Well Keegan had 3 Dr.'s appointments this week (poor guy). The first was on Monday with a speech therapist, Sara. She said that he only has a few things that he will need therapy for from her, but that she is referring him to a feeding therapist too (yeah). She was very nice and she helped us understand allot of what he is going through.
Tuesday we saw his GI, Dr. Silbur. He was pleased with his weight gain but left him on 5 cans of Nutren Jr. a day. He also gave him a new prescription to see if it can help with his stomach aches. He did an ex ray of his stomach (normal) and some lab work (still waiting).
Thursday we went to Dr. Shafron a Neurosurgeon. He said that he cannot make a determination on whether or not his symptoms now and at infancy are due to the Chiari Malformation. SO, Keegan has to have another MRI. This time it will be under anesthesia because it will be about 4 hours long. They are checking his entire spine for abnormalities and doing some kind of ?? fluid study in the cerebellum (ask Brant). This is scheduled for November 5th at St. Joseph's. Then he wants a swallow study. They don't know yet how they will get that, since Keegan gags and throws up the barium. ?????
He missed allot of school and spent a lot of time in Dr.'s offices and he was sooooo good. So we took him to Build-a-Bear. He made a T-Rex with a Batman t-shirt. He named him Bruce. If you are slow like I am, he is named after Bruce Wayne (duh). He has it with him everywhere. I am glad we found something else for him to find comfort in. The more the merrier.
My Aunt Donna brought to my attention that I am not in any pictures with my kids. She reminded me that they love me no matter what I "think" I look like. So, here I am with my wonderful, brave little boy..... and Bruce.
