Doctor Day

Today was doctor day for us.  First up was Bailey.  A new, female doctor that Bailey seemed to respond really well to.  Bailey admitted he is struggling at school in regards to friendships.  He said that he has a hard time not just saying the first thing that pops into his head even if he knows it will hurt someone else.  The doctor suggested a Concerta (his current med) and Strattera combo.  We started the first dose of Strattera tonight, but it will probably take up to a month before we notice any real improvement.

Then, it was my turn.  On May 2, I had an abdominal mass removed and I went to get the staples taken out today.  The tests on the mass still aren't back yet so it is back to the doctor on the 17th for me. 

Finally it was Sophie's turn to get a refill on her allergy meds.  I am hoping that that will be it for a while on the doctor front.

I’m sorry to hear Bailey is struggling with friendships at school, that must be hard for him and for you too as his mama. : ( He’s such an amazing boy. I just hope you get the medicine combo that’s right for Bailey. And if it helps at all, he’s always got 2 friends over here in Branden and Noah though. : )

As for you, I’m so worried. I didn’t know. : ( Are you okay? email me or call my cell, if you feel like talking/stress release from just anything, okay. Please know that it’s not just words from me here.....and that I am really really here for you, please seriously know that I really am. I hope the test results come back and all will be fine. Oh the waiting must be hard also. I just pray the results come back clean and everything will be fine. You are a good person with a good heart. And 2 kids who love you to pieces. I just.....I just want everything to be okay.

I hope that you are OK, recovering quickly from the surgery, and that the results are good. The wait must be killing you. Also hope that Bailey med's work well for him, and Sophie's allegies meds too. Thinking of you! Nancy Tsurumaki
