Field Trips (Wednesday, February 27th, 2008)

It was a long, but good, day at the hospital today. Emma completed more of the tests needed before she comes home.

1) Emma had a barium swallow test. Basically this involved Emma being fed some nasty liquid and x-rays and more x-rays. The x-rays showed the barium liquid going down and then coming partially back up the esophagus. This is commonly known as Acid Reflux. Therefore, Miss Emma will be coming home with Acid Reflux medication.

2) Emma also had an MRI of her brain. Results are back and all looks normal. YEAH!

3) The results are back from the OCGVR (???, I don't know if I have the right acronym). Emma has periodic breathing. This means at times she breathes normal for 4-5 breathes then takes a really shallow breath. As a precaution, she will be coming home with monitors. Dr. Bedhi indicated she will grow out of this. We just need to be patient. (Haha, you all know how patient Emma and I are. We both will have to rely on Darren's patience.)
