We had the first Neuro appt. Friday morning. The doctor and the hospital were reassuring. She was very comprehensive and when ds acted up infront of her, she told dh and I that we are in a lot of problem, but she will do all she can to help. She did a physical and motor exams and measured all of our heads. I have the biggest head in the family, lol. She said that a damaged brain doesn't grow, but I'm not sure about that. She gave us a prescription to take to the school for a formal pediatric neuro-psychologic evaluation. She knows a lot about the state law for special education; however, she is not too sure about the school system in my town since it is on the other side of the state. She has been doing this for a long time and will coordinate everything all his care. Once she receives the report for the neuro-psychologic evaluation, she may do an MRI if required and other medical tests including genetic testing, she said. I'm please to have found her, but I'm sad that at 7 years old my poor child has to be subjected to all this. He kept asking me why he wasn't in school and if he could go to school after the appt. Then he asked me if there is even a cure for his "problem" as he calls it. I never anticipated this when I was trying to get prenant or during pregnancy -- I'm the youngest in family. All my siblings have children and no one in my family or dh's family have ever had to deal with this, so sometimes I get numb and wonder if it has been a bad dream or if I ever did something bad to someone that I can't remember. Thanks for reading.
