Stephen

Last Wednesday I took Stephen back to the doctor. His tummy has been giving him trouble for a while now and when I called to ask if something was normal the nurse said it would be a good idea to go ahead and bring him in. So off to Gainesville we went. The doctor did some blood work and sent us home to finish up the other test. The blood work came back "OK" aka normal and the other testing should be done tonight and hopefully we will hear its normal tomorrow! The doctor also told us no dairy for 2 weeks. Bless his heart its pitiful. He use to love milk and that is all he wanted to drink. He never liked juice and so now instead of milk he gets juice. No cheese and he LOVED cheese. His favorite snack was cheese! It seems like EVERYthing has milk in it. We are watching labels very close these days. Stephen went to the grocery store with me this weekend and every time we turned around he saw something he wanted me to buy. I would check the labels and we would not be able to get it. He would say "dotter say me not hab dis" meaning Doctor say me not have this! So I guess he will have to stay at home next time I go to the grocery store. The boys had fun playing while waiting!



He got to pick his favorite color after getting blood drawn! Oh and he had lost 1 1/2 pounds in 2 weeks. We had taken out milk a few months back and things seemed to be better, but the last 2 weeks had been bad and he lost some weight. For a 3 year old a pound and a half is alot. He weighed in at 35 pounds at the doctor and this weekend I weighed him at home and he was 34 pounds so now its more like 2 1/2 pounds.
