  1. So glad you took a wait-and-see attitude. I have worked with children most of my adult life and have seen too many parents rush to give their children the "miracle meds" that are going to solve all their problems. Only to discover that those meds create problems of their own.

  2. My heart goes out to you - - the only thing I can say is keep on doing your own research. The internet gives us a huge amount of resources that were not available just a few years ago, and it's amazing what we can find out that doctors don't know. Plus, only a mom or caregiver can become the world's expert in that one child. Trust your judgment! P.S., when I hear my boss's voice getting farther and farther away and the world starts spinning . . . I'm pretty sure it's an absence seizure induced by his presence . . .
