I haven't been on here much in the last year or so. I've been very busy with my daughter Camryn. She was born in April of last year. She was recently diagnosed with Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis. Which basically means she is allergic to most food. Heres pretty much what we've dealt with over the last year and the reason why I haven't fished even one time this year!! (Sorry for the long post) When she was born she didn't tolerate her formula. They had to change it before we even left the hospital. When she was about 2 weeks old they did a barium swallow and diagnosed her with severe reflux. They started her on Nutramigen formula and Prilosec. For her six week check up she weighed less than she did when she was born. She was admitted to the local hospital for failure to thrive. After 4 days and we were told to just let her eat until she was full. She went home on a Saturday afternoon. On Sunday evening she choked on her vomit, and turned blue on us. We rushed her to the Kansas University hospital. They admitted her there and we spent another week in the hospital. They did no test, they just thickened her formula, put her on Enfamil premature formula with double scoop for more calories. She did fairly well on the thickened formula, (as far as her reflux was concerned). She has always been wiggly, cranky, and unable to pass gas easily. We dealt with her crankiness, screaming, moaning and refluxing until she was 11 months old. Then she got a really bad stomach virus and was again admitted to the hospital and put her on IV fluids. She would vomit every time she ate anything and also had bad diarrhea. A few days later she was sent home. On the way home she vomited several times, and had two diarrhea diapers. (We live an hour from her doctor). Got home and by 8pm she was back to not keeping anything down, explosive diarrhea, her bottom turned red with blisters on it. We managed through the night pacing the floors, being up all night. We took her to the nearest ER. They don't admit pediatric patients, but started an IV to get fluids going, and sent us back to KU hospital by ambulance. They ran a lot of test and all same up negative. She started keeping food down, but acted like it hurt her to eat. The doctor thought that all of her vomiting had aggravated her reflux, so they put her on IV Zantac, and IV Nexium. The doctor agreed with me that something wasn't right with her, that the way she acted wasn't normal. We had to setup an appointment with Children's Mercy hospital to do a Scope to run biopsies. It took almost a month to get in for the appointment but eventually they got it done. After the scope they diagnosed her with Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis. They have recently changed her medicine again and we're not sure if it for the better yet or not. There is a hospital in Cincinnati, OH that has a specialty clinic for Eosinophilic disorders. We are currently working on getting an appointment there. KU hospital is going to see if they can help fund the trip for us. This has been the toughest year of our lives. Every time we think we have her figured out we just seem to hit another set back. Please pray for Camryn. Thank you!!
