Botox Update

In other news, we've decided to go with sedation when D gets her Botox injections. After much thought, advice and talks with other parents, it is just the best route for us to go with her. It can take up to 30 days for insurance approval, so I'll keep updating when we know more. Thanks so much for everyone's words of encouragement with this process.

I'm glad to hear you reached a decision. It's good that you're going with your gut on this one. You know D best, after all.
Monkey Boy is getting his injections on Wednesday. We're doing the spray anesthetic instead of sedation. He's only getting 4 injections (yeah, easy for me to say - I'm not the one getting shots!) and he handles his other shots well, so we decided to give it a go. I'll let you know how he fares, and I'm looking forward to hearing about D's experience with Botox as well. Take care.

I honestly think sedation is the best way to go. Kids can get really worked up in the hospital. Good luck with the insurance company!
