Got the call...


They moved fast on that! By the time I got back from taking the kids to school I had a message on my machine from the Dr's office. J5 has an appointment with the specialist at the hospital on Sept 29th at 10am. In the mean time I will be racking my brain to try and figure out where it is coming from... from my milk? from the old hardwood floors? from our water pipes? from the windows? blowing in through the screens? I just have no clue... and that is part of the turmoil, not knowing where it is coming from to be able to stop it. And what damage will he sustain from this...

I think I need to have my lead level checked and also J4's lead level checked to see if that will help rule things out... if it is the house then J4 should have high levels also, and if his levels are low and mine are high then maybe he is getting it from me....

I think you can buy lead test kits (for water) at Home Depot. You might also call your county's public health department and see if they can send you one. Then you'd know if it was in the water, at least. Also, do you know when your house was painted?

I am going to look for one of those kits. I called the health dept. They are testing J4 on Monday and will be inspecting the house. All of the inside of the house has been painted within the last year or 2, a lot of walls replaced also.
