Good morning everyone! I hope you're all doing lovely today!! God is amazing and He loves you! 1 John 3:1-"See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him." (When you grow closer to the Lord you no longer fit in or are accepted in this world which is fine with me!) So...my oldest daughter Jazzalynn has been having some health issues this week. None seemed serious enough to worry until last night when she passed out (fainted) in my husband's arms! That caused alarm so we took her to the ER. They did an IV and blood work. It came back within an hour, she has anemia (very low iron). It explains all of the symptoms she's been having. Extreme fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, dizzy, fainting, and pale skin. So, she needs to eat more iron enriched foods and take iron pills. We are exhausted since we got home after 2:30 in the morning and I was back up at 7am with the boys. Nap might be in my future today, lol. I promise I will respond to my other discussion, just been a crazy time and I wanted to update about this since I know some of y'all already love Jazzalynn! Please keep her in your prayers and let me know if you need any prayers of your own!! =) Image by For God's Glory Photography of Jazzalynn

How frightening for you all. Give her a hug for me, and one for yourself. I hope that she can take the iron pills, they can be hard on your body. I have had to take them not that long ago, and I didn't like what it did to me. They always upset my stomach, so if she complains about that, she's feeling the side effects.

Sorry I was half asleep, and then asleep, when you messaged about it last night . I hate that you had to take her to the ER, but am so glad you guys have answers now. And hope she feels much better soon. And that none of the other kids have it in their future. Big hugs to everyone.

Many cereals, especially hot cereals, are iron enriched. When hubby would be low and try to give blood at a Red Cross drive they told him to eat raisins. Dried fruits in general are helpful. You also absorb more iron from your meals if you also have vitamin C with it, so for instance eggs and a glass of juice at breakfast.
