Pass the Berries

Over the weekend, I stopped at Target to pick up a few things.  Before I left, my eyes began to water and I realized Regan had left a load in her diaper.  We popped into the ladies room for a quick diaper change.

When I removed her diaper, I became alarmed.  Her poop was half brown and half red.  My baby was hemorrhaging!  I wiped her as best I could getting up all the blood.  I wiped the front and back trying to figure out where it was coming from.  I wiped until all the blood was gone.

I prepared myself to take her to the hospital.  This couldn’t wait until Monday morning.  I put on a fresh diaper and put her pants back on.  As I rushed out the door, I stopped and started laughing.   I suddenly remembered I had given Regan her first strawberries the day before.  She wasn’t experiencing rectal bleeding, she was just passing the berries.

Crisis Averted.

    I think Baby had a reaction to strawberries. Her skin started acting weird, so I’m going through the process of elimination right now. Hope Regan fares better.

    Thank goodness they were just strawberries! How embarrassing it would’ve been to go to the ER and have them run tests to find that out!
