He was in pain alllll last night. He was constipated and it must've been bad. Gave him some lactulose that one of the pediatrician's gave us. He fell asleep on the bathroom floor until about 3am, then finally went back to his own bed. After running some errands this morning, I brought home an enema pack that he texted me and asked for. Gave him a dose of Miralax. He finally started passing stuff, but he's still feeling awful. Made sure he took Lactaid with ANYTHING that he ate today (which wasn't much) just to be safe. Don't know if lactose is the problem, but since I can't seem to get him to NOT eat anything with dairy in it, I'm going to go ahead and proceed as if it IS the problem. Figured it can't hurt. Pushed another dose of Miralax in the afternooon. I guess I'll take him in to see the pediatrician tomorrow if he's not feeling better. He missed Thursday and Friday last week for the OPPOSITE problem! Consistently inconsistent, that's my guy. He's feeling overwhelmed by all the work he knows he's missing at school, even though he has plenty of time to do the work. Really puts a damper on his motivation to even try. He is so sick of this, as am I. On top of all this, I've got a cold that's got me feeling run down, and it seems as though easy child is coming down with something now, too -- low grade fever this afternoon. Phooey.
