Waiting to see the GI
Her GI isn't sure if she has plain old GERD, or reflux, or if she has a disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis. So she put her on 30mg of Prevacid twice a day. If she has reflux, we should be seeing an improvement soon. She also had blood drawn. The GI is having a full blood panel done, including kidneys. If her blood is packed with eosinophils, we will have an upper GI done next week with a biopsy under general anesthesia. Which her GI was concerned about because she is so small. Or if her blood work comes back ok, we will have the upper GI done anyway if she shows no improvement by then.
Showing off her bandage from the blood draw
Her symptoms are refusal to eat. Choking on anything that is not liquid (including stage 3 baby foods). Throwing up, sounding congested after eating, and coughing. She is also having a hard time gaining weight.
