Hi,

this is not 'an emergency', but they do need to get her properly checked and her meds raised asap.  Did the pediatrician test FT3 and FT4?  If not, thy need to be tested.  Far better proper testing is done before she sees a specialist.

How is she feeling.  if she feels ok, then don't curtain her activities too much.  But if she's not feeling good, do let her take it easy.

When do you think you can get her in to see the specialist?  If it is m ore than 1 - 2 weeks away, I'd be asking them for a cancellation appointmnet (and explaining why).
