UPDATE ON MY LITTLE BUDDY!

WE WENT TO FOLLOW UP WITH DR. MESTRE(GI DOCTOR) YESTERDAY AND AUSTIN IS DOING GOOD. HE WAS UP TO 28 LBS AND THE NEW STEROID THAT HE HAS BEEN ON SEEMS TO BE WORKING PRETTY GOOD. HE HAS NOT HAD ANY TROUBLE SINCE HE'S BEEN ON IT AND HE EATS ALOT MORE THAN HE USED TO. DADDY LIKES TO SAY THAT IT GIVES HIM "ROID" RAGES, BUT I KEEP TELLING HIM THAT IS JUST HIS SWEET LITTLE AUSTIN SHOWING HIM HIS TEMPER THAT HE SHOWS ME ALL THE TIME:)!! MY BIG QUESTION FOR DR. MESTRE WAS IF AUSTIN HAD NO ALLERGIES, DID THAT MEAN THAT HE DID NOT HAVE THE EOSINPHILIC EOSAPHAGITIS. I DID NOT GET THE ANSWER I WANTED AND HE WAS QUICK TO SAY THEY DO NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT THE DISEASE RIGHT NOW. HE SAID THAT IF HE DID HAVE AN ALLERGY IT WOULD BE EASIER TO TREAT THE EE BECAUSE YOU ELIMINATE THE ALLERGY AND THINGS SHOULD GET BETTER. SO BECAUSE HE HAS NO ALLERGIES WE HAVE TO TRY NEW MEDICINES AND HE WILL HAVE TO BE SCOPED AGAIN TO SEE IF THE MEDICINES ARE WORKING. IF THE MEDICINES ARE WORKING THEN YOU HAVE TO DECIDE WHEN TO STOP THE MEDICINES AND HE SAID IN MOST CASES IF YOU STOP THE MEDICINES THE SYMPTOMS FROM THE EE WILL COME BACK. SO THIS IS VERY FRUSTRATING TO ME BECAUSE I JUST WANT HIM TO BE HEALED AND NOT HAVE TO TAKE ALL THE MEDICINES FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE. HE DEALS WITH IT ALL SO GOOD AND KNOWS WHEN HE NEEDS HIS MEDICINE AND WILL COME AND ASK FOR IT. I JUST PRAY ALL THE MEDICINES DO NOT HAVE ANY LONG TERM SIDE EFFECTS AND THAT HE CAN GET OFF OF THEM AND STAY OFF OF THEM SOON. SO PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR HIM AND I KNOW GOD IS IN CONTROL AND HE WILL TAKE GOOD CARE OF MY BABY BOY!!

AUSTIN HAS A BIG TODAY AND THE FIRST THING HE SAID TO ME THIS MORNING WHEN HE WOKE UP BESIDE ME WAS, " WE GOING TO MI MI'S WORK TODAY." THEY ALL WANT TO SEE HIM IN ACTION WITH HIS GUITAR AND HE HAS BEEN PRACTICING FOR HIS BIG SHOW TODAY! I AM ANXIOUS TO SEE IF HE GOES THROUGH WITH IT, BUT IF I HAD TO GUESS I WOULD SAY YES. I WILL BE SURE TO GET SOME PICTURES AND WILL LET YOU ALL KNOW IF WE HAVE A PERFORMER ON OUR HANDS:)!

I bet he is a good little performer. Glad he is doing better! Let me know if he ever comes to the main Children's campus to get scoped. I work in recovery room now, and can watch for him. Hope you all are doing great!
