  • aww, sorry to hear that. just remember if you feel there is something going on and the dr. is not doing their job to your satisfaction, go to a different dr. it's always good to get a second opinion when there are problems. but sorry to hear about your son's diagnosis.

  • Sorry that you are going through this. At some point every parent has to learn to not trust their docs 100% & take charge for themselves. I am not saying anyone is a bad parent its just a lesson to be learned. Lucky for us or not so lucky I guess my dd went into the hosp at 8days old. Boy did we learn a lot while in there which was for 14 days. I dont think I would have learned to take charge & be fearless towards docs if not for this incident. We continued to have various problems through out the next couple of years & I had no issues with taking charge of my own childs health & issues & telling the docs to check again & going to new/other ones if needed to get what I needed done. Sorry again you are going through this. But a lesson has been learned here in all of this one that everyone has to learn at some point =(
