It is only a few hours since I posted this thread and I am overwhelmed by the number of responses.
Tears welled up at the thought of so many strangers taking time from their busy lives to send positive responses our way.
Thank you all so much. I have been through so much lately between job and financial issues.
Poor Constantine's illness has pushed me to the very limit. Watching him endure multiple blood draws and heel sticks has illicited irrational urges
to strike out at the very doctors and nurses trying to help him.
My wife of 17 years and have endured many tribulations over the years but our love has triumphed. Yesterday however was the first time I ever really
lost it over something insignificant and unrelated.
In desperation I turned to ATS. In these uncertain times I have found solace, if not distraction in the posts.
My entreaties for non-traditional healing were directed not so much for "miracle cures" such as compounds or machines but spiritual cures.
I was brought up in a very traditional Christian environment and received degrees in chemistry and biology.
ATS has opened my heart and mind up to the power of collective intent be it called prayer, pranic healing or the law of attraction.
ATS has also spurred my interest into the mysticism of the early Christian church.
I have come to believe that we human beings posess healing powers alluded to by Christ and made manifest by his apostles.
What I have learned is belief in the healing is as critical to the success as prayer or intent alone.
My son's illness is exceedingly rare. Autoimmune hepatitus prevalance is only 1-1.2 per million with most being age 10 or older and 75% being female.
He may very well be the youngest person to have this problem on our planet. Even with the best western medical treatment, his chances of long term
remission are less than 30%. Given his age, there are no statistics to compare.
It is for that fact that I shall ascribe his healing a miracle and give honor to a higher power who I choose to call God.
It will be through the collective efforts of ATS that I shall also ascribe credit.
Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that there is something special about Constantine. Though it is natural for all parents to see
something extrodinary in their own children, it is my experience as the father of 5 children, that Constantine illicits responses from an exceptional
number of children and adults of all races.
Just last month, a family visiting from Pakistan were infatuated with him and asked respectively, though pationately if they could have their picture
taken with him.
Thank you all again. You can't imagine how much better I feel knowing how many selfless people exist within our midst. God bless everyone.
