My ex-wife called me yesterday and told me that my youngest son(4) had 4 "accident" with clear mucus and a few BM's with both blood&mucus, along with some urgency. She 1st went to the ER, not too much help there, they told her it's a virus,without doing ANY tests. Her step dad is a DR and had her get a stool sample and we should hear something Monday. She thinks it's hemmies, but I think he's either gonna have UC or Chroans. Is there better way to find out on a 4yr old other than stool sample? I'm lucky that at my DR's practice there is a pediatric GI. I'm just gonna keep my fingers crossed, but I'm getting ready for the worst.

nothin yet regarding a response?


It could be hemmies or a fissure. Did your wife take a look at your son to see if there's any changes?

Stool samples are a must! kids do come in contact with all sorts of stuff..hand to mouth. He should be put on probiotics for kids anyway, just to help with the floral balance of his digestive tract.

Keep us posted....there are many possibilities...but making sure the proper tests are done is optimal.

Well Q, she did say that she thought she seen a hemmi, but she wasn't 100%. Do you know of any probotics for kids?

sodbuster...curious...is your son taking any supplements or artificial sweeteners in any products? Sometimes that can cause gas or gastro upset.
Excess gas or constipation can exacerbate hemmies...kids are notorious for holding bms.

Any health food store will offer them.....he can also take yogurt with live bacteria..will be helpful.

No, he has no problems with his BM's and as for gas, he toots a lot and it cracks him up. I will tell her to try some yogurt.
