A Brief Update on Little Quinn

Little Quinn has had some digestive problems of late, although he's finally started putting on weight again after falling seriously behind the "curve". Today he went through a battery of tests at a GI clinic to see what's going in inside his gullet, and we are now awaiting the results. The pediatrician believes he has reflux issues. We'll see.

One of today's tests apparently involved filling his tummy with four ounces of barium.

As I write this, Little Quinn has just passed those four ounces of barium. Into his diaper.

As a guy who has to clean out the trash compactor at The Store at least once every two weeks, I can safely say that a diaper filled with barium that has been through a baby's digestive tract is one of the most vile, disgusting things I have ever seen.

I know, you're all grossed out now, but that's what blogging is all about. Sharing.

Heh, indeed.
