Our New GI Appointment
The appointment went much better then I thought it would. This Dr. employs PA's that are able to answer questions and speak on the child's case which is awesome. I will not longer have to deal with a MA that mixes up messages!

I prepared a written history for the Dr. and he agreed something was up. maybe an allergy or gluten intolerance maybe or something else entirely but he does not think there is nothing he can do for her.

so this week we are doing 3 blood tests and this friday we have an EGD upper endoscopy scheduled! He's going to take biopsies, enzyme panel and fluid collection so i really hope we find something out!

Wow is all I can say. How did you get your doc to move so quickly? I'm glad to hear that the appt went well and that they're trying to figure things out for her. Good luck and keep us updated. We have our scope on Thursday, also hoping to find somethings out as well. -Jen

Ryan was born May 20th 2008. 9 lbs 2 oz. Ryan’s magic bullet was 30mg of Prevacid capsules mixed with Caracream from Marci-kids (I am forever indebted to the team at Marci-kids), Claratin for the mucos, and Mirlax for the constipation. Within 2 months of this combo he jumped from the 6% to the 50% for weight and continues to climb. Be strong, listen to your instincts. Read his story for more specifics that just might help you too - Karen
