poo problems again

So today we brought Isaiah into the gastroenterologist for his appointment. He hasn't pooped in a month despite our best efforts. We arrived at St. John's and went downstairs for an X-ray. Then upstairs for the appointment. The nurse practitioner, who is awesome, came in and promptly told us that he had quite an "impressive" amount of poop all the way up to his chest. I immediately told her I felt it was time to explore the possibility that this was more than just functional constipation and that I would like to test for celiac and Hirschprung disease. She agreed that she also wanted to look at these things as well as hypothyroidism and a few other things I can't recall at the moment. She said he'd need to be admitted for an NG tube so that they could administer "Go Lightly" to help him poop.
We were admitted immediately. Isaiah got two enemas which did result in some output, but this was just a drop in the bucket compared to what the X ray showed inside of him.
So, now he's on the "Go Lightly". He is pooping some, very frequently but not very much. It's all pure liquid. Sadly, he is throwing up much more than he is pooping. The nurse just mentioned that this may be because he is so backed up that the "Go Lightly" can't break through it and so it has no where to go but back up and out as vomit. Hoping he poops more because we can't go home tomorrow if not. He has also developed a fever. We are not alarmed about it right now though because of the fact that there are several possibilities for this. Sydney was sick with a fever a couple days ago and also Isaiah got his HepA vaccine a couple days ago so either of these could account for the fever, which is fairly low grade at this point, at only 100.6.
Tomorrow, assuming the "Go Lightly" works as it should, he will have a barium enema and then an X-ray to look for Hirschsprung's disease. We are, of course, really hoping this is not it, as it would mean surgery and likely a colostomy. We are also hoping its not celiac, as implementing the celiac diet would be difficult to say the least in our house! It's very likely that it is indeed just functional constipation and we are hoping that this is it, but felt that it was definitely beyond time to explore other options.
Please pray for our little boy. He is feeling quite miserable now. I put Albert on the phone with him a few hours ago and all the poor kid said was "Mommy's mean." I'm sure he thinks I am the worst mom in the world for letting the nurses give him 2 enemas and put a tube down his nose!

Oh this sounds miserable! What can be done if it's functional constipation?
Praying so as your poor little man faces so much more tomorrow! Praying so for you as you have to watch what happens...
Psalms 40:1-4 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
