I wanted to update yesterday, but was waiting to hear back from the GI office with some test results. So far everything is negative and normal including Celiac Disease and the food panel (blood tests). Whew! I was confident about these, but still a little worried. All but one of the stool sample-tests came back and I have to get one more sample in. So we'll have to get results of two more tests - I don't know what they're for, and quite frankly, I like it that way. I get worried and go google-crazy until results are in. I'm hoping this is all just viral-related, and nothing untreatable is found (cross your fingers too)!
So I have to "catch" one more sample of his diarrhea and get that to the lab. I want to wait until his latest diaper rash has calmed down a bit before taping a bag to the area. His poor little bum has really flared back up again. We gave him a baking soda bath last night, although we're not sure if it helped much.
The boys had speech/feeding therapy today and did well. The therapist is so happy to see their progress. They still sound like babbling fools to everyone else, but we see improvement big time over the past 2 weeks. They will mock what you say at times, like Jax was trying to say BLOCK when I repeated it while taking out the blocks. I'm hoping we can take them to the state fair this week and go see all the animals and make their sounds.
Poor Brady has a big fat bloody lip from falling down yesterday. I couldn't find the source of the blood at first and was so scared he knocked a tooth! But I realized it was his lip and got the bleeding to stop. Then he swelled up and looked sad. The busted lip and his runny nose make for a miserable lookin' dude! He's still his sassy self trying to bite Jaxon every time they wrestle. He nearly took off poor Jax's toe. I tried explaining "karma" to him, but something tells me he didn't understand...
