Hello Falloween...

Well Hello There Falloween :)
Asa has lost 6 pounds in the last 3 weeks. Between pneumonia and having EXTREME abdominal pain last week he has missed 2 full weeks of school.
Let's start with Tuesday last week. Asa had a follow up Audiology appointment followed by a ENT appointment to see about his Conductive Hearing Loss in his right ear. This all started a year ago at his 4 year wellness check and the standard hearing test, then tubes in February and now his 3rd hearing test - SAME RESULTS. We are getting fitted for a hearing aid on the 26th. We are going to try it for a month and see if he has any significant improvement. If it's going to be a complete battle I'm not sure if it will be worth it, but if it helps of course we'll fight it.
So we missed school Tuesday because of his appointments. Then Wednesday he woke up with a belly ache (me too and a fever) so we lay in bed all day watching TV. Thursday he was no better and crying out in pain, not good, went to docs. They chalked it up to the antibiotics really wreaking havoc on his belly. Friday not better and still crying out in pain, back to docs for abdominal xrays. Yup, things were all backed up! Even though he'd been pooping regularly - poor guy. After some Miralax and all those foods that help finally Saturday we had some relieve.... Hopefully in the future he won't be on two antibiotics at the same time!
