Hi again, Mom Advocate, You are getting bombarded with information!! I am sure you are both thrilled and overwhelmed! One piece of advice that has been helpful to me is...this disease manifests in MANY different ways. Yes, lots of things are related, but the most important thing you and your son need to do is make him feel better. Information is power, but much of it is beyond your control. I took a break from all this reading after a while because I just had too much to process. Take your time to absorb it all--don't feel like you have to do it all overnight. A year later, things look much better for Alex than they seemed a year ago. I do thank everyone here though, because the support is one of the most helpful things of all. I hope I don't sound ungrateful or unsupportive...I just remember those early days being overwhelming. Take your time!
