the silent prince's lead levels are up to 45. this means that he still has a significant amount of lead in his bones. that means that he's probably been exposed for a very long time.
45 is the magic number for needing to be put back on the medication to get rid of the lead, but he's already been through the treatment twice now and the doctor doesn't seem to anxious to do that to him again (there are some risks to the treatment.)
i am suprisingly calm about the whole thing, perhaps it hasn't hit me yet. the next step is getting him hooked up with the lead clinic at yale. and we should hear about all that tomorrow.
my biggest fear is that the lead has been the cause of his delays all along; that it's not just developmental problems he might grow out of, but actual damage done to his brain.
God am i frustrated and tired and so ready to hear different news... better news.
people keep telling me to hang in and i always say i am, there's nothing else i can do. but i'd like some more options.
this is my prince.
i don't really like the idea of putting his picture up, but i want you all to know him (and his amazing face) so that you can continue your prayers and positive thoughts for him (and the rest of us too.)
God's peace y'all.
