Little Mr N stayed overnight at the hospital and was released the next morning. They gave him a stuffed dog in recovery which he promptly named Duke and proceeded to tell his mom that, "Duke is my best dog ever!"
The dr called late this afternoon with the results of the biopsy. N has acid reflux with terrible damage to his esophagus. They are putting him on Nexium so fingers crossed that this one works. So far pepcid, prevacid, and prilosec have all failed to help.
W and Missy A loved being here with me. W mentioned that it would be ok if he stayed longer because "I really want to live here with you, Gram." He's so cute. I think he loves me for my lollypops and high speed cable for the computer. Dial up at home so the pages take forever to load. He played Bob the Builder for about 30 minutes here and then switched over to a little Thomas the Tank Engine.
When my kids were little my parents were always a big part of their lives. I'm so blessed to be able to be there to watch my grandchildren grow up and pitch in to help out when needed. Parents really need a break when raising little ones. Grandchildren and Grandparents both have the same goal: they want to have fun and we want them to have fun.
I guess the learning lesson in all of this is to trust your Dr Mom instincts. If you know something isn't right you need to keep pushing for an answer. The drs would have let this go on for several more months if they hadn't been pushed. I told my daughter, "You have this little boy who is your top priority. The physicians see him as one of about 200 patients on their rotation of patients at any given time. They don't know him like you do. Trust yourself." She did a great job as an advocate for her son and I'm very proud of her.
So thanks for all the good karma. It certainly helped more than I can say. Sock pictures coming up shortly. Finished the Stop My Hubby From Whining pair tonight. Casted on the second sock in the purple/red/green yarn, and working on the heel flap on the light blue/grey Opal smoke yarn. Goal is to finish all pairs of socks next week so I can cast on my MS3. I'm soooo far behind.
