Poor easy child. He's had this sore throat for about 2 or 3 weeks now. He went to the GP last Wed because it had been hurting to turn his neck (swollen lymph nodes) for 3 or 4 days. Strep test and culture were negative. He's still miserable. His lymph nodes are still swollen. He went back to the doctor and he has a canker sore in his throat. The GP rx'd something called Magic Mouthwash which is 30cc's of this and 20cc's of that (don't remember). He gets canker sores quite often. And he's been sick *a lot*. Plus, when he gets sick, it lingers for a long time. He only has a week or so off from being sick when he gets sick again. When my mom cut his hair last (couple weeks ago), she noted that his hair is getting thinner. She said you can tell a lot about a persons health from their hair. I asked that they do blood work to check for nutritional deficiencies. He doesn't eat like he should and he doesn't take his vitamins. They're going to get back to me. Please keep a good thought for my boy. I'm worried about him.
