Collecting samples and visits to the Doctor

We are now on day 6 of Elijah's poo problems. I didn't post about it previously as the last time I posted, I thought nothing of it and the computer hasn't been available for me to use for the past few days due to Daddy's study commitments.

To let you know what's happening, Elijah has been pooing constantly. It's not a watery gastro poo, but is mucus-streaked, which is cause for calling the Doctor. We've been to one appointment (on Friday) and were given a little plastic bottle with which to collect a sample. Lovely. That has now been taken to pathology and we have another appointment this afternoon.

At first, theories being bandied about were that it was related to his solid food (he has now been off solids except for the occasional meal of rice cereal since it began, so it can't be that), that it was due to something in my diet (again, not possible because of the continuation of the problem) and that it is due to the virus we have all got (although none of the grown-ups in this house have any symptoms apart from throat and sinus issues).

Hopefully we'll get an answer soon.

I hope everything is alright! Keep us updated for sure.

Tell Elijah that I hope he feels better soon!
