I read that with my mouth hanging open. Surely this is a very, very extreme case of Munchausens Syndrome by Proxy??? Thats the only way my brain can compute this--that to some extent she was sick, not just twisted. I'm so shocked by this I dont know what to think
MBP is no longer included in the DSM or ICD as a dx (and I am dubious about that DX as it eminates from old Roy Meadows himself), so she hasn't got that- link however, , she is clarly one sick woman. Poor kid. Hope he is loved now.
Sweat test for CF can be inclonsusive and even blood test can not always confirm it depends on the which genetic mutation it is there are very few that have been identified. even a brohnscopsy would not necessarily be used to diagnose CF lung damage can be caused by reflux, or repeated infection. my DS2 has CF and has never had an infection. his lungs look better that lots of his peers. just wanted to clarify that as lots of families are facing treatment being withdrawn because genetic mutation caannot be identified. this has a direct impact on their childrens life expectantacy which of course is a distressing situation for any parent to be in. we all know how stressful having no dx or told you are imaginaing things is.
What this woman did is inexcusable and she is obviously a sick individual.
