FINALLY, AN ANSWER WITH WHAT IS GOING ON WITH DEQLANS TUMMY.
Last night , Nanna was looking after Deqlan when i went to adult instruction and when i came back he had the most shocking nappies we have ever seen.
So, Nanna suggested we get a sample to a lab asap cause we cant carry on with Deqlan not eating and being so bloated and diarreah which could lead to him becoming dehydrated. Our house doctor who saw Deqlan last week , when we thought it was a tummy bug, was kind enough to give me her cell number. So we arranged with her to get the sample in at Unitas last night which means we could hurry the process up of getting the results
We got a call this morning from our doc saying no bacteria or viruses found, but a parasite called Giardia Lambila - this parasite causes chaos in the small intestine, loss of appetite, lethargy, a very bloated tummy full of gas, nausea, diarreah, nausea, pale colour to stools - and there you go - everything Deqlan has had the past week.
Where does it come from? Could be from a swimming pool or day care centre when changing nappies.......mmm... .....one of the cons of being in a school with lots of other kids....so we have decided to take Deqlan out of swimming lessons..even when the pool is treated , a child could be a carrier and re introduce the parasite back into the water, and the cycle starts again. We cant afford for Deqlan to get this again and not eat for a week , so safer then sorry and we will try and do some specific things with Deqlan at home that the swimming teacher would have done. Such a pity as Deqlan LOVES swimming, but poor little guy cant battle like this anymore. We have alerted the school so that they can do something about the water so other kids dont get sick to.
Deqlan is now on anti parasite medication and hopefully has already started kicking in and bringing Deqlans appetite back to. The only thing he has wanted to eat the past few days in popcorn and his beloved 'Donalds" fries.....
Please continue to pray he feels lots better and we can get rid of this parasite for good!
God Bless, enjoy the evening
