Actually I need to start with a warning that this post is about bodily functions, so if you're not interested, DON'T READ IT!!
Ok so the good news is that Megan's bloodwork all came back normal -- no celiac's disease, no thyroid conditions, and I can't remember what else they tested for. Those were the big 2 that I was curious about.
Also good news, since we've had Megan on the Miralax (4 tsp. a day! for the past almost 2 weeks) she has started to use the actual toilet again. Apparently as things have softened up she has overcome some of her fear. We still have the occasional accident but for the most part, we are headed in the right direction. Whew!! The doctor has asked me to keep her on the Miralax for another 2 weeks and then we have a follow-up appointment to talk about our continuing strategy.
I'm glad but also wondering why her system is this way? Is it purely diet? Is there something else there that makes her sluggish? I'm not sure what our next plan of action will be but for now we're celebrating the little triumphs! Which at this point, are big triumphs!!
