Just before Christmas I got a call from the GI specialist's office in Portland and Matthew has been scheduled for his tests on Jan 5th. Since he needs to be at the hospital at 9:30 AM, my Mom and I are going to leave Monday and stay overnight in Portland (at Sara's) Monday night and then go over to the hospital Tuesday morning. Reed is going to stay home with Thomas--that way he is not without both a parent and his sibling for three days. Matthew's first test (where he will be put to sleep) is scheduled for 10:30. 2-3 hours after he wakes up he will be moved to the children's floor and will stay there with a tube down his nose to his stomach until Wednesday morning when they release us from the hospital. It will then take 5-7 days to get the results. We will keep everyone posted.
