Surgery Day is Coming
After a year long battle with my daughter's illness we finally have an answer! She has been complaining of abdominal pain for the last year and has hardly been eating. She has been nauseous every time she eats. She only weighs 41 lbs at nearly 7 years old. She used to be a really good eater.
We had had enough and sought out a pediatric surgeon. We know from previous experience, the only place to go here in WI is Childrens' Hospital where we found Dr. Densmore. Last week she had a Hida scan and another ultrasound. They both confirmed that her gall bladder is not working. The surgery is scheduled for next week Wednesday. I feel relieved. Someone is listening to us! It is so frustrating when you know something is wrong with your child and no one will do anything to help. She cried a bit when I told her but I told her how much better she will feel. Please keep my daughter in your prayers.
The moral of this story is don't be afraid to ask questions and when you don't get answers, seek a second opinion!
