How's Ryan doing?

Well, Ryan IS doing better! The meds really do seem to be working! We've found if we give him the ulcer med (the carafate) before he eats then he eats better, spits up less and whines less. now he still has had some bad days and we're super cautious of getting our hopes up that things are 'fixed'. but he really is doing better and even going down consistently for naps completely on his own with no crying! it's insane, i don't even know this kid. he also took a few steps on his own! but since i don't have a video of that i'll post some more pics from the shore :)

Ryan Jay has a new friend

Here are some really cute videos of Ryan with his new friend Brendan. Brendans dad is a fireman in ocean city and we met him 14(yikes!) years ago visiting the firehouse. Every year since then the 'fan club' has visited him! and now our kids are friends! i can't believe it's been 14 years jim!!

These are from his birthday party. They are so funny together, they're so similar! They kept yelling 'dada' at eachother down the hallway and it totally looked like they understood eachother!

Biopsy Results are in!

Ryans biopsy results are in! Ryan Jay has no allergies and it appears no lactose intolerance either. He does have a stomach irritation. Nothing serious and it can be treated with meds. Praise the Lord for this great news!! It's exactly what we were praying for... nothing serious, something treatable! Thank you all so much for your prayers! I've been playing phone tag with the doctor today to get more details on the meds etc, but overall that's the story. We'll of course keep you up to date. Praise the Lord!

Ryan J Gets Scoped

Not such a fun day today for Ryan Jay. He had an endoscopy and a flex sigmoidoscopy this morning. The procedure went well and they didn't see anything physically wrong, they did take biopsies from both ends. He had a lot of mucus in his lungs and they had to give him a breathing tube and some breathing treatments afterwards. but his O2 went back up quickly.

It's a painful recovery from the procedure, they pumped him full of air, plus he had general anesthesia which made him nauseous, and they stuck a scope down his throat so that's sore, and he got an enema and a scope up his butt so ouch!! poor little guy!!! no wonder he was inconsolable for so long afterwards!

he did finally get to sleep and had a really good nap and did start to eat some afterwards and he played and babbled pretty much like normal tonight. so thank you so much for all of your prayers and support!! now we wait a week for the results of the biopsies.
