  • I am sorry i can't relate to you exactly and i hope i don't frustrate you even more, but i have been through some medical issues with my son who was born with Down Syndrome. I also have future surgeries to deal with. He has a large hole in his heart which will need surgery to correct. I will pray for you and your family if that is okay. My son had to get a couple of MRI's to rule out a tumor. Thank GOD it came back negative both times. All i am saying is that i know what it is like to have to spend a great deal of time in hospitals and at drs. appts. I hope you get the post you are looking for for comfort. I was going to answer this question Annon., but i changed my mind. I still hope i did not state anything to make you feel worse. Forgive me if i did.

  • Hi. My mother has Scleroderma. She belongs to several groups, some who have children with Scleroderma. Here is a list you can browse through and choose a group that is best for you. As far as I know there are none on this site. Wish you the best.

  • Hi my son has an unknown immune disorder that we think is genetic so yes I completely understand what you're going through. I travel south 100 miles routinely for tests and other hospital visits. We are in the process of figuring out exactly what he has and the whole thing is ridiculous.
