How scary Martie! Have you tried adding healthy high fat foods like almonds, avocado, olive oil etc. to his diet? I will be praying for you!

Joey's appointment went well yesterday. I didn't get to go b/c Brian Patrick is sick (that's another post) but he said the doc was very nice and thorough. Our ped ran the blood tests for thyroid, food allergies, as well as diabetes, celiac, chrones, and anything else they could think of, as well as the normal stuff. But nothing comes up. So this doctor is going to scope him on 2/15 to see what is going on in there and take some biopsies. He said that will at least definitely rule out the allergies, celiac, and chrones. Personally I'll feel better once someone has seen his innards and can tell me there is nothing serious in there.

When this started, no he wasn't eating enough b/c he felt so bad. But we changed his diet, solved the reflux, and manage the lactose intolerance. So, at the very least, he should be maintaining, if not gaining, his weight. That isn't happening. If anything, it seems he is losing weight faster. :(

Thanks for all the prayers and positive thoughts, Ladies, I appreciate them. :)
