shaking my head busy

I have little time to talk to anyone, and I apologize.

Here is a quick update. Jude went to his new pediatrician yesterday and she was phenomenal. Seems she lost a special needs baby at only 9 months so she was very sweet to Jude. She said she believes Jude's iron level may be upsetting his stomach, and per her blood tests she was right. So she nixed Jude's iron supplement, and also requested we get his vaccines. We were opposed to getting them due tot he controversy. She explained that she wouldn't do the controversial vaccines, but she highly recommends flu, and pertussis. She said Jude would not be able to survive Pertussis (whooping cough) and she is right. So he has an appointment on Friday for those shots. Jude then got to go see his GI specialist today, and he cut back Jude's food rate. He is over riding the nutritionist and cutting it back due to weight, and his retching. So Jude is having a very busy week.

Em and I got in a terrible fight last night, and I yelled very loudly at her. I feel just terrible! I hate I yelled at her.

I am so happy that you finally found a pediatrician that *gets* Jude and what you want for him!It sounds like things are finally falling into place.

I'm so happy you found a good pediatrician!!! I'm glad they found the issues quickly and that's reassuring on the vaccinations, too. Get some rest and don't feel bad, or beat yourself up too much. You are a phenomenal mother. You deserve the Mother of the decade award!! xoxox
