Went to the pediatrician yesterday for Alvin's followup to check his weight.

He ~ lost ~ weight. Ugh. We had added rice cereal to his bottles, put him on a higher calorie formula, gave him rice crackers, tried every baby food we could think of. and he LOST weight.

So, they took some blood. (Wonderful, taking a 9 month old to get bloodwork done). They are going to run a CBC, and a chem panel. Which is going to include his pancreas, his thyroid and some liver tests. We are also being refferred out to a pediatric gastroenterologist, and an endochronologist. Wonderul.

The pediatrician wants to rule out a hyperthyroidism and cystic fibrosis. HOLY CRAP! Cystic Fibrosis. Ugh..... She is also worried about something called pyloric stenosis. Though, she says that we would have known long ago if he had that. Also being tossed around is Hirschsprung's Disease.

Grr. I just want to know what, if anything, is actually wrong with him.
