Yesterday we went to the chiropractor. He adjusted me and Baby. I then laid on the spinal table for awhile. Ahh. It was fabulous. I felt so much better. Baby did not go through his fussy/colicky period last evening. We both are going to follow up weekly for a bit.
Baby did still have his gassy pain periods though. We had our pediatric GI appt early this morning. The doctor confirmed that Baby has a condition that I can't pronounce or spell but basically means he has a small sphincter. I'll spare you the details but the doctor opened it a bit. There was some stool and blood. Baby cried. I cried. I nearly passed out. The doctor assured us the blood was a great sign as it meant Baby didn't have this other, more serious, condition. We all survived. We came home. Baby slept most all the way.
I dropped Husband off at home so he could go into work. Then Baby and I went to the pharmacy to get his prescription (laxative). We are to do that twice a day and then go back in 2 weeks.
We napped together (nice) and then I woke up to Baby making a noise he's never made before. I just knew he had a messy diaper. I checked......and.....it was a POOP PARTY !!!!!!!!!!! I changed him. He went again. I changed him. He went again. We went through SIX diapers. I was laughing and crying and so happy. I've never been so happy to change diapers. Baby was not crying at all. He just laid there and smiled. He is now stretched out next to me, cooing, smiling and HAPPY !
Thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts. May there be many more messy diapers in my future! I promise not to complain.
