The bad news is that Luke has the Kalingadongo.
The good news is that he is doing it in the toilet! [Cue the celebratory music and confetti!]
I can't believe how different it is to have a kid who knows how to put the Kalingadongo in the toilet. It almost makes having a sick child enjoyable. Who am I kidding? I love the fact that he has taken naps for the past two days!
Haven't heard of the Kalingadongo? Ask my dad. He's the one who told me about it when I was growing up. I'm guessing he had a lot of experience with it.
The symptoms of Luke's Kalingadongo are persistent diarrhea and throwing up. The cause of it is unknown, but I have a gut feeling that it has something to do with his over consumption of milk or maybe from drinking old milk out of a sippy cup.
When I went to the doctor today about Luke's Kalingadongo, I asked him how much milk was too much for a 3 year old and he wouldn't answer the question. He just kept saying that he should drink 2%. Maybe I should have been more specific, "Is a half gallon a day too much milk for a 3 year old?"
Either way, I am trying to help Luke to cut back. It'll be a long road to recovery, but the first step is admitting that you have a problem and if anyone has a problem with drinking too much milk, it's definitely Luke.
