I finally was able to get Dasha evaluated through Infant and Toddlers. After 3 previous cancellations, 1 on our part, 2 on theirs, we got it done. And she doesn't qualify. She is a little behind in certain things, but only by a month, whereas to qualify you have to be more than 4 months behind developmentally. So I guess this is almost a positive in my eyes, as we have been so insanely busy these past few weeks, I really don't think I could schedule another thing in right now.
Now my focus is moving towards Camden. Now if BM's gross you out do not read on.....fair warning. So Camden has had major bathroom issues since he was about 2, before potty training. He usually goes at least 3 days between BM's. It only got worse with potty training. After a while we got better, occasionally having to use a laxative to get him to go, but when we traveled to Russia he went 8 days without a BM. I was about ready to take him to a hospital in Russia when the deed finally happened. It got better when we got home, but now it is getting worse again. We went to the pediatrician this morning and we are going to clean him out, and do a regiment of laxatives and then slowly wean him off and see if that helps the problem, it will probably take about 3-4 months, if that doesn't improve the situation we will get referred to a G.I. specialist. I really hope it gets solved soon, it is painful to see you child cry in pain just to go to the bathroom.
The blessing of friends!
