Born with HIV.
Living daily with HIV and worrying about the stigma of that.
Hard first three years in two living situations.
Separation from her brother.
Then last summer and her vaccine reaction and hospitalization. Missing her favorite week of camp. Taking a couple months to build up her activity and health again.
Four weeks ago it all went downhill yet again. She was hospitalized yet again. She had a horrible headache that once started did not end for even five minutes, nausea, confusion, light and noise sensitivity, unsteadiness in her walking, reflux like symptoms, ringing ears. Two days of this and she was hospitalized where they ran many tests. They found nothing. They did not see a correlation to the events of last summer, even though she hasn't had headaches any other time.
Wow! I have a few hunches as to what you are thinking, follow your gut mama. It is not at all fair, but I'm thankful she has you to fight for and comfort her. It's never fair when kids have chronic conditions, nor when they gain new ones. There's not a lot I can say about than other than, I agree. It's not fair.

Hence the title of my blog
Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong
Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow
Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom
But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
