Re: 11 mo. old w/dark discharge from penis

Well, little Cal is feeling much better!

DH was researching symtoms like ds's and we figured out that he was really dehydrated. Even though we thought we were watching for signs, he had such bad diarreah that fluids were just getting out so much faster than we were putting them in. We decided to REALLY push the fluids and then take him to our ped's after hours if he wasn't better. That poor kid had so much fluid pushed at him today! Breastmilk, gatorade, pedialyte, popsicles, ice, etc. He started to feel much better, had a little bit less diarreah, stopped having the dark marks in the penis area of his diaper and started having a lot more wet diapers. He also started being a lot more like himself I took him into after hours and it turns out he hasn't lost any weight, his ears still look good (he's very prone to ear infections), and no fever. They were concerned about the diarreah and said that if it is still going on by Monday when the regular office is open, they will do a stool culture to get more results.

Thanks for the advice, I feel like we're back on the right track!
