Back From The Flu Or Somthin Else

My son and I are just now recovering from a horrible cold. Both with fever and cough. Took him to his follow up at pediatrician for biopsy results which coincided with his cold (fever of 102) and said it was viral, isn't it always? We are just now starting to feel a bit better. I worry more with my kids when they're sick as any parent does. We started the diet Monday and told his pediatrician who said to just let him know how it goes, no argument. Luckily he's very easy going. We told him about the second opinion at Boston Children's on the 27th, so he's well aware. I'm just concerned about all the meds I've pumped into us all week. I was in no condition to check anything. When we did eat, we ate properly as we have nothing with gluten in the house. We went nowhere other than the pediatricians office and to bring my daughter to school and to pick her up, so we were pretty much house bound. I think maybe the medication may have messed us up a bit. I don't know. I hope not. I still have to check his miralax. I think I read it was gluten-free, but I want to be sure. And he also takes generic ferensol daily with half a multi vitamin. I bought him Suave kids shampoo and we use Ivory soap. My daughter uses garnier fructise. She has the snarliest hair. I'm a hairdresser by trade and none of the professional products I've ever used other than one Redken conditioner comes close to the garnier conditioner. I use aquaphor on Bubbas rashes. My daughter and son devoured a box of envirokids panda puffs in about 4 days. Now she's working on the Panda puffs. Luckily she's not a big sweet eater and I think these cereals are just sweat enough. Anyway, anyone know about the effects of the meds. Probably not much since we just started I hope. I have to check all my meds. I'm hoping to cut back on a lot of those after being on this diet for a while. I'm tired of feeling like garbage.
