Vaccinations.....Good or Bad??????

Just a little note for anyone who reads my blog, in hope that people will look into what vaccines their children are receiving. I'm not trying to convince against vaccines, I'm only trying to help everyone become more educated about risks and benfits of each vaccine. This way parents can become involved and make an educated decision on which vaccines their children are to receive, as well as what signs and symptoms to look for in case of reaction. The website is a very informative site. I think I put a link at the bottom of this entry.
My son Wyatt received his 2 month shots, then 2 days later a horrible rash appeared on his chest, back, legs and arms. The rash turned into sores on his back, causing him to scream every time he was in his car seat or sweaty. My husband and I questioned whether the vaccines caused this reaction, but took him to a Dermatologist anyway. Wyatt received 3 different ointments that did not work. To make a long story short Dr Scharenberg(chiropracter), related the rash to the vaccines, treated him using Diothermy and the rash was gone in 2 days. I then attempted multiple times to voice my concerns w/the Pediatrician and his nurses, but was never heard. Wyatt ended up receiving his 4-month vaccines and an hour later had hives allover his chest and back. The Dr. was worried this was going to cause breathing difficulties and possibly anaphylactic shock. He placed Wyatt on Prednisone and instructed me to watch him very carefully throughout the night. He's currently on the Prednisone, which is making his stomach hurt and giving him insomnia. All in all, Wyatt is ok, but I don't want any other parent to have this experience. Please educate yourself on possible side effects and make your voice heard w/your Pediatrician. I feel I let Wyatt down by not making sure the Dr listened to my concerns an answered my questions. Please don't you do the same. You are your childs only voice!!

Brady's Pride Possession

Since I am a widow every year from October to December, I had to post these pictures of Brady's 12-point he killed the morning after Halloween. I'm ecstatic that he's finished so early this year. You should have seen the look on our neighbors face when he and his friend Travis had a photo-shoot in our front yard. Quite a site!!

More Pumkin Patch

Pumpkin Patch

Mom and I took the kids, finally, to the pumpkin patch Halloween day. We had a blast. There was a huge pillow jumper (the coolest thing ever) which took up the majority of our time. It's like a huge trampoline w/no weight limit and sand on the sides to cushion your fall. Hannah enjoyed the bin full of corn. She's making a snow (corn) angel in one of the pics. We then found ourselves lost in the corn maze for about an hour. We had to make our own path to get out!Tons of fun!!
