    My 2yr son always sick since birth
    An_262981 posted:
    Okay I am a mom at her wits end. My ds was born full term but was a bad pregnancy. when he was born he was born coombs positive and was sent home on a bili blanket. From day one my son has been since. He spent a weekend in the hospital when he was only a month old due to fever and vomiting. He gets a "virus" every other week. I am beginning to think that is just a go to dx. He gets these fever and the last one caused a febrile seizure. He has a cough that never seems to go away and has had pneumonia 3 times in 6 months. He gets bouts of diarrhea. I feel so bad for my kid. I was a stay at home mom for almost 18 months with him because I was scared to leave him. And now it has become something we just live with. And it shouldn't be that way.

    I guess what I am asking is , am I being that crazy mom? or Is there a real possibility that there is something truly wrong with my kid
