It has been a very long day. I am always in awe over the huge vastness and movement in a children’s hospital.
The activity level is insane.
We don’t have any real answers regarding Bug, but we do have a game plan.
The specialist thinks her main symptom (the one that put The Very Scary Something on the table) isn’t a symptom of something, but rather the cause of her other symptoms.
He wants her tested for The Very Scary Something, but he does not believe she has it. Only one child per year, in our state, passes the newborn screening and later tests positive for The Very Scary Something.
It doesn’t explain her bruising, but she has had blood work done and all is in order. It doesn’t explain her frequent low grade fevers, but she’s a kid. Kids get fevers.
We are hoping all her other symptoms will be alleviated by fixing the main symptom. We are giving the prescribed protocol three months. If the symptom(s) persist, we will tackle everything from a different angle.
That’s where we stand.
My mind is greatly eased. I’m not even a tiny bit nervous about The Very Scary Something testing. The chance she has it is so very, very slim. Our state has one of the best screenings available.
Therefore, we will treat the main symptom, it will go away and it is all good!
As you can see, Bug wasn’t worried about any of it! She was happy on our trip there and snoozed the entire way back!
