Dear Anon,

What have his doctors told you about the blood in the stool? I noticed it's been 2 days since you posted this and wanted to know if because your infant has short bowel syndrome, the blood in the stool may be normal? Or did they ask you to bring him in for tests?

Hope your little one is doing better! Keep us posted.
