Thanks kades! They did an x-ray the first time I took him, he just wants another one when we go back to see if there has been any change. I doubt very seriously there will be anything new since the first one was normal & he has not gotten any worse. Granted he's doing better, but I'm tired of having to get him out of school early or take him in late to make the 30 minute drive to the doc's office. I know he's getting tired of it too, he told me today when we left that he'd be glad when he didn't have to have someone poking at his hip every week.

In an effort to keep drinking some fluids, we've been making an effort to NOT buy as much soda, and to buy some non-caffienated drinks that both the kids and the adults will drink. I'm also trying to steer clear of drinks laden with sugar. Thusly:

<rant>

Why, WHY!?!? Must the predominate, and sometimes, ONLY, flavor of sugar-free Koolaid available be Tropical Punch? I can't stand that stuff! Why not some other basic flavors, like a s/f grape, orange, etc.?

Sorry Crewsk .... I can only imagine how frustrating this must be for all of you. I've had several friends who have dealt with similar situations (not the symptoms as TJ but going back and forth with no solid answers) and they requested a referral to a doctor a childrens hospital close by (Rileys) and after they saw the doctors there they got the answers they were looking for. Just a thought.

Thanks Sizz! The doc he's seeing is a part of the children's hospital, that's another thing that makes it so frustrating.

Allen, I feel your pain!! I hate tropical punch flavored anything. It just leaves a nasty taste in my mouth.

allen, i hear you. i'm caffeine-free & drink juices & fruit drinks or pop like gingerale 'cept they're so sugary- i dilute mine often. look around; you'll likely find some other flavors to drink. took me awhile, then i found drinks i'd drink.

Oh, we have others, as well. We keep juice around for the kids, and I usually keep some powered gatorade handy. I'm just venting frustration, since PeppA bought the gritty, Tropical Punch Koolaid.

What's with the price of eggs? It's been going up non-stop for over a month now? I just looked at the grocery store today, and a 60-pack (5 dz), costs almost $9US!

I'm with you, Allen. What the crap! I am goin' goofy over eggs here, too. About a month ago I was paying 49 cents a dozen. Wednesday they were $1.19 a dozen. Have the chickens unionized?
