So, she is now taking a round of Prometrium which is a stronger medicine to jumpstart her period. This diagnosis would also explain the severe acne that Hadrian randomly seemed to develop over the past 6 months. She has been to the dermatologist so that we can try to get her skin cleared up again.
With the antibiotics, acne medicine, and the Prometrium, Hadrian is struggling. She is exhausted. And, this morning, she got up for school, and was greeted with throwing up. She has felt crappy all day. The hormones are definitely giving her some side effects and are causing her to just plain out feel bad. And, still, no period. She will continue swallowing those pills to work on it, though!
Just add the Polycystic Ovary Syndrome to her Compartment Syndrome, and Hadrian is now just one big syndrome!! LOL. She has to be the strongest kid I know. She exemplifies the Chinese proverb "get knocked down 7 times, get up 8." She is digging deep to have what it takes to get up one more time!
Hadrian and I went with Haley and Austin to the Georgia National Fair in Perry on Monday. Just walking around the fair caused Hadrian severe leg pain! Her legs were killing her!! It is pretty sad when she is having a harder time than her mother getting around! I hope this is not just a fact of life for her now. : (
If so, it makes me sad to think about what a struggle everyday activities may be for her. I do alot of massaging on her calves at night . . . whatever it takes to get her through this.
My girls and I were recently at a wedding, and Hadrian was very aware of the big scars on her legs. This was the first time I have noticed her truly feeling self conscious about her legs. She said it didn't help that we all mentioned how obvious her scars looked while being in a dress. Sorry, Hadrian!! Those big scars still get to me. But, let me assure you that no scars will ever define you. You are beautiful . . . inside and out, with scars or without, no matter what!!
