Food is not the issue

We had a phone meeting with a holistic food counselor to go over Jaxon's blood results/food allergy document. Turns out Jaxon doesn't really have any issues with food in relation to an allergy or sensitivity. The only things that came up were some seafood things, which anyone who knows me, knows I don't eat it/prepare it/serve it...so no problem with that! These results are great for if/when we ever get him to eat orally! The counselor confirmed that he is currently on the best diet that he could be on given his situation. So this was basically a second opinion of confirmation to stick with our current dietitian at Children's Hospital.

We are still waiting for his urine labs to come back so we can have our meeting with the holistic medical doctor (who swears he can cure him). I'll be calling again first thing Monday morning inquiring about the labs. Otherwise Jax has been doing pretty good. He had one bad night that gave us a bit of a scare that he was starting a relapse, but he bounced back and was fine the next night. We think it MAY have been teething since he popped out 2 new teeth in one day. He has a bit of a runny nose which may be from the teething or something he picked up from all the passing around at the birthday party. His other front tooth broke through his gums and it was bleeding awful. It seems as if pain (and congestion) may trigger his GI issues because he was up non-stop getting sick. I gave him Tylenol before bed last night and once again around 4am and he did well until almost 6am. So we're happy to not be calling the hospital for that!

Brady is getting a bit more daring, but hasn't done anything too new...he just loves to move across that floor as fast as he can like the stealth cat that he is :) He's also not going down as easy for bed, but once down, he consistently sleeps 11 hours. Oh and the cuddles...Brady's cuddles have gotten better and longer - he just melts me. We've been really enjoying a lot of time outside every afternoon now with the gates set up. I find the boys starring up into the sky watching cotton float from the tree through the air...those are the moments I'm trying to soak up and really appreciate and love.

I'm sorry to hear Jax had a bad night. I know when my Logan is teething he drools - a lot. Like, a St Bernard a lot. so, you might be right about the teething causing his problems lately. If he's swallowing all of that drool...
Regardless, I hope you guys continue to do well and hope and pray that this holistic Dr can heal him.

We noticed the boys have increased gag reflexes when they have just cut a tooth.
