The month to be thankful

Well, Zach's update isn't the best this month. He is continuing to lose weight, having pain, and vomiting. He has had a barium test done, lots of bloodwork and several doctor visits over the last few weeks. Good news is he doesn't have any obstructions, which they were worried about with all the vomiting. He is still no foods and we are waiting for him to completely clear up (diarrhea wise) before trying any. The allergist is trying to also figure out the least allergic food for us to try when we do food trials again.
On other news, he did have some bloodwork come back and the results were not that great. The blood test measuring the muscle enzyme CK came back elevated which means some type of muscle myopathy. We have to wait another week or so before knowing exactly what is going on so for now we are anxiously waiting. I think the realization that something else is going on has hit pretty hard for most of us. No matter how much you prepare, it is always a shocker to find out something is wrong with one of your children.
Good note though, it is November and that means Thanksgiving....We still have a lot to be thankful for, so we are counting our blessings.
