Oh the good ol' mom panic...

Maddie has been doing fabulously well. Life is blissfully quiet... Dare I say, we're getting back to the life we had pre-diagnosis. So imagine my surprise when I found an unflushed poop (solid BTW) floating in a halo of red in the master bath this afternoon. WTF?? We have NO symptoms. Her blood work a week ago was picture perfect. What the hell could this be? DH and I chatted a bit and decided to try not to worry unless more symptoms presented themselves...


I realized she had birthday cake with red fondant yesterday afternoon Guess that solves that mystery. I hate having to worry so much!

Yup, I panicked once when I saw red blood clots in Grace's stool........then remembered she ate cherries.

I'm glad she's doing better and I wish I could stay this will be the last time you'll be panicked but I'd be lying.
Enjoy the good times and let worrying wait until another day.
