We finally arrived home and we’re all in one piece. Some of us are more whiney than others but all in one piece.
This was a good appointment and one that put our minds at ease a bit.
The pediatrician says that Elliott’s height and weight are just fine and not to worry about it.
In fact, he’s grown about half an inch since September and only lost 1 lb. That’s really good for a kid on this particular ADHD medication.
He said that he’s not sure why the Nutritionist was so worried about his height and weight but as far as he’s concerned, Elliott’s fine. That’s something really good to hear because we have enough to worry about.
Now we have to make a decision about the anti-depression medication. I can’t remember the name of it off hand but it’s not commonly used on kids. We have to decide whether or not the potential benefits are worth the potential risks. Trust me when I say that it’s much easier said than done.
We need to do something, there’s no question about that. What that something is? Well, that’s yet to be determined.
