Not at all! I read every response! We are NOT having surgery she was just sick and tired and her neuro made it SOUND like a quick fix to her. I know it takes a toll on her little body, and has to frustrate her not to be able to get her learners permit like the rest of the kids, to have to take so much medication every day, to me going in her room countless times during the nite to check on her. I'm just reaching out hoping to stumble onto something, anything to give her positive outlook. I want her to be optimistic about her future! I do not want any sort of surgery preformed on her unless there is no other option. Diabetes does run in my family so I've always be strict about sugary sweets, a lot more lenient towards chips though. We grow a garden each year as to save $ and provide organicly grown foods with no chemicals. We eat what we can and I freeze the rest for thruout the winter. That's not to say she never has any of the things you've mentioned but I do try to monitor the things she eats and drinks and keep it as healthy and fresh as possible. We all really do appreciate any feedback we get and it's only to benefit her. We want her to see all options, not just what her neuro said in our visit last week. Thank you Jake for your honest feedback, i take all information right back to her! Showing her what others have to say/think that way she does see that she does have a choice, voice, and is being heard. Thank you!
