4 moths ago we brought Maddie and her sister to the doctor for their routine physical for school. And sure enough Maddie's TB skin test came back positive. They sent us in for a chest Xray which thank all that is holy came back negative, but they made us do a second skin test to air on the side of caution. And wouldn't ya know it that skin test came back positive too. So reluctantly we medicated her with INH. After a few months of being on the medication we noticed our bubbly super active baby wasn't quite herself, (Which directly fell into the same week I started a new job) we tried our best thinking she was just having a hard time that mommy was working. I took her into her doctor to have a blood and urine panel done thinking that she was having a reaction to the INH. A week later she was VERY sick when I called the doctor for test results they ordered me to get her there immidiately! THEN she was diagnosed with T1. They rushed us to children's hospital where our world fell apart around us. After 4 days in the hospital we came home. We've been home for one week and one day. THEN yesterday our diabetic educater called me to inform me that they are reffering us to a GI doctor because Madison tested positive for celiacs! Okay, here's my melt down..... SERIOUSLY?!?! She has never shown any signs or symptoms of celiacs but they said she will have to be retested after the beggining of the year. And all I can keep telling everyone who calls me is "I don't understand, my kids have never been sick! Ever! She never even had ear infections when she was a baby! I think she's had the stomach flu twice her whole life!" I am learning more and more everyday that I can NOT control the path that has been chosen for my children! BUT come on now! Can't I have some room to breath in between hurdles I have to jump and mountains I have to climb?! I am so very tired and with Maddie hitting lows at night I am not sleeping. And I say every day that I will take a 30 mins for myself and myself alone. Leave my husband in charge of the children, pour myself a glass of wine and take a hot bath and cry and try to breath but when it comes down to it I can't ask him to do that because he's doesn't seem interested in much these days and hardly speaks and I know if I ask and don't get the reaction or answer I'm looking for I will get "Sassy pants" (As Maddie puts it) And there will be a fight. And I don't want to fight with my husband nor do I have the strength to deal with a fight.....YIKES! Well, we are off to the doctor to see what's going on with Maddie's liver enzyms. they said they are still elevated from the INH. So far we are up to a whole team of doctors for D, our regular doctor trying to figure out what's going on with her liver, AND now a GI doctor to figure out if she has celiacs! Woah! That was a mouth full!
