Audrey and Emily
I got calls form the GI nurse on both girls today. Audrey had her GastroGraffin Enema last friday and the results came back today. It showed that she was very very constipated, that's it, that's all that test does, xrays and cleans out, dosen't give any more information then that- according to the nurse. So we don't know why she dosen't poop but we are to continue on m.o.m. everyday. which i hate doing it makes her belly rumble and gush and still dosen't poop daily. She has had all of an hour of sleep today and its 9pm!

Emily's stool test came back negative for blood as well. Which may or may not be accurate, the test was done 2 weeks after i first saw the blood. she hasn't had reddish/pinkish or bloody stools since.

Today she is eating a little bit. 3 days of no food and today she ate a half pear, some rice krispies, a couple pieces of bacon an egg and a little bit of turkey. yesterday and this morning she had white poop, i looked it up and it said it could be from antacids but i can't remember for the life of me if i gave her any mylanta, i am pretty sure i didn't, this afternoon her b/m wasn't so white so i hope it's nothing to worry about. that girl could fill a book with all she worries me about poop! LOL i am sorry i don't get much time to respond to everybody please know you are in my thoughts and prayers!

Julie - I have three children. My youngest Katie is my refluxer. My first Ben was very colicy and is ADHD. My middle Jakob is pretty easy going. Katie had it bad as a baby no sleep for two years. She was on Nutramagin, Prevacid and Zantac. Thought we were through it but after age three it came back big time. After her scope she was put on Prevacid 45mg a day and mylanta as needed. Scope was in Sept. Showed damage in stomach and espophogus. It took about 7 months of medication and Reflux diet for her to start feeling better.
Poor little sweetie. Do you think the m.o.m. works better than miralax?

i totally think mirilax is better then m.o.m. but the GI says it's not approved for kids under 1 (really under 2) but he uses it for kids 1 and up. I don't have a dose and i don't want to take the chance. m.o.m. dosen't look like it's working out so i will see what they have next.

We used miralax for Elyse from an adjusted age of 2 mos and we used it daily for 8 or 9 mos. She had 3 drs caring for her at the time and they all knew she was on it (and her surgeon was the one who prescribed it). it makes me mad that all that was done was a clean-out. :(
Check with your
doctor first!
