Thanks everyone...I really appreciate that yu all care abouyt what happens to me and my son... He is doing so much better. Now that they have added the neurontin to the mix it seems to calm him down a bit more...no more outbursts. But I know that it might not last....I am very hopeful. The Mono has him in an uproar....the girl that he got it from has a boyfriend, and that is another problem....he really likes her and as far as I'm concerned she is not a very good person playing with my son like that....I hope it doesn't send him over the edge again...
off to the pain doc....
