These are questions I try to answer every day. Truly we live day to day at this point. If it is a good day we get lots of school work accomplished and errands or exercise. If it is a bad day only a little or none gets done. Very frustrating. Until we get this thing figured out this is our life. Don't get me wrong. I am grateful for homeschooling. If I was having to go through this and send her off to school each day it would be quite impossible. Homeschooling allows us the freedom to fit in school when we can, schedule doctor's appointments and testing for whenever we want, and just plain relax without needing to adhere to other people's schedules.
Last week was a really good week, of course school was out for Christmas and we didn't do any work. This week every other day she has woken up sick. It is 1:30 and we are just about to get started on some school work. We are not only dealing with actually feeling bad and unable to sit at the table to do work but once she does feel good to sit at the table there is a constant review and catch up process going on. Every time a big project gets started or paper to be written you lose the flow of your thought processes and basically have to start the process over.
Currently we are in a waiting pattern. All her blood work has come back normal, the ultrasound for her gall bladder is normal as well. Now we have an appointment scheduled with a pediatric GI doctor on the 17th of this month. We could be dealing with anything. Food allergies, GERD, gall bladder issues, cyclic vomiting syndrome, anxiety induced and so on. Really we have no idea at this point what is going on with her. I ask you all to keep her in your prayers and hope that we find a solution soon.
