Tummy trouble

Posted Sep 07 2010 1:49pm

Just when I thought our little man had turned a corner, health wise, he barfs. Last night. Everywhere.

So, I took him in this morning to our regular Ped to have him checked out. He still doesn’t have a fever but continues to have loose BM’s. He is losing weight and I can tell in his arms and stomach. He still doesn’t want to eat much and last night when he threw up, I knew I needed to get him in. They took a stool sample (lucky them!) and will have it tested for Rotavirus and C. diff . We should have the results back later this week.

Until then we are off dairy and on a high starch diet. We’ll see if this helps. I’m also talking to his clinic about switching enzyme brands. Currently, we are on Creon but have had trouble with them since the hospital. The IV antibiotics could have destroyed all the good bacteria in his intestines causing tummy issues. We have added in probiotics (good bacteria) to see if this helps at all. I sure hope we get good culture results from that hospital stay because the after math has not been pleasant. I do hope that it’s nothing more then needing to start a new enzyme or going off dairy. I’ll keep you posted!
