    The Poops

    So the past few weeks have been HARD, hard for me, hard for Handsome, hard for my mom (she watches him during the day)... Poor Handsome has been one hard case when it comes to getting him to go poop. Not to mention all the nonstop stimming, yelling, crying, hitting, throwing himself into things/people, mouthing everything in site! Its just plain hard!

    When I called his DAN doctor on Monday and told her he still had NOT pooped a significant amount she was shocked. She said she has seen hard cases before, but not this hard. She told her nurse to tell me that he is just that backed up and has been struggling for so long with his poops that its going to take awhile to find the regimine to clean him out and then find the one to keep him regular. Right now this is what he is taking :

    Bio Energy C (buffered Vitamin C) 3 tsp daily 12,000 mg(yes I wrote those MGs correctly :) )

    Aloe Vera Juice 1/4 cup 2-3 times a day

    Magnesium Taurate 3 capsules daily

    And thats just for him to go poop, he is on several other supplements for other things as well.. Total in all = 10


    Its pretty funny to see us give him all these supplements all day long. As you can imagine he doesn't' know how to take pills yet, so we are putting most of his stuff in coconut yogurt, apple sauce or juice and if we can we mix it in his food he's eating. You definitly have to be creative when you have this many supplements to give and they don't know how to swallow pills yet :).

    So as of today, he has pooped a huge amount in the mornings the past two days, then during the day poops little bits all day long. The Aloe Juice was just added yesterday so we're praying it gets in his system more by tomorrow and that we see more stools.

    BUT we have seen some progress too :) little by little more correct frazes in sentences, like " Mommy that was a wonderful book to read" WHAT I nearly jumped off my bed!!! or "Here Mommy kiss Rudy goodnight too" that one melted my heart (Rudy is the dinosaur from Ice Age 3) I could go on :)

    School starts on August 10th and I was hoping to have the worst part of this done before he started school as its interfered with our potty training alot :(... He's starting kindergarten and a brand new school, with new teachers and its all day long. This kind of thing normally does not sit well with Handsome, so I am trying to get in touch with his teacher to schedule a face to face meeting with her before school starts. So far its proving to be VERY difficult.

    So in the end, keep praying for poop and for a smooth transition to his new school.

    Much Love,

    And the Poop watch continues

    WOW talk about some stubborn stools :) LOL!

    Yes we are still on a poop watch(thanks for the post title idea Di :) ) Same poop different day. I wish I could say he is pooping up a storm but, sadly he isn't.

    I had a long talk with his DAN doctors office tonight and she is equally shocked at how much he is on and is still not having explosive poops. So as of tonight we have added yet another thing to his regimine :) GEE how am I going to slip this one in? He's already taking 10 things a day and most are capsules, which sadly he does not know how to take them yet so I have to put them in his drinks foods, ect :).

    Starting tomorrow he will also take Aloe Very Juice 1/2 cup 2-3 times a day.... Serioulsy friends... Pray that this little boy poops... his yeast die of is just getting worse and its not coming out.

    BUT I will say, there are some good things I am noticing tonight. Just now while putting him to bed, he again (last nite as well) asked me to kiss Rudy goodnite as well ( his dinosaur from ICE Aget 3) He has NEVER asked me to do that before, AND tonight when I asked him for my nightly hug, he actually hugged me!!! He squeezed me with his arms and he has NEVER done that!!! It was wonderful!!!!

    Also, I am including a link to a wonderful article posted by a mom of a little girl with autism, in the Huffington Post. Wonderful article, please read it.... this is truely what you go through when first diagnosed. Your told, there is not treatment and all this stuff is bogus, YET its working...hmmmmm. anyway, I won't get on my soap box tonight :) Here is the link, check it out please :) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/amanda-copeland/the-price-of-intervention_b_244064.html

    So as you can tell my emotions are frazzled today, so sorry my post won't be to happy and sunshining tonight.

    I knew that when we put Handsome on the Diflucan it would be a VERY DIFFICULT few weeks.... but in my mind I envisioned Handsome being able to poop all the yucky yeast die off out, and as of today, he is still only pooping very little.

    To be honest right now I feel badly that he is going through this, he is having MAJOR behavioral issues and stimming constantly all day long, spinning and flapping his hands and screaming and pushing its just all out bad. YET I know that getting rid of the bad stuff is not a fun process..... I'm just very emotional about it all. What will happen if he doesn't start to poop it all out?

    Anyway, I"m suppose to call his DAN doctor again tomorrow afternoon if we have not seen a change. Please will you pray that we see a change in his poop, as wierd as that sounds.

    Please understand, in no way am I giving up.. just being honest about my worries in what is going on.

    Thanks for everything!

    Much love,


    I know many of my readers already follow Stellans blog, but if you don't please visit her blog http://www.mycharmingkids.net/ and be on your knees in prayer for this sweet baby boy. He is not doing well!

    I will be posting our regular blog of updates on Handsome a little later.

    Till then and always, please pray! Pray for the doctors guidance, pray for peace for his family.... PRAY!
