Braedyn is sick – Updates

Friday, May 4, 2007 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm 10 comments

What a terrible past 7 days it has been. We brought Braedyn back to the Dr’s 3 days after the 1st visit because the diahorrea hasn’t improved, and also due to the fact that we wanted the Dr to see him before the 2 day extended Labour Day break.

The Dr took Braedyn off his infant formula replacing it with a lactose-free formula (very kind of him to give us 2 sample cans of Similac so we didn’t have to worry about getting some ourselves). He also prescribed a cream for Braedyn’s sore hind quarters which is due to his body not being able to absorb the lactose, resulting in the leftover lactose (lactic acid perhaps….it has been along time I picked up my Biology text) burning his genital area after each passing.

It was only today that the diahorrea improved significantly with no mid-night nappy changes required. Daddykhong has been a dream the past 7 days, automatically waking up to sniff at Brae’s backside every 2 hours or so (very much like a dog!) and then proceeding to change the nappy, apply cream, etc.. if required. He keeps count of the changes which averaged 9 a day. (daddykhong: it was getting so routine I felt like a robot)

However, Braedyn now has a hoarse voice (very husky and extremely sexy) from his crying. Good in a way because it means his cries are no longer ear-splitting. He’s back on his normal food today after days of drinking formula and nibbling on bread and whatever we were eating.

Shayanne has been a joy the past week, smiling every once in a while and cooing to herself whenever kor-kor has a changing session. She’s growing up fast.

    Hasn’t he been drinking regular formula for a long time? It is odd that the symptoms just came abruptly. Thankfully there is lactose-free formula.
    He was on soy-based formula for the 1st 6 months as a supplement to breast milk. Since then he has been on regular formula. Oh ya, forgot to add that the infection weakened his intestinal lining (which resulted in slightly bloody stools) so that’s why the lactose affected him.

    Oh Gosh, thank goodness he is ok now. I dread it when kids have diarrhoea. It’s bad enough for us adults. Daddykhong is also a great help, i.e. The Wonderful Modern Daddy
