Being the parent of a child with medical issues can be even more of a challenge that just following doctors' orders. Sometimes doctors don't think to tell you something, or have no idea of all the "tricks of the trade" for real life situations. Hopefully the tips included here will help give parents some ideas for problems that might come up. These tips have been collected from many parents, but should not be taken as medical advice. Consult your child's doctor for more information. If you have more useful tips to share, please use the "contact me" link at the top right of the page.
