She is having us up his calories again from 27 kcal/oz to 30 kcal/oz. She just wants to make sure he gets enough calories. Since he's gaining weight she doesn't want to put a feeding tube into his stomach, even though the amount he takes in warrants one. We are giving 2 mL of mylanta before every feeding to see if that helps with the reflux (it coats the esophagus) and she had him get a blood test to check his electrolytes and such. She also wrote an order for Trey and Cole to have a stool sample tested to make sure they don't have any bacteria (they both have diarrhea pretty bad still).
Apparently his upper GI series showed that his duodenum was a little misshapen. This is the part of the small intestine that attaches to the stomach. She wants to repeat the upper GI when he is a year old to make sure that it is growing normally with his body. If he remains extremely fussy she said that we can repeat it sooner and also do a study of the lower bowels. Basically, we're still just watching him and keeping options open. We go back again to see her in a month.
I think we actually have a break from doctors this week! Not one appointment scheduled. Wow!
