GI Test Preliminary Results

We had our GI test today and it went very well. Chase was very compliant, going until 11am without eating anything except for some very yucky tasting barium! The radiologist herself (which was a nice surprise), as well as seven technicians, took pictures of the barium as Chase swallowed it and let it pass into his stomach. Every thirty minutes or so, they would take additional pictures to see how it was doing as it passed from his stomach and farther into his intestines.

The end result was that his GI system seems to be working just fine. They will take more pictures in a couple months to make sure that everything is as good as it looked.

We'll see what the next step is - whether it will be an allergy test, a scope, or more wait-and-see. In the meantime we're continuing both dairy-free and gluten-free. I'm loving the corn chips and salsa, honey chex, and Amy's brand gluten-free frozen dinners! Yum!
