sorry I haven't been on. will read and catch up and hope to post today.


Just wanted to let you know how Eliana’s GI appointment went yesterday.

Her diagnosis is
FTT = Failure to Thrive
GER = Reflux (because she still vomits even though upper gi stated no reflux)
Chronic Constipation

She is also not getting enough calorie intake. I knew that as she isn’t eating enough foods. March 14 she will have a swallow study done in Louisville. She also needs to have a CBC, Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, a UA and a Celiac Disease Serology done.

Eliana measured 28 ˝ inches tall and weighed 16 pounds 11 ounces.

That sounds like all the tests they did with Brandon. She is really small. I totally understand your worries. It took us a little while to get in for a swallow study but that really helped with diagnosing him and getting help for him.

the bloodwork she is having done tomorrow locally and the swallow study is Tuesday in Louisville (1.5 hr drive)...hopefully we get enough tests out of the way soon and a treatment plan. Eliana also has a 6 week follow up with the GI April 14. And a recheck for her eyes on March 22. It still crosses and is doing it more then it was before. She has actually lost 11oz in 6 weeks. i'll keep you updated!
