Tomorrow we get to go to the pediatrician for my son’s stomach issues. Our family dr had said they weren’t going to refer him until they got a stool sample results but apparently he went ahead and did it. I am so glad because they called and got him in very fast. They actually wanted us to come in that day but I live an hour away. I am a little nervous. I don’t know what to expect as far as what she will think is going on. But my poor boy has had diarrhea every day for 5 days now. It seems to be worse than ever. I am really leaning towards gluten being the culprit. The more I read on it the more his symptoms sound like it, so I am armed with questions. I hope she has some answers. My poor boy has a fear of doctors. When he was 7 months old he got a staph infection that resulted in a huge abscess. Bigger than anyone around had ever seen. But my dr kept telling me it was doing what it was supposed to. Until I took him in again and the dr was even a little freaked out. He told me afterwards he was septic and was very sick. We rushed to the hospital and had emergency surgery. It was a rough week and he was in and out of the hospital for the infection. After that he was terrified of any building that looked like a medical office for at least a year and a half. He recently started getting better but I always try to prepare him because going to a dr he hasn’t seen in 2 years might be scary. I am a bit anxious myself. I just hope this means we are on the way to figuring this out.
