This morning I packed our bags up, emptied the drawers and didn't fill out tomorrow's menu, as I thought we were heading home today....that was until Noah's doctor came in. He said that the gastro team had said that there is nothing they can do endoscopically to help Noah with his reflux, and because we don't know how much Noah is refluxing his doctor decided that we should do some tests to see. The test may or may not show reflux at that particular time, but they are hoping it will give them some answers as to how severe his reflux is, and then they can make some decisions about what to do about it.
So we are still here for another couple of days, until the tests are done. If we went home without getting the tests done as an inpatient it would be a while till we could get the tests done. I told his doctor I'm happy to hang out another couple of days if it means we get everything done and have some answers (hopefully!). They agreed I can go home tomorrow after our first test and then come back in on Friday morning, so we are very grateful for that. They just won't discharge Noah until after his second test.
The doctors are all so happy with how well Noah is, especially after how sick he was.
Kobe had a great day with Eden today. When he's not playing with Eden he is causing havoc on the ward as he escapes out of Noah's room through the doors which hold all the dirty linen.
I'm sure he won't mind another couple of days playing on the ward.
