Hello! I was just wondering if there's a support thread for parents of children with chronic illnesses? My youngest son doesn't have a formal diagnosis yet (except for "presumed allergies" to several foods) but he's sick all the time and I'm having a really hard time with it right now. I'm very upset that he might miss spending Christmas with his grandparents because he's sick *again*. :( I just don't know what to do, I want him to be healthy and to do all the things his siblings do but he keeps missing out because he's always getting sick with something or other. Right now I'm waiting for the doctor's office to call back, I think he's got bronchitis. Last weekend he was hospitalized (for the fifth time since he was nine months old) with vomiting and dehydration. He gets better from one thing and comes down with another and I feel so useless, there seems to be no preventing it. :( I don't know what to do anymore but I'd like ot talk with other parents who are dealing with similar issues.
