So, we're going to lay off the MiraLax tonight and then maybe give it to him tomorrow night, depending on what kind of day he has at school.
I requested copies of the x-rays which I thought would be fun. When I went to the imaging desk she was certain Connor must have eaten something and that's why I wanted them, which made me laugh. That would actually be much more of an exciting picture, if there was a paperclip or something on here :) Okay not 'exciting' necessarily, but at least you'd be able to understanding something on the x-ray that way.
This is the image from last Tuesday when we first went in. I've attempted to draw where his colon is, and the fact that it's really gray and dense, means it's full. No dark spots which would mean air or gas.
This one was after the enemas, having seen this one helped me 'see' the first picture a little better. You can see more pockets of air throughout the colon, probably easiest to see right under his ribs. Then in the lower portion I've outlined you can see the dark area expand and widen, that's a potential area for concern as to why the colon is so enlarged there.
We feel really good about getting him to a specialist, now we just hope we can figure this out sooner rather than later.
