Some "Bathroom" Talk

Today Jack had to have a G.I. test done. Jack has some serious (I am gonna say THAT word) poop issues. We just can't get him to go. It is pretty much a control issue. Shocking, right? Jack have control issues? Nooo! heh heh heh

Anyway, due to the fact that he doesn't "go" often he has very little appetite which has bumped him off the growth chart . . . on the smaller end. He is two years old and weighs only 24 pounds. So, after much consideration and months of the power struggle to make him "go" we decided to take him to a G.I. specialist who suggested this test to locate any potential structural abnormalities. The test came back normal which was a relief, but now we know it is a power-issue for Jack.

It broke my heart to see him in this little hospital gown so afraid. Poor guy! The test was quick and fairly painless, but I made sure to give him lots of hugs and kisses the rest of the day.

We have a similar issue with our now 5 year old. On the doctor's advice we give him a dose of Miralax a day and that has helped. Maybe if it is loose enough Jack won't have a choice but to go? I don't know but thought I would tell you in case it helps. Just don't buy the Walmart generic Miralax- it's nasty. Stick with the name brand in this case.
