GI Specialist

Our sweet PJ survived a week of rotavirus hell (as did we, barely), but we still had to keep our GI appointment for her on-going tummy issues, unrelated to rota. Little Toot did well at the appointment and we now have a term for her issue.  Polly is a "withholder" and when she goes stiff she is not trying to push her poop out, but hold it in. This is rare in babies this young, so there is still a chance that she may have something more serious going on (celiac disease) but Dr. Patel wants to wait 6 months and see if we can fix the withholding problem, and make pooping not so traumatic for her and us! So, the plan is an ADULT ex-lax every day at noon. I still cannot believe we are giving this 20 pound baby an adult laxative,,,,,,but we are.  Trusting the specialist on this one!
