Matthew's Upper GI

Matthew had his upper GI and small bowel follow through test yesterday and he did such a fantastic job. They put strawberry Quik in the barium to entice him to drink it and he did a good job of drinking most of it. He was there for almost 4 hours and did not fuss one time. They did not find anything during the tests, the esophagus has no damage from the Reflux, the valve between the esophagus and stomach is working perfectly, the muscle between the stomach and the intestine is looking good and there are no blockages in the intestinal structure. All very good, however he still struggles with eating and sleeping. So he has a follow up appointment next week with the doctor to see what the next steps are. We will keep everyone posted and thank you for all of your prayers.
