And now the top end
After 6 weeks of unexplained loose bowels, now Micah gave back his dinner through the top end. And at the risk of too much detail, I will share anyway so there's your warning :)
Micah threw up about 10-15min afdter eating, but it was all exactly as it had gone in. Completely unprocessed. Nothing added, just as if his food had spilled rather than being swallowed and brought back up.
We callwd the on-call pediatrician and he's not concerned at all, just says to keep him hydrated. He suggests pedialyte and just a little at a time so he doesn't aspirate. Clearly he doesn't know Micah because he aspirates just tiny bits of meds. We are glad he's not concerned, though since we were considering a trip to the ER thinking he could have a blockage or something with all the loose bowels and now no BM's in 24 hrs and puking instead.
We see the GI on Tuesday and I sure hope he has some ideas!
