|thats terrible, but I have no idea what it could be, give him lots of hugs and your sister and your nefew will be in my thoughts, I really hope he gets better soon, I hate to see little kids sick, its heart breaking
just wondering what that cf thing you mentioned is? Just curious, I dont think ive ever heard of it
|they are running so many tests on the poor little guy. They don't think that it is cf because his lungs are perfect. Oh I forgot to mention that he has this rash all over his back. My sister thought that it was a milk allergy but she was wrong. It's her third son so she is beating herself up that she didn't take him to the doctors earlier.|
|i am by far no expert in cf but I have read that a child may not have signs in the lungs at first but in the digestive tract or other areas. The lungs are primarily affected but it may not show up. A common symptom is thick, heavy, sticky mucus, salty sweat, and there stool is different. The first sign is lack of weight gain in
infants. Here is an article I found. Perhaps you have seen it.
did the baby a specialist or was it just a general pediatrician??? It sound like they are trying to get to the bottom of what is happening. I am so sorry. I can't imagine how hard it would be seeing a 16 week old still be only 8 pounds.
