My daughter Audrey Kate was getting no oxygen! Her face and lips started turning blue!
I started to panic! I was freaking out and scared out of my mind! Was I going to lose my sweet little angel?
In that moment I yelled out to my wife I've got to take her to the E.R.!
As I weighed the odds I had a divinely overwhelming feeling, "Stop"!
I listened and I felt this, "You've got this.
Don't take her to the E.R. You can get through this."
In that crazy moment of struggle and a thousand outcomes going wrong...
I had a feeling of peace that everything was going to be all right.
The answer was NOT to take her through the regular mainstream medicine mania!
My sweet little 2 year old had RSV. Respiratory Syncytial Virus. It's basically like having asthma both ways where you can't breathe in or out and your lungs are on fire and start shutting down like pneumonia....
Pretty much - NO OXYGEN!!!
We had just come back from Hawaii 2 days earlier.
I failed to let her young body acclimate to the bitter January cold here in Utah before I took her out sledding all day. By that night she had a little runny nose and very little fever.
I didn't think too much of it and figured it would take care of itself.
The next day she had a raging fever and could barely breathe.
After trying to open her airways with full strength oregano oil topically on her back...
is when she started turning blue. She was panicking. I was panicking! The undiluted oregano oil was burning.
She was trying to suck in more air, but her little lungs wouldn't allow enough oxygen in our out.
Tears streamed from her fearful eyes and her little angel soft cheeks as her lips went from red to blue.
I immediately got the oregano oil wiped off and diluted. I had to sternly calm her down before she passed out.
It was crazy!!!
Finally what seemed like forever... I was able to get her to listen, trust, and settle herself from choking and gasping to calm shallow breathing. Wow - that was intensely difficult.
