So Im posting here because nobody else seems to understand. My 2.5yr old John, hasnt eaten anything except one peice of toast in days, we took him to the ER last night, just our towns ER and they said there is nothing urgently wrong with him so there is nothing they could do for him (WTH?) anyways, in the 4hrs we waited he had only had a couple sips of water and his diaper wasnt even peed in.
That wasnt a concern.
I am concerned because he was getting glassy eyed, staring off into space a couple times yesturday, and we couldnt snap him out of it for like a minute and all he would do was say no repeatedly and then he was fine. He slept all thru a wedding we went to on saturday, all night, all day yesturday until 230pm when i woke him up to go to the store and then he slept in the cart, then the van and stayed up a bit at the ER. He has done the space stare once today. According to the ER last night, he has lost 1.6Ibs since last week.
I am talking to my SO about going to the childrens hospital in the city today , he isnt as tired but still hasnt eaten anything.
The only thing helpful that the ER dr said yesturday is that he should probably have his endo sooner then the next 11days.
He wasnt worried about the not eating.

I would go to the children's hospital. If you don't think he is acting right then I would have a second opinion.

I'm not sure I'd be too worried about the not eating, but the dehydration woul dbe a big concern of mine. I would take him to the children's hospital.

We had that problem...thankfully the 100% food strike lasted only 2 days..then he would eat one or two bites per day. Our doc said that he wouldn't do anything until Danny fell off the growth charts even though he would just lay around and have no energy at all. We switched GI's through that process. I got more worried about the behavioral effects of not eating and not drinking than the actual not eating and drinking as well... He has hit my "alarm stage" though...I would have had Danny at the ER too...

Do you have any updates? Is he doing any better?

Johns only been eating a couple bites a day right now...he is drinking a bit but not much....we go for his endoscopy on thursday but im not happy with the GI at this point. I might be asking to see another....my fam. dr keeps getting annoyed when i switch drs. Shes next on the switch list

We have switched everything but the allergist. That one was a great doc from the start.
