Just popping in to say hi, haven't even gone back one page. In Colorado, family reunion this afternoon.
Kathy, I gather the biopsy results were good, yay!
mom61508... my answer is always pills as being easiest.
Applesauce as a route to hide things (except with the blatant approach, "kiddo, eat this one bite then you can go do something") has worked well for me... took a while for the kids to get used to swallowing whatever pill I give them, or taking that bite of applesauce, but with some practice, it's been really helpful. Or, if you need to, bet you could hide it in a bit of chocolate sauce (Alton Brown's recipe on food network is really, really yummy).
Um... feel really behind. Exciting, CS, very exciting. Do you have my email addy? We need to get in touch, we'll be in the general Seattle area, um, well, we're leaving CO on Monday, 3 days of driving, then I think 2 weeks with my parents. JR, did you write and I forgot to respond? Very possible. We should write again, I'd love to figure out a way to swing through Oregon on my way home. Deb, are you around? I think I'm going to aim to arrive back in TX around July 22, so back-tracking that's, say, leaving my parents around July 16? Very roughly.
As for us... very hit-or-miss with pills here, the routine is, well, no routine. Much easier to stick to a routine at my parents' house, but stomach aches in both kids have almost completely gone away (and sometimes I think DS had stomach aches in the morning because he was still tired--that happened once here, he needed to sleep in really late and then he was fine)...
that that's resolved and not just being ignored by DD since she's having so much fun.
DS is having some up and down days, can't tell if it's lack of sleep, or too much activity (not a lot of quiet downtime here), or it's more biochemical.
Are there good websites that really discuss symptoms of high/low neurotransmitters in kids? My google searches aren't turning up great stuff, but I've also not had enough time to really put in due to the trip (this is my first computer time since Monday), and the books/papers I have with me aren't enough. I feel like I need to know more. But figuring it out, vs the change in routine, is probably too tricky anyway. I still want to know though.
