What an artist!

This is my son's drawing of his favorite toy, TJ Bearytales (below). The boy is only 3 years, 10 months old...

Lead Scare

I think my son was autistic from birth. I don't believe in the vaccine-causes-autism theory. But I have to admit, the lead recalls that have affected some of my son's toys scared me enough to call my son's pediatrician and request a lead test. My son was always big on toy-chewing. The doctor agreed right away, it doesn't hurt to be on the safe side.

But then, what if he's lead-poisoned? Not only that will make me very worried about his health, but also - argh - my son will have to be treated with chelation. If that's the case, I hope there will be bona-fide doctors that can provide this treatment, and we won't need to rely on some creepy DAN doc.
