On Monday I took lexi to the pulmonologist and her developmental pediatrician. The pulmonologist didn't say much about her not sleeping that we will wait to see what the sleep study shows on Monday. he did decide to start her on prednisone to see if the cough she constantly has might be asthma related. since she started on the med her breathing has gotten better especially at night. she also isn't coughing which is finally nice to be able to say. i will have to call the office tomorrow and tell them the med is working and they will prescribe her an inhaler to use. she is up to 36 lbs so that's a good thing. the developmental Dr was very nice this time. she said she doesn't want me to fight with lexi about potty training. she wants to give lexi a break and see what happens. she also has referred us to get her eyes checked, her hearing tested again and to see a neuropysch doctor in July or around then. i also talked to the Dr about getting lexi seen by the neurologist there because in that office you see the neurologist and not the nurse practitioner which with the neurologist she sees now lexi only sees the nurse practitioner. so i'm hoping they will get her into see that doctor soon. the doctor is also requesting to see a copy of her iep because she doesn't the school is going to be helping lexi enough next year and from her words shes very worried about her. which i am too. iv been saying that since day one but the school says if we place her in a special needs class then its going to be too restrictive. i guess we will cross that bridge when we get to it. summer update. lexi has been getting to go swimming with her babysitter and she is doing good with being in the water. the babysitter says shes like a little fish now. so awesome since she doesn't like baths. dont get me going about that one. she started summer school today and its only one day a week. im hoping it helps her a little more. the first week of july me and lexi are taking our own little vacation. its going to be an adventure but im ready for it. me and her deserve a much needed break. especially from work and everything it will be fun to get out and do some things. wont be a huge vacation but a little get away. i just hope the weather is nice and warm for us.
