Can someone please chat w/ me about DS health issue? rop
My name is jamie and I am new here. I am really worried about my DS age 9. For a couple of years he has been complaining about non-specific stomach pain. We finally got an appt with a ped. Gastr specialist next week. he had blood work done and the only problem was and elevated sed. rate. i have looked on line only to find I have more questions than answers. I am waiting for a call from our Ped. and hope to get some advice for our sit. and to calm my nerves. has anyone had this problem and do yo u have any advice for me. I want him to feel better. He has progressively gotten worse over the last several months. now he can't seem to make it through the school day. i don't want him to miss anything but i don't know how "sick" he is either. I am soo confused as to how to handle this situation . what should i tell him about school? Should I let him come home when he calls me? i don't want to find out later he is seriously ill and i refused to let him come home. or the converse of that. KWIM? I need advice...please let me know if you have dealt with a similar situation or have any advice.
