I thought it was about time that we recognized a huge praise on this blog. Many of you already know that hubby was scheduled for another surgery but he has since cancelled it with no intentions of rescheduling any time soon.
Hubby's trachea continually closes up about every 8 months and he needs to go for surgery to reopen it so he can breath once again. This has been going on for over 6 years. Through some research I did, I wanted hubby to start detoxing his body through a fresh juice diet. It seemed to be helping as the 8 month mark came and went without surgery! As the one year mark approached since his last surgery (February) he could feel that he was tightening up a bit, so we scheduled a checkup with the doctor. During that visit, the doctor mentioned about gluten sensitivity and we decided to give a gluten-free (and gmo-free) diet a chance to see if that would help. We also scheduled a surgery date for April. Well, after being on a strictly fresh fruit/vegetable, nuts and seeds diet (with a little meat).....April came and went and we cancelled surgery!!! A bonus was hubby is down 30 lbs as well :) His inflammation has decreased and he can breath better than he did back in February!
We are sooooo very thankful for this answer to prayer! I don't know if hubby is completely healed of this yet or not, but to know that the steps we are taking right now has prolonged his surgery date is so wonderful! I thank God for His goodness to us and pray that this may be the end of his battle with subglottic stenosis for good!!
