GI Stuff

So, we saw Mia's GI surgeon yesterday. Her anus has narrowed, so we are now going to start doing some dilations again to stretch her anus to the proper size. This wasn't a fun task when we did it before, so I'm not looking forward to doing it again. He also was concerned that she might be constipated, so we had an xray done for that. I just spoke with him on the phone this morning and she is constipated, so we are going to start her on some miralax and see if we can't get her to have more regular bowel movements with the help of the miralax. This is actually really good news, I know you don't want to hear that your child is constipated, but if this is what it takes to get her to have regular bowel movements, we are so hopeful. Please pray with us that this would be the answer and that things would start to improve.

God answers prayers in strange but wonderful ways! Constipation is good! My only concern is that she may not be drinking enough fluids. That can cause constipation as well.
have a wonderful day and give the kids a hiug and kiss from us.
