Wow, a baby boy! Is your 4 yr old a boy too? It’s nice to see you back, m&ms…. sorry you have to be here though. We missed you, it had been quite a while. Last I remember you were pregnant and heading to the states. Glad you finally convinced hubby.
Have you checked with a doctor about your symptoms yet? Are you continuing probiotics religiously? If your child is having problems as well it might just be something you ate. Even though you’re not eating out, maybe it is something in the water that doesn’t agree with you.
EDS is a new one for me, I have never heard of that disorder. I will have to look it up now. Did you look into this possibility for you? Maybe your nephew’s doctor would be a good place to start. Wish I had something better for you. Nice to hear from you again!
My fellow South American traveler! Good to hear from you! Sorry to hear about your guts acting up, though I'll tell you, whenever I've traveled to remote places in Africa, South America, Middle East, whatever, I have gotten a few terrible bouts of diarrhea and pain. Sometimes there's been an explanation for them, sometimes not. Are you going to go the stool sample route again (how fun is THAT?)? How long are you going to be there this time? Maybe you should go see one of the natural healers in Bolivia - go out into the jungle and hang out for a while, HA!
CONGRATULATIONS on your new kidlet! Ah, it must be cute to have babies...
