Just got out of the hospital with my daughter again. Not sure if I posted last month about the ordeal with her teacher screaming at her after she found out she intended on going to the principal about this teacher bullying other students. After screaming at her in front of the class for 10 minutes and encouraging the class to join in, my daughter was in hysterics. Immediately removed her from the class but the damage had already been done.
Her health deteriorated, went back into a crohn's flare up and ended up at the hospital on the 3rd of January. Was released on the 9th after getting her pancreatitis cleared up. Apparently the crohn's of the stomach inflammed it so much that it was pressing on the pancreas and caused pancreatitis. This is the 3rd time she's had that in 5 months and this time it wasn't caused by a drug.
Poor baby. We thought she would be able to go to school today, but she's had a cold, and too much fiber yesterday (she caught me half alseep and begged for cereal) and now after 45 minutes in the bathroom and lots of pain and blood, she's back in bed with a painkiller.
Not sure what to do at this point. I think that she needs to get better but there is no "quick fix" for this. It takes time, diet, and the proper meds. Well not sure if we are on the proper meds, and this diet is killing me. She lost 16lbs with the ordeal since the 13th of December, and I have only once been able to get her calorie intake above 1000 for a day once since we came home from the hospital.
She's on a low fat, low fiber diet. Usually I can find recipies for low fat OR low fiber, but I can find lean meats only for the both of them. She can't have vegetables or fruits (too much fiber) and cannot have milk products (lactose intolerant, drinks lactaid) and sugar gives her gas which causes incredible pain.
Sorry there really isn't a whole lot anyone here can do, but I just needed somewhere to vent about my helplessness and feelings of complete failure.
