After talking to our Pediatrician, she contacted an Infectious Disease specialist at the Marshfield Clinic and he recommended we keep Allie out of the hospital due to many other virus and bacterial bugs she could pick up with a suppressed immune system. So, our new plan is this: Allie is seeing our Pediatrician today at 11:45. She will get fully evaluated and after the exam, she will get chest X-rays to rule out phenoma and then she will get extensive blood work done to check for any bacterial infections, etc. (According to the infectious disease specialist, it does happen that pseudomous bacteria shows up in stool but it's not a big problem) I am hoping we get some results quickly because I'm very nervous about all of this. On the outside, Allie seems to be doing great and playing like usual, unfortunately, all to often with children who have GI issues, there is more going on inside than we know. So, I'm anxious to get Allie to the doctor and get everything checked out so we can treat what is needed and continue on to get her healthy.
I will update later today with what we find out. Please keep Allie in your prayers that everything checks out okay and all test results are in our favor.
