Update on my daughter

HI Doc,

YOu asked to be kept updated so just informing you of the latest with our daughter.

Dr Kriel has diagnosed her as having an IgG Antibody difficiency in subclass 3. Sure you will know more what that means that I do.

Dr did explain to me what it means and basically there is nothing much we can do to boost these counts and she will out grow it.

My daughter is also chronically constipated, which Dr Kriel says is what caused the runny tummy as the fecal matter next to the bowel lining received all the water and just " fell away"  and she is on pegicol now to loosen all the compacted fecal matter and to sort that out.

She also has a bacterial bladder infection and has started her on an antibiotic for that something aprofioxacm or something like that for 7 days then we have to take a urine sample back to test the urine again.

So thats the latest with our daughter.

Thanks for your help in the past i really appreciate it.
