Night Time Tummy Troubles

Posted Jan 15 2010 12:00am
I know I have said time and time again, that I am blessed that Dylan is well and healthy, things could always be worse (and thank god they arent). But I must know, when will these kids every get a break? Im sure the other Hirschsprungs families can relate to that question.

Dylan woke up at 3 am this morning, his stomach rumbling, crying that he needed a diaper, his words were "I poopied Mommy, change my diaper"....But there was nothing there. He continued this for an hour, I kept trying to massage his belly, put his body in positions that would help relieve gas if that was the problem, while I rubbed his back. Nothing seemed to help. It really breaks a mothers heart for her child to be complaining of pain and discomfort, and yet theres nothing she can do to help. Hugs and love is all a mom can do at times like this....My poor little guy finally went back to sleep, and woke up this morning fine. So it is a good possibility that it could have been gas (air) build up that was causing him such pain. He hasnt had any bowel movements today, and after last night that makes me wonder if an obstruction is starting but you know what....I worry too to much......So hopefully its nothing and today things will return to normal. On days like this is does help to keep a positive attitude and be optimistic. If not the worries and struggling would drive you crazy other wise.
