This morning we took Emmett down to Children's for an "Esophogram". This is a live xray of his esophagus while he drinks a barium liquid so they can look for any abnormalities. He has been a spitter since the day he was born and although he would go through a few outfits a day, it never seemed to be a problem. When we went for his 9 month check up, his stats showed that he hadn't gained any weight in the last month, dropping him down to the 1st percentile. This, combined with his spitting up caused us to check things out a little further. We went to a GI specialist at Children's and he recommended an esophagram. Emmett was a great little patient, he drank the liquid like a champ (I guess if some kids won't drink it they need to put a tube in their nose!) He cried at the end because he had been strapped to this board for so long. The doctor saw reflux a few times but nothing else alarming (he will look at the x rays a little closer to double check). Emmett is currently on Prevacid to help reduce the acidity of his spit up. He continues to be a happy little guy and we are so thankful that this isn't anything serious.
