The Babe caught a stomach bug right before his birthday. It wasn't too bad a couple days of diarrhea and a couple of middle-of-the-night vomits. It seemed it was running its course and he was in good spirits. Missed a couple days of school, but was feeling better, when Buddy got it.
Then I got it.
While ours wasn't as bad as his, we managed to get over it within a couple of days.
In the meantime, we gave it back to Babe, who wasn't completely healed.
This lead to a doctor's visit.
The nurse practitioner said is was most likely a virus and it would eventually run its course.
Babe wasn't getting better and was getting weaker. He has lost about 5 pounds. He is so skinny.
His poor little body was working hard, but he wasn't getting better. And this past Sunday's was one of the worst days yet. Lots of vomiting and diarrhea and unexpected naps.
Monday we headed to the lab for blood work. Here's the Man giving him a little pep talk. He did great.
And yesterday, we went back the Doctor. He was really surprised that it had gone on so long. He said the urine samples, stool samples, the blood work, all looked consistent with a colon bacteria and that nothing major was the cause. Nothing to be alarmed by. At any rate, he wants to do more stool samples and change his diet to high probiotics, fiber and protein.
Hopefully by today we will have a better idea of what's going on and get some medicine.
Poor little dude has been in good spirits and trying to eat.
Praying that this all ends soon!
