my faith in Wilma’s new GI doc is restored. After a horrific weekend, the bad news is that she has to have another xray and an enema before she gets a monometry. The xray is to see where everything is— top? Bottom? Are these 8 zillion poops coming AROUND a blockage? The exam Friday didn’t indicate a blockage but before a monometry we have to make sure. the monometry is to measure the pressure in the anus. Hopefully that will give us some answers. My guess is that there’s a nerve ending problem or a pressure problem, but not Hirschsprungs.
But the GREAT news is that she’s not (yet) getting a biopsy and she’s now OFF two of the three new meds— one of the meds caused SUCH horrificness this weekend.
She’ll probably still get sent home from school tomorrow (though I plan to try to send her, with a nice email to her teachers about what’s going on)—I mean how many times do kindergarten teachers want to change a 6 year old? They usually do it once or twice a day— but four to five to ten times? nah, they’ll call me. But we’re on the road to normalcy and some sort of diagnosis. Hooooooray!
Meanwhile it’s such a pain to write down every time she poops and try to find the piece of paper. I’m now using a nifty little program where I can enter in poops for both kids. And meds. And therapy appointments. And doctor calls. And med changes. All the stuff that’s on a million pieces of paper all over my office. This free program is online– check it out! http://birdhousehq.com/
