We had an awesome weekend. We finally got to go out of town for the weekend. It was so great to see friends from both high school and college and to see all my family. We went to Kingwood for our good friends surprise 30th birthday party and it was such an great reunion of old friends. My uncle brought my grandma to Kingwood to meet Carson for the first time, which was another very special moment. It was so great to not have to think of all the doctors and medical stuff and just get to enjoy the weekend with people that I love.
Today we went to the Pediatric GI doctor for the blood in Carson's stools. He was wonderful if anyone is ever needing a GI doctor. After listening to me explain what was going on and doing an exam he said it was one of two things, both minor. YAY, for something final being minor. One is that it still could be an allergy of some sort, but it would be really minor since he isn't really having any other major symptoms. They really don't have anyway of knowing what it is and I could try a allergy free milk, but he doesn't really know if it will help and would rather him get the breast milk. Since being off of dairy wasn't helping he said I could enjoy it again...YAY again. Now he did say if he gets worse when I get back on it to get off of it again. The Second thing that could be causing it had some big fancy name (as he put it) but it basically means large lymph nodes, small hole. Babies have large lymph nodes as their body develops it immune system and their intestines are really small so the bowel can rub up against them and cause the streaking of blood. He said as long as the blood is random, doesn't get worse, and Carson seems fine we just keep doing what we are doing. The Dr. believes that either scenario will be out grown around 6 months. I really hope this is true. Praise for good news today. Ha, For now, I am going to ignore the fact that he still has blood in the stools on occasion and just be thankful that it isn't anything major.
Many of you have been asking about supporting the Buddy Walk in Carson's name. One way to do it is to order something from www.pamperedchef.biz/dhawks and enter Buddy Walk as the Organization and a percentage will be donated to the Buddy Walk or you can donate online at https://bos.etapestry.com/fundraiser/DownSyndromeGuildofDallas/BuddyWalk2011/individual.do?participationRef=607.0.364785124. If any of you happen to be in the area we would love for you to join us for the walk on November 13.
As always thanks for all the love and prayers.
