It's official Brody has the same intolerance that Bryson had. We are starting him on Elecare formula today, and hope that it helps quickly! He had his first "normal" doctors appointment today..it was his 2 month check up. He received three shots and was looked over by the doctor again. He is on pace to gain a pound per week for the last two weeks. He is now up to 9 pounds 8 ounces.Today the doctor noticed that his abdomen was very distended and hard. I have been noticing that also after he eats. She said we need to keep a close eye on that, because if it is happening when he hasn't eaten it could be bad. He has been extremely fussy (especially at night). On tuesday we went to have an ultrasoud of the kidney's done. I was very bummed because they wouldn't let me go back with him since I had Bryson with me. They placed a foley catheter in him, and started an iv. They then placed dye into the iv and watched the kidney excrete the dye to see if his kidneys were functioning correctly. They had the catheter in so the urine wouldn't relflex back up and block the view. This test came back normal. I meet with the nephrologist next monday to follow-up with the kidney function. We also meet with the cardiologist next week, so I will keep you updated on that. Until then we will be trying to keep him comfotable and hope for the best with this formula!
