Well I finally took difficult child to the hospital and got her the endoscopy to see why she keeps getting sick and throwing up. Turns out she has several stomach ulcers. They are still running more tests to see if she is lactose/dairy intolerant but most likely the reason for the extreme nausea, stomach pain, and throwing up are the direct result of the ulcers. I feel bad that she has to go through having stomach ulcers at her age, but I am grateful we finally found out what is wrong with her. So turns out her symptoms aren't all in her head. She has a follow up appointment on April 1st to discuss possible medications and changes to her diet. For now we are being told to avoid citrus, soda, and fatty foods. Hopefully we can treat her symptoms successfully so she won't continue to be in pain. I am hoping this will put an end to her missing so much school. She starts school at my work at tomorrow morning. I am hoping her attendance greatly improves with the move. And really hoping she can meet some decent friends here. The school psychologist is awesome and I know difficult child will love him. Hopefully the rest falls into place. For now I am grateful we are making progress and have finally solved the mystery of the stomach issues. Hopefully with good treatment difficult child will do well.
