  1. Oops...I forgot IGE. Anyone know how to change a poll??
  2. Hello Everyone, Just curious to see how many of our children have immune issues. Sorry if this has been done before! Thanks! Ginger
  3. Ugh!!! My son did not like that shot!!!! Not sure we are going to be able to do this every month. He is a pro at giving blood, but this shot thing...not so much. Poor little guy!
  4. Hello Colleen, My son seems to have elevated MPV, High Neutrophils and low Lyphoctes. C reactive Protein is always high. However the WBC is usually in the normal range. Sorry I don't know if this helps or not.. Ginger
  5. Good Morning! My son has a doctors appointment this morning, and I have a question. He has been on Antibiotics now since Feb. 15th for strep. The latest being Keflex, this one seems to help the most. Anyway the doctor wants to give him a shot of Amox. this morning. He gives this to his Reaumatic Fever patients. It is suppose to protect him for 28 days?? Has anyone had this? What are your thoughts? Thanks so much! Ginger
  6. Just thought I would post my son has had numerous confirmed strep infections, and with negative ASO tests. We have tested 3 times during an infection, at 3-4 weeks after and the other one I really couldn't pin point, because all of the infections seem to run together. They just never seem to rise. Ginger
  7. Wow. That is great that you have so much proof of this. I can always tell when my son has strep, by the fact that he starts to spell his name backwards...he is only 3 so that is really the only thing he writes, but his coloring and pictures are awful as well.
  8. Is he trying to be funny? Silliness is a common PANDAS behavior. I watch kids at my gym's daycare twice a week and there is a 3 year old that also blurts out random words that he thinks are funny. It's totally him trying to funny because to him and several of the other younger kids, IT IS funny. Thanks for the laugh ladies! As I sit here and read my post I think this really sounds so insignificant, why can't I stop analyzing everything and just enjoy my sweet boy!? I guess when you factor in everything else it just gets so overwhelming, and you what more then anything to have a healthy happy child. He is probably just tying to be funny, and his mommy is just not getting it. I need to work on enjoying him more. Maybe I should just blurt out the word eyeballs every now and then, or I like chicken...and see how he responds..lol Thanks again!
  9. Hello everyone, Just curious if anyone else has experienced this? My son is 3 1/2 and every time he gets strep he starts to make up words. Not really baby talk but words that just don't mean anything and lately we will be talking and he will just blurt out crazy words like eyeballs. It is very frustrating, so I am curious if he is just being 3 or if this could be a tic??? It usually gets better when he is on antibiotics, but this time not so much. Thank so much! Ginger
  10. Just wanted to say good luck tomorrow! Wish I had info on IVIG, but we haven't went down that road yet. Please keep us posted.
  11. Thanks for the info Ladies! My son has been on Augmentin, Keflex, tried Biaxin but he won't take it, zithro. Oh gosh, So many I really don't know where to begin! The doctor decided to go with Bactrim based on information he received from the Mayo Clinic. I think, becasue this is the only antibiotic we haven't tried??? My son's IgG levels are really low, in all sub classes but more so in 3. Please see below. I think many of you are experiencing the same thing. Total IgG 355 Ref Range 295-1156 IGG-1 268 range 158-721 IGG-2 70 range 39-176 IGG-3 19.6 range 17.0-84.7 IGG-4 3.3 range 0.4-49.1 IGG E 5 range 0-230 IGG A 58 range 16-94 IGG M 58 range 18-126 C-REACTIVE Protein 0.7 Range 0-0.5 He is not a strep carrier, based on Dr. T's observation. His ASO Titer is always negative. He is a responder to Vaccines, however I don't know which one's the doc tested for. Cole has had Strep more times then I can count. Last year we went through the exact same thing from October-April every month. We have treated everyone in the house including the dog. I change his toothbrush evert week. He has been on antibiotics since Feb. 2 nd this time. I am so tired of sterilizing everything, expecially because obviously it isn't working. I am also OCD when it comes to cleaning. Ugh, really does a number on me everytime..My poor husband and child! lol Thanks for listening everyone!!! Hope you have a wonderful Easter. Ginger
  12. This article gives me hope! Not sure how to post a link, but I am going to try. Vickie thanks for posting the above article, of course I was then curious and found some more info that explains how the doctor found this connection. Good stuff http://journals.lww.com/neurotodayonline/p...p;type=fulltext
  13. OMGoodness...I have never thought of this. We just put 3 Spiderman tattoos on this morning. Sould we worry about dying easter eggs as well?
