It’s hard to reconcile having a child who is so sick, when on his great days he looks like this…. But things continue to go downhill in the land of the belly blues, and we are grasping at straws for answers. What we know at this point is that Max has something called Food Protein Induced Enteropathy, and maybe a little of what is called FPIES (Food Protein Induced Enterocolitis). What that means is that his belly is fighting off food proteins like they are the enemy. His belly can’t absorb them. And when the level of “toxins” gets too high, he vomits. And wakes up ten times a night screaming.
