Stinky..(sometimes literally)

I took James into the dr 2 weeks ago to see if we could get some control on his reflux. The medicine he was on first time around actually made things worse. His Dr didn't like that he was spitting up green (I'm convinced it was from the peas the day before, but what do I know) so we had the upper GI done to make sure there wasn't any kind of blockage. He did great. He was so hungry he sucked down the bottle of white stuff in no time and as long as he had the bottle in his mouth he held still for them. Thankfully no blockages but they did see that the valve at the top of the stomach doesn't seal like it is supposed to so they put him on a different med to see if it will settle things down enough for the valve to mature and start sealing. So far he still has good days and bad days.
When we took him in he was weighing 16.12. Can't wait to see how much he has gained since he is holding more down throughout the day.

  1. Wow you guys have been busy. I hope they James meds right so he can eat. Boston is still having that problem. We keep trying to take him of his meds and he stops eating. That is crazy about Bill's hand. I hope he gets feeling better. Miss you guys.
