I Hate It

  • I hate it that my kid has to have weight checks every 3 months.
  • I hate it that the last 3 weight checks have been bad news.
  • I hate it that my gastro doctor had to point out that The Boy has not gained an ounce in over 9 months and gave us a one month "hail Mary" to have him gain a little something before it was time to go bad on meds.
  • I hate it that at said one month "hail Mary" he hadn't gained anything. Not an ounce.
  • I hate it that it's time to put him back on medication.
  • I hate watching him take the medication and then suffer the side effects of taking it (extreme tiredness and lethargy).
  • I hate it that, although it makes him tired, it does seem to work a little.
  • I have having to decide between my kid eating enough to sustain his little life, and my kid being mentally alert enough to grow and thrive.
  • I hate that, after 5 years...I am still talking about this.

I can't even imagine how hard that must be on you and the boy. (((hugs))). Just remember you're a fantastic mom and he is a super fantastic kid. Just keep doing what you must and you'll both get through this.

I'm sorry.

You are always there for your son and have always given him what he needs. This sounds difficult (especially since it's been going on so long) but you will both get through it. Together.
