I found this site by accident looking for information on Post TB
I am a AN3 Nurse
, have been nursing for 17yrs & now I'm finally looking to study & upgrade to EEN something I proberly should have done years ago.
I am a single mum & have a Handsome
12 yr old son with Autisim with many other complications as he gets older it seems to all make more sense now.
Perhaps you can help me understand more..but I can't seem to put my finger on it....cause I know he has other medical issues but just not sure what...& since it took 11 yrs for them to diagnose ASD and being treated like a nurotic mother who knows nothing :smackingf ...what would I know hey?
So far he has ASD, Short sightedness, Advanced bone age 4.5yrs, Premature Adolescence (started at 8yrs), Boarderline Interlectually Delayed (IQ 72-75) & recently he spent a week in Hospital which baffled all the Peadiatric Registras & Specialists...first they said he had allergy then it was Glandular Fever & now they reckon he has Lupus & needs to be tested while he was in Hospital he was on a IV drip, had high temps, very unusual rash very similar to menigcoccl disease but not purple red & white, & very high Blood Presure around 186/110 etc to 170/89 so it was scary they has him on high doses of predsilone & mixture of other meds. he is home & back to normal now :icon_hug: . He has appointment end of march for a echocardiogram because he has a systolic mumor.
So if you got any sugestions I'd be happy to hear them.
Now that I have found this place I hope to check in occasionally.
Cya's all around!
