Five years ago my gf and I adopted a beautiful baby! We adopted him from a local girl who wanted money for an abortion! We refused but agreed to take the baby and have never regretted it. She was using meth and taking a lot of lortab when she was pregnant but the baby seemed healthy at first. When he was six weeks old he got a really high fever of 104. We took him to the doctor and after doing this off and on for about three months they diagnosed him with cyclic neutropenia, but assured us it was not due to the drug abuse. He was a happy baby for the few days he was well, but every 21 days he got sick for two years, then he started to slow down and not get sick as often. Now it is only once every two to three months. He also has iron deficiency anemia which we treat with vitamins. The problem is we have seen a lot of doctors and none of them think he has any symptoms from the prenatal drug use, but every time he gets sick when they give him medicine he turns into a different child. He is hyper, uncontrollably angry, has fits, hits and yells, and laughs when he is being disciplined. Even if he gets a spanking or has his toys taken away all he can do is laugh. This stays for weeks after the medication, then he gets back to normal until it is time to get sick again. Well recently he got an ear infrction and he didnt run the usual alarming fever so we didnt know he was sick until he was in so much pain all he could do was scream. Our doctor immediately gave him a small dose of toradol for the pain and he went off the charts after that. This week he was hitting kids at school, screaming at teachers, and pushing kids off the risers during a school program. He is a good student and the top reader in his kindergarten class. He has been in trouble before but nothing like this. I made a behavior chart for him before school started so that he could see his own progress and he usually does so good, I just want him to be happy. We have talked to many doctors and none of them feel like this is from the drug abuse but I still disagree, they have never truly tested him and looked at the drug history from the pregnancy. Howc can I help him and is it just my imagination telling me that the behaviors get worse when he takes medications? WE adopted him to give him a better life and now I feel like we arent getting him the right help!
