We have been waiting all day and still no word from the doctor. I've got to tell you, this is starting to get old real quick. Cody had his scans last Wednesday and they were received by the doctor up in NY yesterday morning. I've got to say that Diane and I both are not real happy with the way things are going right now. Just waiting is killer..
On another note, Diane had to take Justin to the doctor today. He has been complaining the past few weeks that his stomach hurts in the evening after dinner. At first we thought he had a stomach virus or something. He had no fever and didn't throw up so we both began to get concerned that it may be something worse. You know, Cody was complaining of stomach pains also. And before you dismiss this so quickly you have to put yourself in our shoes. To say we are a little gun shy would be a major understatement. So Diane took him to the doctor and the doctor sent her to the hospital for x-rays and blood work. We were both very happy to get a call from the doctor this evening saying that everything came back OK. His x-rays, platelets, white blood cells and enzymes are good. He told us to have him eat more fiber and drink more water. Although Justin says he has a BM everyday the doctor says some kids say they do but may not. Stress may also have something to do with it. You really don't know what is going on in you child's mind all the time. The doctor says we need to also monitor him closely. Never a boring moment.
