Endoscope Tomorrow

Well, tomorrow is the endoscope.  The cold is just about over, the congestion much improved, so I don't think it will pose a problem.  The GI doctor will be putting a camera down Levi's throat to check his esophagus, stomach, and intestines.  His vocal cords were red and swollen last month at the ENT appointment, so I'm curious to see if there's been any difference.  We've been giving Levi Nexium an hour before meals instead of with a meal in the hopes that this is what was causing the return of acid reflux, but it doesn't seem to have made a difference.  He still swallows and spits up if he lays flat on his back.  We would just really like some answers.  His poor little nose is red from the suctioning we have to do several times a day.  Please pray that this gives us some answers, and that the problem is simple to fix.  Levi has already been through so much!  I'm hoping we can wrap up the remaining issues (seizures, congestion, acid reflux) soon, so we can enjoy a year without so much struggle.

After church today we went out to lunch and put Levi in a regular high chair with our jackets around him to give him some stability.  He sat in it through the majority of the meal, holding his head up and being a big boy! Of course we had to take a pic to commemorate the occasion!  Way to go, Levi!!
