Owen and I are off this afternoon to the hospital for an ultrasound. From there we are headed to our family dr. Mostly just to touch base with her and let her know what has been going on this weekend. And to find out if the ped. specialist told her anything that wasn't told to me.
Basically, they are starting with the ultrasound to see if they can tell if all the nerve endings in the colon are there. If it can't be determined, then we will take Owen back for a barium enima x-ray. The dr. thinks it is possible that Owen is missing some nerve endings (also called hirschsprung’s disease) and that it what is causing the problems.
I am at peace, regardless of what they find. Hoping and praying that it is nothing, but at the same time, if something IS found, I am thankful that it will have been caught now and not later. Because later is almost always never good.
It could be another long day but I am thankful that a friend is watching my other kids so that they don't have to be dragged around with us (cuz 3 kids in x-ray and at a dr's office at lunch/naptime, not my idea of fun!)
