Henry's test results are in
The pediatrician called this afternoon. Henry still has giardia. In a weird way this is good news because it explains his drop in the percentiles, his tummy issues and hopefully his erratic sleep patterns. We will start a 6 day antibiotic tomorrow. The pediatrician is sending me to a compounding pharmacy not our local drug store chain. This pharmacy specializes in masking the flavor of terrible tasting medicine. The pharmacist promises the medicine will taste like bubble gum so Henry will not spit it out. We will see. It all sounds too wonderful to believe. There is a catch, they don't take insurance! We have to file a claim to be reimbursed. I am looking forward to Henry feeling better soon!
