TEST RESULTS

DR. MESTRE CALLED LAST NIGHT WITH THE RESULTS AND THE BIOPSIES ONLY SHOWED THE ESOPHAGITIS AND DUODENITIS, WHCIH IS JUST CAUSEDD FROM HIS REALLY BAD REFLUX. THE PH STUDY SHOWED THAT AUSTIN HAD 57 EPISODES OF REFLUX DURING HIS TEST AND MOST OF THEM LASTED UNDER A MINUTE. TWO EPISODES AN HOUR IS CONSIDERED HIGH AND HE HAS 2.4 AN HOUR, SO ALL WE CAN DO IS KEEP TRYING THE MEDICINE. HE IS ON 30 MG OF PREVACID AND CARAFATE, WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO HELP PUT AN EXTRA COAT OF LINING ON HIS ESOPHAGUS AND STOMACH. HOPEFULLY THIS WILL HELP WITH THE ESOPHAGITIS AND DUEDONITS, BECUASE THIS CAN GET WORSE AND CAUSE ULCERS. HE HAS DONE GOOD THE PAST TWO DAYS, SO MABEY IT IS STARTING TO WORK! I CANNOT IMAGINE HAVING REFLUX THAT MANY TIMES A DAY! NO WONDER MY BABY DOES NOT LIKE TO EAT!! HE JUST STARTED GETTING IS APPETITE YESTERDAY AFTER ALL OF THIS, SO I REALLY HOPE HE DID NOT LOOSE ANY WEIGHT! LORD KNOWS HE NEEDS EVERY OUNCE HE CAN GET!! WE FOLLOW UP WITH DR. MESTRE IN MONTH TO SEE HOW THE MEDICINES ARE DOING THIS TIME, SO PLEASE PRAY THEY WORK FOR HIM!! THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND I HAVE NEW PICTURES TO POST SOON!!
