Well it was this morning...he drank the stuff down with no problem, so no tube...thank GOD! He was to have 7 scans...one every 15 minutes. He did GREAT (albeit screaming when held down) for the first 3, then he puked...it wasn't a lot, so they finished the test and did the other four scans...hopefully we wont hav to redo it. Overall it was OK and the portable dvd player for Baby Einstein in between scans was a life saver!!!!

I'm glad it went well but sorry for the puke! I hope they got the information they needed. Let us know what the doc says.

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site: www.caringbridge.org/visit/jedd
Man, I'm soo sorry he puked. We were amazed when Jedd didn't at his. He had to lay flat as a board for 30 mins for a continuous scan. Hopefully the test will come back fast. Did you try to stare at those little dots on the computer screen to figure them out??? LOL I couldn't make hide nor hair of them...LOL

That is a hoot Jessica b/c I did stare at those things too. I couldn't figure them out either. Holden had to lay flat as a board for 1 hour for a continuous scan then he had to come back 30 min after that for one more scan. Holden didn't puke either and i was in shock myself.

Ugh, testing is so stressful..... I'm glad it went relatively well, and I hope you get some clarity from the results. (He's looking like such a big boy these days -- those eyes just slay me... :) )

His scan wasn't continuous...it was one minute every 15 minutes...thank god..but him screaming and laying flat is just a recipe for vomit. I'll let you know what I find out...and yes I was staring at the stupid screen...I hate not knowing what I'm looking at!
Check with your
doctor first!
