I forgot to mention that my son, who was having trouble eating, is doing much better now. I did give him the zantac, as prescribed, because I could't stand to see him not eating his favorite foods. It seems that things are improving now and he can get off the Rx. I tried to be vigilant about keeping him away from things that could have chemicals on them, since medications like zantac and tagamet compete for detoxification pathways, and are actully quite dangerous for that reason. He's completely off the Rx today, and hopefully the gastroenteritis is gone and he won't need any further tests or medications. I'll keep the head of his bed elevated, and I'll have him spit into the tube for the secretor test today or tomorrow, to further improve things. I strongly suspect that he's a non-secretor.
I'm still doing pretty well compliance-wise. Milk is no longer calling my name after a few days of complete avoidance. I now equate milk, soy and corn with pain, suffering and agony. I didn't even have a muffin that I made for my family, because it had a little corn in the mix. I did make compliant pancakes to ease the cravings a bit. Hopefully I can make it out shopping today and pick up some sweet potatoes to make fries from. Carb cravings hit me pretty hard this time of year, so I have to be prepared.
I'm back to broccoli for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner, but need to make some greens. Maybe some peasant soup would hit the spot this time of year...
