Something is strange with Zachary, but the only real symptom is a loss of appetite. Here's the story...
When I went to get the kids out of bed yesterday morning, I noticed a brownish-tinted wet area in Zachary's bed, It smelled like puke, but there was no evidence of any puke. There was only a few tiny balls of brown mushy something. It looked like poop, but didn't smell like poop. He did have a dirty diaper, but there was no evidence of any diaper disturbance, so I don;t know how any poop could have gotten out of the diaper. His shirt all around his neck was wet and smelled like puke. Nothing like it has happened since.
At breakfast he ate nothing., maybe a couple of Cheerios when I wasn't looking. At lunch he ate nothing. At supper he ate a fish stick, some ketchup, and a few raisins. He ate no snacks. Today he ate a little more at breakfast--half his Cheerios and three quarters of a breakfast bar, but nothing like normal Zachary eating. At lunch he ate a few mini M&Ms and half a potato chip. He hasn't touched any of the food he normally loves, like corn or grapes or pizza.
He has been drinking fine--milk and juice and water.
All diaper output has been completely normal. He's not running a fever. He laughs and plays and runs all over the house like nothing is bothering him. He's sleeping perfectly fine.
So basically, with the exception of the whatever-it-was in his bed yesterday morning, he's totally fine...he just won't eat. So strange! Any ideas?
I'll keep you posted!
The other kids are eating just fine, by the way!
