Liquid diet and a 5 year old...

So I FINALLY got Gabe into the pediatric gastro dr at Mt. WAshingtion Childrens Hospital here in Baltimore. We have one of the best dr.s in the state of Maryland. I was so happy to NOT have to dealw ith military crap anymore! WE are fianlly getting some answers!

For those of you who don't know, and you probably don't care to know either but I am going to tell you anyway, for the last three years Gabe has very severe bowel issues. His PCM *primary care manager* with the military REFUSED to give us a referal to have him checked out. Now that Aaron is no longer military, we can go where we want when we want and I LOVE IT.

So anyway, this weekend Gabe is on a liquid diet, 34mg of mirilax *twocaps* in 16fl oz every 8 hours and an adult FLEET enima once a day for 3 days. *yes he was THIS backedup*. On Tuesday we go back in to take x-rays to find out what is going on in his little tum tum. He has gone from 45 lbs in aug to 34lbs on Tuesday. He went from 50th% in growth chart ot 15%...this is NOT good.

The baby is cutting molars.

That is about it.

Will have more news in a few days:)


  1. Wow! He's the same weight as Annika now. Crazy!

  2. Oh honey, the things I could tell you about constipated little boys. I am so glad you got in at Mt. Washington. They are wonderful there. Good luck.
