More tests

We saw the pediatrician today. He is wanting to get to the bottom of this and has ordered more test for Taylor.

The good news is she had a change around just before supper. Actually asked to go play outside. What a difference. She wants to try going to school tomorrow for half a day. Woohoo we're so excited.

Fingers Crossed

It feels like we have been dealing with Taylor being sick forever, even if it has only been 6 weeks. We are wanting some answers as to what she has but know that we have good doctors working to figure it out. We've been to emerg 3 times and to our own doc. And finally the last doc we saw helped us out. The 2nd time we were at the er they found an amino acid tyrosine ins her urine. Because of this they referred us to the Inherited metabolic disorders clinic. They have been awesome. The nurse there suggested we head back to the er so Monday night we did and a variety of tests were taken. One of which was an ultrasound at children's yesterday. While there the metabolic nurse came down to see us and set Taylor up for another urine test seen as Calgary Lab services screwed up the last one. What a great nurse.

We're feeling good about things. The ultrasound, x-ray and ecg were normal. The doc still thinks she could have mono but we'll know more tomorrow when we see the paediatrician. And the metabolic results should be back next week but we don't expect there to be anything there.

And hopefully she'll be back at school soon. 5 weeks is a lot of school to miss.

The boys have been great to Taylor during this time. They too are worried and repeatedly tell me they don't like seeing T sick.

I'll post tomorrow once we have a better idea, after seeing the doc.
