Tristan is amazing us more and more each day!  We feel blessed.  Lately he has decided to start playing with toys and reading books - two things he had no interest in before.  He has really started interacting more and more with his young brother Jake.  This picture from Halloween is the first time we were not only able to get him to stand next to Jake, but to look at the camera.  He did this on command.  This simple task is such a big deal in our world.   He continues to be very loving towards others.  Just wanted to show some updated pictures of him and how he is growing so fast!  Tristan is currently not on antibiotics but remains on probiotics, Vitamin D and other herbal supplements.  His continued progress amazes those who know him best. 

 Another big development in our lives is that Tristan has been accepted to receive an autism trained service dog from Retrieving Freedom Inc.  We found out that he should receive a service dog within the next six months!!!  We are so excited for him.  If you want more information on how these dogs will help Tristan, we have set up a blog site "A Dog For Tristan" at .
This is a picture of Tristan with service dog, "Tu", at a fundraiser set up by my inlaws, Mark and Denise Kuhn, this summer.  It is amazing how these dogs have such a calming affect on him.
Tristan and I are doing much better these days.  Although in the past I have taken breaks from treatment, I am currently on continued antibiotic treatment along with herbal and other natural supplements.  I continue to exercise and eat a healthy diet daily (organic as much as possible).  Physically I am feeling 95% better than when I starting treatment almost 3 years ago.   We are taking things one day at a time.   We feel so blessed to have found the Lyme Disease when we did.  It has changed our lives and our son's for the better!
