Mommy question about a sick kiddo. Any nurses or Dr's here I'd appreciate your input.
So about 6 weeks ago my middle dd came down with the puke flu. Started as the cold/flu kind and then went into the pukey flu. It lasted about 5 days. All 3 of them got it including me. Everything was okay for a week, then we got round 2. This time the lower region was involved too. That last a few days. Again all was fine. However, my middle dd can't seem to get rid of it completely. She seems fine, then a smell makes her nauseous, she pukes and then ends up in the bathroom for 30 minutes or so, takes her an hour or two to recover and then she's hungry again. It always happens when she eats. This is happening about every 4 to 5 days. I have no idea what the issue is. The last time we saw the Dr. He said it can take 10-12 days for this gastro virus to be completely gone and for your system to return to normal. (That was 2 weeks ago) But this for her won't go away.
It happened again last night after her gym meet. She was very weak at her meet and had the worst meet ever. She looked lethargic, like her muscles wouldn't work. I called the Dr. A bit ago and said I think she need to be seen. The Dr. Called me back and said wait another week or so and watch it. Well, this is going on week 6 and I think she may need some blood work done. Not a week or so from now. This isn't normal.
She was diagnosed at 3 with borderline type 1 diabetes, but it seemed to fix itself. Is it possible that's what we are seeing? Has anyone else ever come across this?
