Blood test results came back. we just got home from the doc.

Posted by   + Show Post

His thyroid was high, i expected that. i told her i stoped taking my thyroid meds and she said good.

his calcium was high, shes worried that this paired with his chin being slightly pushed back might indicate something genetic and wants me to test for it after we move because testing can take a month to come back.

he gained two pounds in the past two weeks she said thats good.

iron was low, but she said it wasnt low enough to cause concern.

celiac test was negative but i know that is famous for being inaccurate and i still strongly believe he has it.


his cell count was high, but he had just been sick. 

we are repeating the test in a week.

im so worried that he might have permanent damage. i wish i just gave him formula sooner. im so worried i want to vomit and i cant stop crying. :( i feel like a terrible mother. she said it was ok to continue to breastfeed as long as i supplement with the sns, wants me to keep a diary of his feeds.

im not sure what all this means exactly. she said developmentally hes doing well, but hes not exactly sitting unassisted yet but she said that is ok that he still has some time to meet that milestone because its from 6-9 months, and that his bones were probably having trouble forming but he is bouncing back now. she thinks we fixed everything just in time. she says its not likely he has any permanent damage because of how  quickly he bounced back and how he is developmentally but we wont know for sure until later, but she doesnt think so.
