Good News / Bad News


So this was our scene on the way up and most of yesterday.  It didn't seem like he would stop vomiting the entire trip and was constantly in pain.  It was very reminiscent of the pain he was in during March/April of last year when he had pancreatitis.  But once we stopped his feeding (after 7 sticks to get his IV started!) and got some fluid going via IV, he seemed to be able to settle down.  

So today was the big scope.  I can't tell you how I hate these.  Maybe I'm still worried about what happened last time, but the scope is always pretty telling right up front (eye-ball test is never usually wrong).  So here is is as we prepared for the scope.

As you can see, he gets to watch while the do the scope.  It's pretty cool to watch and get to see the inside of yourself; especially if you're an 8 year old boy.  And once the scope started, we could tell the bowel was doing just fine.  Now we still have to wait for the labs to come back, but I would dare say his bowel looked as good/better than most of the times I've witnessed.  So now we're pushing to get his feeds back on target and tollerated.  Hopefully we're just battling a bug, and we're about done.  But as usual it takes a trip to Omaha, a week out of our schedule, and the futility of thinking we have things under control...

He seems to be doing well today, and I always thank God each day for each day.
