Dealing with medical stuff seems to come in waves in our house. When Paige was little we were at a different specialist every week. At one time she had 9 different "ologists" and we were hit with scary news constantly.
But, since she has gotten older, the shit hits the fan in waves. Unfortunately, when it does... it splatters. I have my shield up but I'm worried.
We are in a holding pattern right now. Paige had her bone age x ray done a few weeks ago. She was 9 years 3 months at the time and the scan showed she was delayed up to 2 years. We are going to see the pediatric endocrinologist in 2 weeks.
Yesterday she had her bone density test. Not only is she at risk for osteopenia of prematurity, there is some new information out that being on some SSRI's can cause rapid bone loss. Of course she is on one of the SSRI's on the list. I watched the monitor, as the scan was in progress, wishing I was a doctor so I could have an immediate answer.
Now we wait.
I hate the wait.
