Well, this week we started with a new PCP. She is wonderful! One of those doctors that you just know cares so much about their patients.
Our 4 yr old went Wednesday, doctor prescribed an anti-depressant/anti-anxiety medication. It's called Mitrazapine. We did a full pill the first night, went to bed without a fuss and slept all night. This morning she was a bit of a zombie though, so doctor told us to take her down to 1/2 a pill to see if that changes things.
She gave us her direct (home) email and asked me to go ahead and email her the details on our 6 year old prior to her visit Friday (tomorrow) morning.
I did just that, and she wrote me back to let me know that she certainly sounds very depressed and we will talk more Friday.
It feels so nice to have a doctor you trust! Plus she is very close with the girl's therapists, so they can all talk and compare notes.
We were a bit late to therapy yesterday morning, so instead of the EMDR, she went ahead and did some attachment therapy. At first my 4 yr old seems uninterested, but she quickly warmed up. Our therapist is very chipper and talked in a cute funny voice. My 4 yr old in her blunt fashion looked at her and said, "Why you talkin' weird for?" (yes she said it like that).
We did a few of the things at home last night again and she loved it!
I hope she feels even better soon with medication and proper therapy in place.
I will update everyone on how our 6 yr old's visit goes Friday!
