I'm starving my child today. UPDATE**

And I feel like shit about it. He's been on miralax since Saturday so anything he has eaten in the last 4 days has gone right through him. After one day on the stuff he refused to eat any type of solid food so he's been on a formula only diet. Well today is the day before his scope tomorrow so he's clear liquids only today until midnight then nothing until he wakes up after the scope tomorrow morning.



I've tried every clear avenu on the market so far today. I knew it was going to be hard because even on a good day he doesn't drink juice or water. The nurse line said to just syringe what I could into his mouth and make some ice pops out of the rest.



Ugh I just feel bad because I know he's hungry and still having diarrhea.


Update **

We just got home a few minutes ago from the hospital. Everything went well it just took forever and day because the first GI surgery ran over. He's still got bad diarrhea but that should subside in a few days and he finally got to have his bottle with his milk. He's a little lethargic but that's expected.

So basically what he saw with the scope is his plyoric muscle was a little tight due to in inflammation in his intestine which looks like a fungal infection due to a gluten allergy. They took biopsies from three places so we should know within a week what it actually is.

Thanks for the well wishes !
