Super Star

Markas had an endoscopy done today. That kid is a super star! He woke up pretty quickly. He asked almost immediately if he could go home. The procedure it self went well. The doctor said he could see some irritation from his reflux but there was no hiatal hernia and no ulcers. He didn't think any of it was from allergic esophagitis but we won't know for sure until we get the biopsy results back. He changed his medication and put him back on a proton pump inhibitor. He was on the same med before and it seemed to work well so hopefully it will work just as well now as it did before.

Back to my super star. He woke up better than I have seen anyone wake up after anesthesia. In fact, there was no napping off and on through out the day like most of us would do after being put completely, no, he was WIDE awake the rest of the day and I even had a hard time getting him to bed tonight. Crazy! I was exhausted, not him. He didn't have much of an appetite today despite not being able to eat since last night. He did eat a little bit of chicken but nothing else. He spent the remainder of the day driving me crazy until the other two got home from school.
