The face of a boy who is getting more tests done. 😕
He is now on modified cyclosporine (an immunosuppressant) as well as the Budesonide.
Starting yesterday out of the blue is now frantically trying to eat his own feces (the old hard ones I haven't gotten around fo picking up yet). He is also gassy and losing weight and is still having a lot of BM during the day. He's also woken me up in the middle of the night a few times bc he needs to go out.
All of these are signs of EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency). I emailed his IMS and she said its very low on her list but it doesn't hurt to rule out.
It's luckily a very simple blood test that will also test his folate and B12 levels so he's coming in to work with me tomorrow for that.
“Mom was home with us for 11 days! She was so annoying and coughed all of the time, but I admit I missed her, and her coughing, today when she went back to work.” 😉 Ahh Lily Mom missed you too! Happy #yellowdiscouttuesday
