Follow-up

So, I went off milk for five days, and Lego only seemed to get worse. I racked my brain for what I was eating more of during those five days, and I realized that because of my birthday, I had eaten much more chocolate during those days than I usually do.

Even though it hadn’t been a week yet, I went back on milk and off chocolate. Each day that followed was better than the last. Lego essentially stopped spitting up altogether. He still does once in a while, but it’s not anything like what he had been doing. A week after going off chocolate, the diarrhea stopped too.

The clincher was on Monday. Sunday night I had a s’more and a chocolate-covered caramel cookie, the first chocolate I’d eaten in ten days. Monday, Lego was spitting up a lot and very fussy. Today, he has diarrhea again.

I had hoped that if it was chocolate, I would be able to eat very small amounts without making him sick. Looks like I won’t be that lucky.

Hm. I wonder what carob brownies taste like.

    I am very sad for you, nay, mortified, and hope that in some small way, you’ll find life is still worth living.

    Oh, sad. When you’re able to eat chocolate again, we’ll have to have a chocolate party. Until then, perhaps some cherry turnovers and sugar cookies would help ease the pain.

    What do carob brownies taste like? Like bitter death.

    Oh no! I was hoping it wouldn’t be chocolate!!

    Hmm… positive side… um… it’ll be easier to loose the baby weight?

    Sorry, Brinestone. Glad you figured out what it was, though.

    Poor Briney! I’ll pray for you.

    Good luck Brinestone. I’m so sorry that Lego doesn’t work well with chocolate. I’m glad that you figured out what was wrong, though.
