Kulia's birthday this year was definitely a fun week of celebrating. It all started with her trying to convince herself that she was turning 5. On Tuesday, the day before, she asked me at least 5 times, "Am I really going to be 5 tomorrow, Mommy?" "When I wake up tomorrow will I be 5?" I didn't realize what a big deal 5 was. The morning of her birthday at 6:30 in the morning I hear her calling me from the stairs. When I went to ask her what was wrong she asked, "Am I 5 now, Mommy?" I replied, "Absolutely" and then she started jumping up and down. After, she raced to the door jam to measure if she had grown. She measure with her hand above her head and said, "I am 5 now Mommy, see!" She was ecstatic! Then we started the morning with singing to her and letting her open her gifts. Dad had to go to work, but he took a half day and we headed to Disneyland around 1:00. A large group, 35, friends from Corona Ranch were there. We met up with them and rode a few rides, but it was Kulia's day, so we went our own way and rode the rides of her choice. Our dear friends, the Tejada's, hung out with us at Disneyland and we all had a great time. After watching the parade, we decided to leave and have dinner at Red Robin. The Tejada's joined us and it was so fun!

After the party we came home and relaxed. Kunane worked with Kalena in the back practicing softball, which she absolutely loves. After, we all played cards for a while and had a blast. We are off track now, so I will definitely be posting more this month. I love being off track and spending time at home with the girls. This will be the last time I am off in March though. Our school is going single track next year. The nice things about single track is we will all be on the same schedule with Kunane, so even more family time. Woo, hoo!!

We took all kinds of pictures of the kids climbing the trees. In this picture Kulia is leaning on Hailee, Kalena is next to Kulia and then Kilee. They loved posing for the pictures. After lunch we loaded our bikes back in the truck and went to the zoo at the park. The kids loved seeing the animals and like petting the goats in the petting zoo portion. We had a fabulous day with the Long girls. Thanks for a great day girls. We definitely need to do it again!

I asked Dr. Morhdar how this could be possible and he told me the supplement (Transfer Factor C) allows her body to fight off infections before it incubate and become worse. Apparently, this supplement assist her immune system in keeping her white blood cells within a healthy range. When she is exposed or has a small bug, her body actually fights it rather than lets it incubate and it never has the opportunity to turn into an infection. He actually recommended I have Kalena take it throughout the flu and cold season so she doesn't get a bug either. The girls don't mind taking it which is great too!
As I left his office, I called my mom and told her that if I wasn't working full time I would definitely become a lobbyist in Washington for natural medicine. I know it sounds a little extreme, but I have seen first hand how it has changed Kulia's life. She is so much healthier and happier and doing so much better than she was on pharmaceutical drugs. I have spent less money out of pocket on the supplements and doctor visits than I did when she was seeing her specialist. In addition, the insurance company would have spent less for the ND rather than an MD. I do know though our health care is driven by the pharmaceutical companies and natural medicine will never be accepted because it would put to many of them out of business. I also know that it has worked for Kulia and we are going to continue to see Dr. Mohrdar N.D. until he proves that his treatment is not effective. He truly has been our family miracle and would recommend him to anyone!
