Update on Newborn Zach

Zach still has the vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain and we had to take him in again today because he started to also get mucous in his diarrhea that was looking like it could be blood as well.  The pediatrician thinks now that it may not be a virus since it has been 7 days and things are getting worse.  She said it could be a lot of things, one could be C-diff from all the antibiotics I was on for the last few months of my pregnancy, so they are testing his stool for that.

Another possibility she is checking out is to see if he may be allergic to milk.  I was unable to breastfeed with him at the hospital and gave up since the specialist thought I would be unable to produce enough milk even if I got them working because of my hormonal imbalance.  Zach has been on formula and he may be allergic now, so the pediatrician put him on a new formula that is hypoallergenic to see what happens.  I'm thinking of trying to re-lactate to give Zach at least some of my breast milk, even though I may not be able to produce enough.  We will see what happens soon.

So keep the prayers coming.......we will find out soon what is wrong with my baby!
