Test Results-Zack, Kody, ttrumbo??
I think Zack's emptying scan tests should have come back. Did you get any answers? Did Kody have his emptying scan today? How did that go? ttrumbo-How did your impedance probe turn out?? Any other kiddos that have had recent tests or upcoming tests let us know.

Thanks for thinking of us. Yes Kody had his scan today. I didn't realize this but he had to be strapped down to a table under the camera for a whole hour. They did it so different then what I hear it is like other places. They only did it for the hour and that's it, we were done. It was hard for me to watch. My hubby was able to get him to go to sleep for most of it. Kody did awesome.

We don't know what the results are yet but I couldn't get him to drink anymore then 3 ounces. My DH had to give him the bottle because he wouldn't drink for me. I thought he would be starving and he wasn't interested. He went like 6 hours with only like 3 ounces of bm. He caught up today though. The poor guy coughed and almost threw up several times in the night. He finally slept in our room in his car seat because it was making me nervous with him doing that in his room.

I'm not sure what it'll show when he drank so little and it was in the morning. He usually has more problems toward end of day and when he's been drinking a lot more then 3 ounces. Oh well I'll let you know what the results are when I hear.

I don't know if I told you but holden had to lay still for one hour and then he hadn't emptied enough so they made him lay still another half hour. They said sometimes they will let them go at one hour and come back later for another scan but at Cincy they do make you lay still for the first hour. holden has to be fed when he was asleep so basically I just layed him down after his bottle while he was asleep (I had made him exhausted and starved b/f the test). When he woke up they had all kinds of toys that had lights and music, etc to distract him with so he didn't cry much or anything. I got Holden to take 4 oz for his test but his tummy was beyond empty when he took that. I hope you can get some answers.

one other thing...Z didn't have to lay still for any length of time...they idd a scan every 15 minutes over the course of two hours...so he had to lay for the scan for 60 seconds 7 times...but not a whole hour..and no strapping, i just held him down.
Check with your
doctor first!
