EGD scheduled

Jax continues to vomit and reflux....this just isn't right. He had two reflux attacks an hour after receiving his Prevacid and Reglan. One attack was so bad it pushed his NG tube right out.

The G.I. specialist team at Childrens Hosp plan to perform an EGD with biopsies on Jax this Friday. We have to have a pre-op physical tomorrow (Wednesday). He'll be staying at the hospital overnight Friday (length undertermined) since he'll be put completely under as a preemie. They're also going to change his formula again until then to Neocate.

I REALLY hope this gives us some answers. He'll either get an NJ tube or a G tube placed instead of his NG tube during this procedure on Friday.

I hope and pray this procedure gives us some answers, and poor Jax isn't poked/proded too much the next few days. Poor kid. Wish us luck.

(FYI: NJ tube goes down the nose directly into the intestines rather than stomach, G tube goes into stomach THRU the skin of his stomach)


The boys today
Classic Brady crushing Jax (I think this is what he did in my belly!)
