Things get better only to get worse again. My little man was starting to stool everyday until yesterday. His belly swelled up and he didn't eat or drink much at all. It was a struggle just to get him to take his meds. (please read other posts to know what I'm talking about) So about 5:30 I had to give him an enema. He never misses his dose of laxatives so I don't know what is making up get impacted. And I don't understand how he can get so backed up in just one day. His stool had a little blood in it. But since the doctors around here don't know what is wrong with him we had to call his GI. She told us to give him the enemas with the mira-lax just to keep him cleaned out, and to ask the geneticist when he goes at the end of the month.
Last night his cramps were so bad he ended up sleeping with me and I had to rub his belly most of the night. A warm bath didn't help any. Still he woke up throughout the night crying from the pain. Tylenol didn't do much either. So today he is sleepy.
I wouldn't wish this on anyone but I honestly think that if some young girls had to take care of a son like mine for a week they would think twice about having kids.
I don't see how anyone, especially a baby, can be so happy when they are so constipated. He must be miserable. But then he's been like this for so long that he doesn't know anything else. I hope we finally get some answers soon.
