I really wish I could say that we had success today... but I can't! I was told kind of what to expect and how this whole test would work. Um... it did NOT happen like I was told. They took us back to the x-ray room to take his medical history, then told me to go back to waiting room while they did the test. I told them I was under the impression I was going to be able to be there to help feed him his bottle and stuff. He won't take a bottle from anyone but me now. So.. to make a long story short.... they sent me out to the waiting room, I waited for a good 25 minutes, and then a Radiologist came out to talk to me. Low and behold Josh did not cooperate and the test was inconclusive. He only swallowed two times, and it was several minutes apart. So the only thing he could tell was that there wasn't an obstruction. Well duh! We never suspected that. So he told me he would tell our Ped. in his report that if the symptoms don't improve over the next 4-6 weeks, he needs to go down to Primary Children's to have them do the test. I regret now not just doing that in the first place. But I really thought we would be able to get enough results here at our hospital and I could avoid another Primary Children's visit. Oh well.... at least now I know. So we are basically right where we started. I called his therapist with the results and she told me she would confer with some other OT's and maybe we can get a new game plan. So we'll see. Thanks for all the love and concern for our little Josh. He is such a trooper!
Welcome to our blog. This blog started out as a family blog to share pictures of fun events. As life has gone on we have found our family going in a new direction, one we never thought or imagined. This is our life and how we survive raising two boys with special needs, and one sweet baby girl with challenges of her own. We love our life and wouldn't change it for anything. Thanks for visiting!
I am a full time wife and mommy and I keep very busy! I married my wonderful husband, Scott, on March 10, 2001. We have three wonderful boys, two of them have special needs and one Sweet new baby girl with her own challenges. You can usually find me helping with homework, running to and from school, keeping up with therapy for our little ones, cleaning the house.. the list will always go on! We take life here one day at a time and enjoy every moment we get.
