A very long week...



Monday we went and saw the new doctor for Sam. I wasn't overly impressed but I will give her the benefit of the doubt until the next time we see her, if she still doens't know what to do by then then we will have to figure something else out. She did an abdominal x-ray and it showed that his belly was full of air. I am not quite sure what that means, and if that could be a part of what is causing some pain. She mentioned things like a stricture in his small intestines and then some type of absorbive thing. It stinks when no one can figure out why your child is suffering. He had several times this week where he actually physically cried when he was saying his belly hurt He weighed 29lb 8oz and was 37.5 inches tall!! He is really getting big.
Tuesday we went and saw a bunch of houses, in an effort to try to find something we can call home. No such luck yet. I worked tuesday night and it was an exhausting night. I came home wednesday and was unable to take a nap all day and then we went to Matt's parents for his grandmother's birthday.
Thursday we went in to Children's with Sophia to see the GI doctor. He was very happy with her weight and wants to keep on doig what we are doing. She is now on the growth chart around the 5th percentile or so. She is 19lb 10.5oz. So we will go back in two months, and if she has continued to grow well then we will start weaning her from the appetite stimulant at that time.

It is frustrating. I hope you get some answers soon. Poor little man. Poor you.

Thinking of you all.
