line more than 3 hours nowadays,
yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours.
It's pretty value sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you did, the web will likely be much more useful than ever before.

Break your 3 normal main meals into 5 smaller portion sizes - morning, snack, lunch,
snack, dinner. Vinson had participants keep their normal diet and exercise routines (or lack thereof) and
merely added the green coffee. When you're about to start on your weight loss plan, it's a
good idea to think about your end goal and chunk it down into smaller goals.
