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

Maybe all of the kids need supplemental iron. Sorry for the issues.

@snowy22315 Until they show signs of a problem there isn't one. I'm also anemic, the doctor said it's not surprising she is too since I am.

@LovingMyBabies Why put them through having symptoms though? At least children's vitamins with iron should be good.

@snowy22315 They take kids vitamins every morning, they all do. Unfortunately that wasn't enough for her. Because I don't force health problems on my kids if they don't have them or medicine for that matter either.

That must have been scary. I am anemic too and take iron pills. I hope she feels better soon once she starts taking them.

@shaggin It was scary! I'm also anemic so the doctors weren't surprised that she was as well. Thank you. =)

@LovingMyBabies do you and your daughter eat meat? I do not that is likely the reason.

@shaggin We LOVE meat but hate vegetables and I'm allergic to seafood so we never ever have that. We also can't afford steak and such often so that could be why as well.

@LovingMyBabies She has been through a lot. When she was five, she was kidnapped and taken to another state. The FBI rescued her.

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.

@juliaacv Thank you!! We are going to try diet changes first, then if that doesn't help we will go to the pills. I'm not a big medicine person-for me or my kids unless absolutely necessary.

@LovingMyBabies That's a smarter alternative, those pills are so hard on a person. Does she like spinache? That is loaded with iron and there are so many things you can do with it-quiche, dips, salads.

@Juliaacv She hates vegetables of any kind. But she does like other things high in iron like nuts and red meat.

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.

That was extreme anemia! I was anemic as a child and they made me take iron in liquid form. It was as nasty as it sounds. I was so thankful when they let me take the pill form! I think Jazzalynn is a beautiful name.
