Since last Saturday things have gotten better, then worse. Julian started a different antibiotic Sunday and seemed to be doing okay with it. Friday he had 2 mushy diapers then threw up his dinner, meds and bottle....woke up this morning with diarrhea again and a dry, barky cough. I don't know what is going on with my little guy, but I can only hope it gets better with the warmer weather. We have his allergy testing next Saturday.

Last Thursday I took Manny to Westchester to see an endocrinologist after waiting 4 months for the appointment. He had a lot of blood work done (this was torture to Manny and me and mom who thankfully came with me. He has horrible veins, like his momma (they had to take it out of my hand every time I needed blood during both pregnancies) and screamed bloody murder. It took 4 of us to hold him down and get the blood drawn, but we got it. I called this Thursday to get the results, only to find out he never ordered a glucose or insulin test.....MY MAIN concern and why we went to the doctors. Now I have to go and get blood drawn again....and we need to see a genetic doctor, a pulmonologist and a nutritionist....just a few to add to the million doctors I already take the three of them to!! To top it all of he has fluid in his ears again....third time since tubes came out and will most likely need a new set=more surgery.

Please keep my boys and our family in your thoughts as we go through all of this and await answers.
