Hi everyone ! As promised, I am updating everyone on Ryan and the possibility of him having Pica. My cousin is an RN with many specialities and she too (like a lot of you here) thinks that he may have Pica.
The good news is (if you want to call it good)that I believe it is because he is lacking nutrients due to his not wanting to eat anything. I know it sounds odd that I refer to that as good news, but a behavioral problem would make things much more difficult wouldn't you think?
Anyway, I started Ryan on Poly-visol (Thanks Debbie!) and the great news is that we are going on 12 days wood free !! His appetite is improving too. Also he always had very lose bowels and now he is much more normal.
I hope to continue on this way. Wish us luck and thanks so much for your support.
