Abbey's wheat trial didn't go well and we are back to square one all over again. On Wednesday we fed her 1 teaspoon of vitabrits (99% wheat 1% salt) at 8am. By 9am she started getting grumpy and doing lots of wet burps. Between 9.30 and 10.30 she started having off and on screaming fits, or she would lay on the floor moaning in obvious pain. Between 10.30 and 11.30 she screamed hysterically and basically non stop. There was nothing i could do to calm her. She kept curling herself up in a ball or throwing herself backward. She didn't want me to hold her or to put her down. I was very thankful that by 11.30am she exhausted herself and fell asleep. When she woke up she had stopped all the screaming but was still totally miserable and still did lots of crying. On Thursday we decided that after such a horrible reaction we wouldn't give her anymore wheat and by that afternoon she was back to being her happy self again. She still isn't totally better yet and now 3 days later she is still doing explosive runny poos and is still spitting up lots. She has also lost her appetite. Yesterday throughout the day i couldn't even manage to get 2 bottles into her. She caught up a little bit before she went to sleep by drinking 2 bottles in a row and then 2 over night but that is still not even 6 bottles in a 24 hour period. She usually has 9. Hopefully she is feeling better soon.
We are going to try apple next and start extremely slow. When she is over her wheat reaction completely we will start by giving her only the tip of a teaspoon for 3 days, then quarter of a teaspoon for 3 days, then half a teaspoon for 3 days ect. We are hoping that by starting so slow we can get her stomach used to it and have a least one food that she can eat.
Abbey's dietitian is also going to try get us another appointment with the immunologist at PMH as soon as possible. She wants to do a trail with Abbey there so they can see what happens and run tests on her while she is reacting and see what is happening to her body. She is also trying to get us in to see a gastroenterologist (GI). They will probably do some studies on her digestive system and see if there is anything wrong there. Hopefully this will get us some answers to what is going on with her.
Other then all the negatives of the last few days, we had a really fun day yesterday with the kids. Reuben was doing some work at a farm and i brought the kids there so they could see him using an excavator and go for a ride on a pony. They fully enjoyed themselves and Connor was right at home. He is such an animal lover and really enjoys big open spaces where he can roam free and get filthy dirty. I think we need to get a bigger block and some animals!
