Hi to all of you who gave such valuable advice on monday re my worries over my grandaughter's health. I was very upset and worried as you know. She saw GP this morning. He said he suspects it is a vitamin deficiency. He has prescribed antibiotic cream and a product to replace her usual Johnsons baby bath. He said more red meat in her diet. He will assess her again in a couple of months. He said the tests on a small child for vitamin deficiency are a bit traumatic, so won't go that route unless she does not improve or the sores and hair loss get worse.
My son also discovered that the HV 'was' alerted by the NHS after the Calpol incident and a HV 'did' visit! Kept that one quiet!
The doctor, after my son voiced concerns about her speech, is arranging for a HV to assess her.
So most things that can be resolved are being resolved.
And you should all be very proud of yourselves. As you gave me the confidence, to give my son the confidence to sort the problems out by letting us know he does have rights as a father, even though he wasn't married.
So a little girl has now had the help she needed thanks to you all. I am so grateful.
Best wishes to you all.
