~~As I mentioned in the last post, Savannah has been having digestion problems. Without getting too graphic, she's been having spells of hard, hard vomiting several times a day, even if there's nothing left to throw up. At times I've been afraid that she might pass out. They come without warning; sometimes after she eats but just randomly other times. The strange thing is that once she's finished she's fine and off playing.
~~This has been going on for about a month now. I took her in on April 8th and she went on antibiotics. That didn't help at all. I took her in Friday and was given some medicine to calm her stomach but it really hasn't seemed to work.
~~Savannah has a history of food allergies. We had the most difficult first few months after she was born. We couldn't figure out what was wrong. It's a very long story but we did eventually learn that she's allergic to milk proteins which is pretty rare. (And she was actually getting them through me!) It's not the dairy that she's allergic to but the proteins in dairy such as casein and whey. The bad thing is that those proteins are in many, many food products.
~~When Savannah turned two she really seemed to be outgrowing her allergy. We were able to introduce small amounts of dairy products into her diet. She just turned 3 last month and we had gotten to the point of not having to worry too much about what she ate.
~~Now I don't know what to think. I'm a big ball of nerves and worries. I can't stand to see her have these spasming fits. She just now has vomited about 5 times in 20 minutes.
~~That's a whole lot more than I would normally share and probably something that you didn't want to read but I'm asking for prayers for her. I would really like to find out what's going on and what I can do to help her.
I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed.
