Alyssa my eldest is borderline autistic. She receives no treatment for this so who knows what the future holds.
Erika was born with a very bad cough *sounded like an old man who smoked a pipe most of his life* Anyway I have been fighting with doctors for years to get her properly tested as this cough has been consistent for the past 4 years.
Finally she got referred to Yorkhill Childrens Hospital & they are very angry that no medical professional has picked up the fact that yes her lungs are clear & her throat is clear but they should have referred her after hearing the cough for themselves.
Turns out the cartilage in her windpipe is softer than it should be causing her airways to close up.
The hospital xrayed her & will determine where to go from there.
That is so frustrating FanOfDorks! - that they were so slow in picking up on that - not to mention the stress this condition would have caused Alyssa over such a long period. Hopefully it is given the proper treatment now.

Totally. Alyssa has anger issues anyway mostly because of me & her daddy splitting up which doesnt help but also the fact he dumped us frmy socalled best mate & her kids. The girls went down to England for easter weekend & because her kids didnt want themin the house *my ex's house* the girls got sent to my ex'cparents so now I have a 9 year old upset that her daddy prefers these other kids. TBH I dont think she is wrong.
FanOfDorks, I am so sad to hear about this situation. Of course A is angry. Could you blame her? You, too! The children come first. I hope you are in touch with the best supports you can find so that they will have the best outcome in this situation. There's no point in trying to work through all of this on your own, Cumber. God bless! Thanks for sharing.
