Update

Ash was discharged on Saturday night. The main peadiatrician at SMF said that they are hoping for a natural chelation since chemical chelations have side-effects. And anyway since his blood lead level has come down from 188 to 65 ug/dl in a week, and since he doesnt seem to have any of the symptoms associated (seizures, headaches, vomiting, stomach ache etc) and is at his active best, he doesnt want to intervene. He checked with doctors at Apollo and Child Trust and various other hosps in Chennai. He will also be checking with the docs in Vellore and letting us know what to do. And we can increase iron and calcium in his diet.
The suspect for the poisoning according to them is the siddha meds we gave Ash for 3 weeks.


But yesterday night, Ash developed fever, cough and vomiting. Vomiting and stomach are symptomatic of lead poisoning, so we will be going to the dr to check on these two counts. Dr. Thomas had let us go home on Sat bcoz ash had no symptoms.

Oh no. I hope he's okay, and that it is just a virus, and not related to the lead levels. Please keep us posted

It looks like it is only a virus, and he is being treated for that. The dr has checked with many of his peers and they have all advised against medication right now. We are hoping the Friday results will show a further decline in lead levels.

What? Poisoining! Oh Gosh! One after the other...I hope its nothing very serious and he'll be well soon.

You must be going through tough times. My daughter has also started montessori and all of us are stressed out now adjusting to her new routine. I am sure you are undergoing similar situation with Mira having started playschool.
