Re 608 Iron issues!

Thank you so much for you reply!

Makes me a bit more concerned about my little girl!
Do you think I must wait two months to see if the Chela-fer works better than the Ferrimed?

And could you perhaps recommend a pediatric haematologist in centurion/pta/jhb that could help our here?

Thanks again!

You must not wait any longer, your daughter has not responded to iron so far. Your best bet would be to ask to see the Paediatric Haematologist at the Steve Biko Academic Hospital in the paediatric department.

I got two dvds from the classic seeris, " Invasion of Time"  and " Black Orchid" . Tom can now recognise the TARDIS and the fourth, fifth and tenth Doctor Whos. He''s too young for the new seeris of Doctor Who but he has watched some of the less scary parts of the classic seeris. He prefers " In the Night Garden"  though. Oh well :D. Tom has been a lot more shouty and anxious as well recently. We''re trying to strike the balance between letting him have the space and quietness he needs and ensuring that we still go out when we want or need to, if only for his brother''s sake as well. Luckily we have a number of quieter playgrounds and walks we can go on which help. He goes back to his school this Friday and as he loves the school that should help him to feel more settled.
