Feeling Better Today
Mom took me to the doctor yesterday, and of course while there my belly was soft. I didn't see my regular physician, but Mom does like the doctor we say also. He said he could still feel some stool in my bowels and to keep giving me MiraLax. He asked if I was always so quiet and still. Mom said no, that I just learned to walk and is usually all over the place, checking things out. He asked a lot of questions about my health and asked mom if she knew I had a very loud heart murmur. Mom said, yes that was normal for me. He told mom my symptoms could mean several different things, that with the many health issues I already have complicates things, from my thyroid acting up, stomach, heart, etc., etc.
So, he advised us to go home and if I wasn't feeling better in a few days to come back and they would run more tests.
That afternoon I drank some Pedisure and my stomach bloated up, swelled and got all tight again. I got clammy and sweaty a few times, similar to when I have had heart issues in the past. Mom's been so worried. Last night she just broke down after putting me to bed. She's been praying extra hard for me lately.
This morning, however, I woke up, ate some of my Barbie waffle, drank a cup of soy milk, later a cup of juice, but refused lunch. I've been more active, playing, walking around the apartment, laughing, waving at myself in the mirror and acting more myself. Mom thinks even my color looks better. We are hoping this is the end of my current round of whatever has been going on with my body. We are all worn out with worry and the stress of it all.
