Blood in Stool

On Wednesday, Lucas started to sleep more than normal during the day. On Thursday, he started to have diarrhea every 30 to 90 minites. Some of the diapers were filled with black stool which reminded us of back in June when Lucas had a substantial amount of blood in his stool. On Friday, we brought 2 stool samples to PCH for testing. Both came back as positive for blood in the stool. Poor baby boy. Over the weekend, we made some more stool samples for further testing. We should have the more detailed results by Friday. Today, we have an appointment with our GI and the hematologist doctor to get some answers. This could be a big issue or it could be a stomach virus, bacteria, or infection.

Through this all, Lucas has been in good spirits and happy when he’s awake. Pretty amazing.
