Well this past month has been a struggle to say the least. We thought about 4 weeks ago Isaac was sick from a viral stomach bug or possibly a Hirschsprung's related infection. We did antibiotics for the first time as a preventative to be safe. Which totally messed up his whole system. We've been trying to get him back regular. Working closely with his surgeon, chiropractor, and nutritional practitioner. Fast forward to now.. a few weeks later and we are having issues again.
First it starts with stomach cramping, loose mushy stools (not diarrhea), and this past week has been accompanied by blood and mucus. This is leaving us stumped because nothing has changed in his diet. He has been food allergy tested. We don't do dairy, limit soy and gluten and absolutely no GMO's. We started thinking back to this past year and really believe all these situations are not all viral but some type of other GI episodes.
We saw his surgeon today who also feels the same.. this is not viral but some type of other GI issue. She does feel it is not Hirschsprung's related though. Which is good. She decided to consult with our GI dr (they work in the same clinic) and have him get in touch with us and see Isaac asap. She feels maybe more food allergy testing is needed or maybe our GI will have some other ideas of what it could be.
This week has been stressful, to say the least. More questions, some answers, and a lot to think about. We enrolled Isaac in a toddler parent program at a local private school. He was unable to attend today because of what has been going on. We only go one day a week so it was a bummer we didn't get to do that today.
His 3rd birthday in about 2 weeks away. I can't believe it. I having planning a party last minute because of the issues he has been having. This year the theme is Ninja Turtles :) His current obession. I hope we can be healthy for his party we are so excited to celebrate. ♡ I will update more as I get it..
As always, thanks for following our journey!
