Thanks so much for taking the time to give us an update Mistey. I sure hope this is it, and he has an uneventful recovery from this point on. You all must be exhausted.

I'm so glad he's doing better and home again. It sounds like you are getting good quality care now. You will continue to be in my thoughts. I've been turning on the computer a lot more than I normally do in order to check what's happening. Hopefully soon you will have an answer what's going on, and in the meantime, may your dear DS continue to do well.

I am thinking of you and your DS. I must have missed, how old is he?
I was in tears reading what happened. I wish I had some ideas but I can't add anything.
Please keep us updated. We are praying for your DS and a quick and full recovery! HUGS

I hope you didn't have to take him back to the same hospital.

Thank you for giving us the update. You've been in our prayers, and I know I've come to the computer to check the board several times this weekend just to see if he's home from the hospital--and to see if there's an answer.
All the best in finding one!

Just finished reading all the posts. Mistey and Deansdad my heart goes out to you. It is one thing knowing what is going on and dealing with it but it is another not knowing anything. I pray they soon have an answer for you.
My family has been praying for your son. So sad. Sounds like he is a brave little guy though.....

Thank you all so much. We continually pray that the worst is over now and we never have to go through anything like this ever again with him.
He has always been such a strong little boy. This time has really affected him emotionally, though. But this is my area of expertise, so hopefully I can pull him out of it. It just breaks your heart to see them in pain, whether it be physically or emotionally.
So now we're taking it day by day. Almost 24 hours since we've been in the hospital. Deep breath in, deep breath out.
But once again, I thank you all for being so supportive.

I think the unnerving thing is not knowing what caused it. You are getting differing opinions about whether it was an allergic reaction or something else. If it was an allergic reaction, you would want to know what to avoid....whereas if it was something else then there is nothing you need to do or not do.
Here is a thought....what about stool culturing everyone in your house? Then if one of you has shigella or salmonella then that would make it likely that is what your ds has. What do you think? Salmonella and shigella can be present in stool without symptoms. Maybe if your ds has it by now he has passed it to someone else in the family and they are carrying it.
