The boo is that my baby (8 month old son) has had a tummy bug since Friday.  So far, mostly just diarrhea and little vomiting, which is easier to manage, but I still feel so bad for the little guy.  He's been in an amazingly good mood, though!  For solids, we're just giving him yogurt (thank goodness he likes it) for the probiotics.  We tried some soy formula last night in place of his regular formula, but he seems to be sensitive to it as he vomited after taking it and then had a really tough night.  He's held down a mix of formula and pedialyte today just fine.  Luckily, I seem to be escaping it, and am keeping my fingers crossed that much luck holds.
The yay is that I'll finish my Rx of Asacol today and start Apriso tomorrow!  Please cross your fingers for me that it works! :)  I'm looking forward to just taking meds in the morning.
