Well the "wait and see" approach is still the typical one used by many doctors. Usually, it can be ok to do so that the child is older and can handle treatment better. But it's really on a case by case basis. With the location of hers, I don't think wait and see is the best approach. I know HMOs can be a pain. Is there any way to switch to a PPO? Even just for a year or two and then you can switch back. It can make seeing specialists a lot easier while looking for treatment. Hope the consult goes well! hugs.
