In any case, Bodie seems to be doing well. They still don't know what's causing the blood in his stools (although that seems to have abated at the moment, thankfully), and he is definitely less interested in eating and has lost weight (clearly it's all inter-related, but they don't know the cause). One theory is that he has an intestinal bug (should get cultures back in a couple of days to prove/disprove that); another theory is that he has a milk protein allergy (if he's still having problems in a few days, they'll probably have me try cutting dairy out of my diet and see if that helps). Or it may be something else that just resolves on its own. In any case, our stay shouldn't be more than a few days hopefully! They just have to get him back to full feeds and gaining weight.
Thank you so much for your prayers not just for Bodie, but for entire family. Truly, they have meant so much and made such a difference! Please keep them coming. I will update once we know anything more.
