Matt's hydrogen breathing test was moved to tomorrow (thank GOD!). It wasn't until the very end of March. He's missing so much school with the stomach problems..gas, cramps, nausea, diarrhea...I feel so bad for him.
So I need to leave work early so I can be home by 7, wake him up, so we can leave by 7:30 to get to Manchester. The test will take about 4 hours.
I'm not even going to think about seeing my pillow until 1:30...IF I'm lucky.
Anyone know where I can score some intravenous caffine? LOL
**So the normally 6 hour test was stopped after 2, because Matt's numbers were so high. The dr said he "blew high numbers before we even gave him the lactulose". So he's been diagnosed with SIBO, which is Small Intesting Bacterial Overgrowth. It's an overgrowth of bad bacteria in his small intestine that has been giving him the nausea, cramps, diarrhea, gas pains. 2 weeks of a GI specific antibiotic, and 1 month of probiotics. Hopefully with the antibiotic he'll start feeling better in a few days. It's something that can come back so obviously it's something that he'll live with. The dr said if it comes back (and "it could") that we'd do antibiotics/probiotics again, but if it came back a 3rd time he'd add dietary changes. We see the dr again in April. I think I'm going to ask about the diet then. I have my kid back! He was joking around, talking (I mean, REALLY talking to me)..he feels validated. That there really IS something going on and it's not "just me or in my head". Thank you again everyone for the positive energy and prayers!! They certainly helped!****
