Things have been crazy around here and unfortunatly it hasn't been for the better. About 6 weeks ago he started having this terrible stomach pain. They're trying to tell me it's constipation, but we've done a big clean out and added Miralax and the pain is the same. They've changed his reflux meds and added Erythromycin, but he's still missing days of school and when he does go spends most of the time at the nurses office. The nurse thinks he's faking and the teacher says, how can he be faking when he's sobbing in pain? We're going tomorrow for an EMG for this leg thing. They've finally decided that since he isn't responding to meds for the restless leg thing maybe it isn't that. Then they tell me my $8200 MRI is worthless because they didn't use contrast(I tried to tell them that before the MRI) ao we might have to repeat that depending on what the EMG shows tomorrow. He's going to be put to sleep so we have to be there are 6:45 and don't see the doc for results until 4:30. We live an hour away so it's going to be a long day. On a good note, even with all the days missed he's improved dramatically in school. He went from 1st quarter not knowing if he would pass to not even needing summer school. I'll post tomorrow when we get back to let you know the results of the EMG.
