Hi, just wondering if this reach out site involves health related topics for children? I'm wanting a bit of advice as a mother and seeking any information from other parents who may of experienced the same situation with their child/ children?.

Welcome to the forum. I thought I'd touch base as I have ongoing chronic health issues and my daughter's just spent some time in hospital. So, while I don't have professional training I might be able to help or point you somewhere that can. I've personally found support groups aligned with the condition are very helpful as they provide a lot the background lived information, the doctors may not provide. A few cautions there, however. The people who tend to be the long termers tend to have a more severe variation of the condition hence why they're still there. You can also get some zealots who only think of the condition and don't lead a balanced life. Some groups tend to be more upbeat that others. However, I've found they help me feel les alone. My conditions are rare and it's been o wonderful t find people like me, and not just because we have the same condition but our lives might also be quite similar and we have a lot in common.
I hope that helps.
