Misty, I have been reading along for the past few days and was shocked when I read that he was in the hospital again. I am glad he is home now.
I hope you get some answers soon.
My thoughts and prayers are for you guys.

Mistey & DeansDad,
That was so scary. I'm so glad to hear your DS is home and doing well. Poor little guy, he's been through so much. My prayers for you all that he continues to get stronger with no repeated episodes and that you find an answer to all of this. God Bless.

Mistey, I am wondering about why the hospital did not want to report this to the Health Dept. What if it happened, say, to other kids that went to this Water Park and no one reported it? I think you may at least want to call the water park and ask:
- What were the chlorine levels that day, in the pools your DS was in? (they have records of this and are required to share this info)
- Has anyone else reported getting sick after visiting the Water Park?
Over time there has been a few cases where a strong bacteria was in the pool (I remember one case in a public pool in Atlanta a few years ago) and has killed several children and/or sickened many kids.

Rectal bleeding was the 1st symptom my daughter had of her peanut allergy...but nothing as severe as what your son has gone through...
my thoughts and prayers are with your son and your family.

Mistey and Deansdad, I just arrived back home after an overnight trip. I was thinking of you while I was gone. How is your son doing today? I'm sure you're very busy taking care of him, but let us know when you have a chance.

Just a thought as I am running through scenarios in my head. Did the Er or hosp docs ever do an abdominal ultra-sound or an MRI to rule out anything other than acute illness? Sometimes trauma can present itself in very mysterous ways.Not trying to scare anyone just curious. My thoughts are with you and your family and I hope that everything turns out well.
