I try to get Eli a Giraffe everytime we go to Seattle Childrens Hospital. Here is today's new friend:
Well....Eli's so full of poop his eyes are brown. Sorry - just a silly thing my Momma used to say.....and I couldn't resist :)
Today, after a visit with Dr. Wahbeh, the GI Doctor at Seattle Children's Hospital....it was decided that Eli needs a colon cleanse. Nice.
Cerebral Palsy wreaks havoc on your muscles and their movement. We knew that. Turns out one of the muscles it can affect is the ol' Sphincter muscle! Plus, he's just not fully getting rid of his "junk" and he needs a little help.
So, we begin a regimen of Milk of Magnesia, Miralax, and Suppositories. I'll be sure to keep ya'll posted about that! I'm sure you can't wait to know more about Eli's bowel movements! Let's just hope it solves the problems we are wanting it to solve: to calm him down, take away his discomfort during feeds, help him be in a better mood during the day, and to sleep through the night so he can get his whole night feed.
Let's hope we are finally on the path to wellness for Eli!
After a beautiful sunny day in Seattle, with the temp at the top of Snoqualmie Pass being 51 degrees....we come home to a socked-in valley....frozen fog....30 degrees...and this...
God's beauty is so amazing!
God just thinks of everything, doesn't He?
