My 16yo son has been really sick for about three 4-6 weeks with abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. He had no appetite and lost 35 pounds in the last 2 months, 5 of those pounds he lost just this week. He is a big guy(6'2) so he had a little to work with..thank goodness. Every test, blood,stool and diagnostic, they have performed on him has been negative. Well, he woke up yesterday and said "I'm hungry". That was music to my ears, because all I have heard was "I'm not hungry", "I'm full" after only a few bites, and "I'm nauseous".
So, what was this mysterious illness? I wish I knew. If I had to guess I would say it had to be some sort of virus. I don't think we know what all kind of "bugs" are out there. It's really scary!
He was able to go back to school today after missing the last 7 school days. I just pray he can make it through today without any problems and then I'll consider him out of the woods.
