Mathias Johann - 12/14/05 - GERD, Hypotonia, Sensory Processing Disorder, Dyspraxia; Stopped silently aspirating at 20 months :)
First partial seizure on 7/2; First Endoscopy on 7/16; results: bile reflux gastritis.
New Meds: Zegerid & Carafate
Allergic to dairy
Endoscopy today
Mathias had his endoscopy today. He did pretty well given that he was going into it with a temperature. He's sick but just a temp, no other signs of illness, and since all involved were okay with it we decided to go ahead. The GI found stuff that we weren't expecting. His stomach is a mess. There was a bunch of bile that shouldn't have been there and quite a few erosions. We don't yet have a reason for why there is so much bile in his tummy but the erosions explain his stomach pain. The GI also found some swelling at the top of the esophagus that made her a bit suspicious so we have to wait for the biopsy results to rule out EE. There is also a bunch of lab work that we have to wait for. His meds have been changed but we have to wait for the pharmacy to order one of them. What a pain. The temperature is still here but I am hoping that he sleeps better tonight. Libby

PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Hi there. I am glad you had the scope, but I am so sorry that you got these results. I am hoping his esophagus is just inflamed and not subjected to EE. Chances are good that it is the I am keepin gmy fingers crossed for you. Please keep us posted.
