Really Awesome Zoey News!

I'm copying this from an email I just sent, as I need to start someone's bedtime routine. But I wanted to update tonight before it slipped my mind... Smile

I got some tremendously good news today. Zoey's blood work came back negative for everything. She's the picture of health, and has in fact miraculously gone from 5th to 13th percentile for weight since January. There's no indication that she's anything but healthy. The day after we went to the doctor she came down with a cold and also had diarrhea for a couple days. The doctor's logical assumption is that the petechiae rash was a systemic reaction to the viral infection in her body. It's certainly plausible as this type of rash is often indicative of infections like leukemia or meningitis, as well as less serious infections. The rash is actually starting to go away just as her runny nose is drying up and her stool is getting back to normal. What a relief! Where the eye rolling episodes, irritability and sleeplessness are concerned, she does think that this round of testing just gives us one more reason to believe that the diagnosis of benign positional paroxysmal vertigo is accurate. We'll be seeing the only neuro-otologist in New England that the doctor could find that has actual experience treating this condition in children. It's so uncommon in kids her age that we had a hard time finding anyone with experience. So....good news all around. My heart is just filled to the brim with gratitude. Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers, I really appreciate it.

I am one HAPPY and relieved mama. Oh my goodness. This has been the longest week of my life!

Yahoo I'm sooooo happy for you! So sorry you had to go through that scare with thinking it was something horrifying. I hope the neuro-otologist visit goes well... When is that?

Not until July 28th. He's on sabbatical for a while. From what I gather he's worth seeing, so I'll wait patiently until he's back.
