tummy troubles

The GI had some answers for me today. Because Ryder is hypotonic (has weak core muscles) his colon/intestines are most likely weak as well. He is probably constipated and in pain from a blockage. He has regular, soft bm's daily, but the doctor doesn't think he is getting it all out and it continues to block up. We are going for an X-Ray and some laxatives tomorrow. He feels this is why Ryder is waking up at 4am and not eating as much because he feels full and is in pain:( His therapies were rough today. He is struggling this week:( Hopefully we can get his tummy back on track and help him get back on track.

On a positive note--Ryder is now signing more please (together) and hat:)
