  • Is your child a she or a he?? You say both here. This makes little sense, I can't figure out your question. Punctuation is your friend!!

  • I do not but I did want to tell you how sorry I am. It is so very hard to hear that one of our children is sick or hurting.

  • I'm truly sorry for you and yourlittle one. It's so brutally hard to see them sick. Just listen to the doc and do all of the therapy. The diseases *can* be put under control. My nephew was diagnosed with arthritis in his knees when he was four years old. There was a lot of medicine and therapy, but he has been in remission almost four years now. Hang in there, Mom!
