Help-my 8 Year Old Is Very Picky About Her Food.

I have an 8 year old that is very picky about food. She either wants something different from what i've made and if not, she won't eat. I can't get her to eat veggies or healthy food. It all started one day that we were at my in laws house, and she almost vomited, ever since then, she is always saying that if she tries something new she's going to throw up.

Private Schools for ADHD & School Screenings for Autistic Spectrum Kids

Wow, where do I start with this question. First a little background. I have a 7 year old girl who was diagnosed with ADHD in December. She is now on meds that has helped a lot but I think still needs some tweaking. She is now able to at least sit at her desk in public school for a short period of time and know that she has a task in front of her to do. Her teacher says that she is doing better but still needs a lot of reminders to complete a task (before she wouldn't even start a task). The school is wanting our authorization to have her...

Dehydrated 9 Year Old Son...

My son was not feeling well yesterday, headache, eyes hurt, just feeling weak all over and felt like he was going to vomit but never did. He took a shower and went to bed. Woke up this morning feeling the same way so I made him a doc appt. My husband took him in this afternoon and was told that he was simply dehydrated the same as he was in June when we brought him in for roughly the same symptoms. He had a large glass of water with his dinner last night and a decent glass of milk with breakfast this morning so I am really not understanding...

Hmm What Do You Think? Teething or Ear Infection?

I am calling the nurse today, but I wanted to know how things have been in your house. My son told me Friday night that there is something pointy in his mouth.. translation 6 year molars. Confirmed by the dentist. Saturday he got a fever, I did not think much of it, but the left ear has been consistantly higher than the right when taking his temp, this also hapens to be the side that the "pointy thing" was on. So my question is this.. do you think the fever is just a product of teething (heat from the tooth breaking through), or do...

5 Days with High Fever

My 7 year old daughter has had high fever (102-104) since monday and wiht tylenol/motrin it will go down to around 100. She is on a z-pack with today being her last dose. On top of the fever she has whooping cough and has had ongoing break out of hives. We went to a local ER and her chest x-ray was clear and urine was clean. No one checked her blood pressure or did any type of blood work. They diagnosed her with bronchitis and sent us home with an inhaler--which has not helped anything. Another boy in her class has hives with a low grade...

Stomach Virus Question

My 6 year old came down with the stomach virus late Monday night. She felt terrible all day Tuesday and was feeling better by Wednesday. Thursday night I came down with the virus. I felt awful all day yesterday, but I felt better today. I had my daughter spend the night away from home last night to try to avoid the germs as much as possible. I have cleaned and Lysoled everything that would stand still. Tonight before she went to bed she mentioned that her tummy hurt. I know that could be several things - remnants of the virus, the fact that...

A Cough and a Vomit.....

Almost three weeks ago my 10 1/2 month old son came down with a little stomach bug. A few days after that he caught a pretty bad cold. During the cold when he would cough really hard it would make him vomit. Fast forward to present time, cold is all but gone, and aside from two days in the last 19 he is still vomiting about once a day (was 3-4 times a day at height of cold) after a he coughs. Took him to his dr. two weeks ago for his 10 month check-up and she told us that we just need to let the cold run it's course and things should...
