This will be a quick one!
I just wanted to give a brief update, some people have gotten bits and pieces of updates and I thought I better "roll it into one" and sum it up for everyone. We took Chase into the pediatrician on Thursday. He had the same symptoms as he had with each of his 4 episodes with RSV (those very nasty respiratory viruses that landed him in the hospital up to a week). The Dr. thought it could also be pneumonia so she sent us right down to Children's ER. After IV fluids, chest x-rays and blood work, the assumption right now is mononucleosis. We'll have better results on Tuesday. The blood work showed his lymph levels were way off, which usually means mono, but they did some more detailed tests.
What I really am hoping is that he feels fine on Tuesday. He is scheduled for an upper GI and esophagram and he has to be healthy to have them.
The tests are pretests for G-tube surgery...Chase lost weight again...we don't know what will happen.
We'll keep you up to date...Have a good Memorial Day!
I'll leave you with a little bit of Chase and Alex:
