Forgot to update...

Not long after the last post, we made more changes to A's life.

1 - her patch test should up as positive to pork and beef. We eliminated these 2 meats from her diet, and therefore she is essentially vegetarian. She does eat venison when we can get it.

2 - we fired her GI doc. Well not officially yet. He wants to wait and see for 3 months, to see if she will feel better. This is too long in my oppinion for anyone to be in pain. He also wants to wean her off of her reflux meds in 3 months. He said this right after I said that she refluxes if we miss one does. Lastly, he lied about how many biopsies were taken. He told me that he took one from the esophagus and one from the stomach. The esophagus one was lost. His nurse told me that there is no record of the esophagus one on the surgical report.

3 - A feels so much better on the current diet. I am worried about nutrition and calories. She does not eat enough food most days and has been refusing her Splash.

4 - tomorrow we head to the new GI for A's first appt.

Wow, poor A! I really hope that you get better care from the new doc and that you find some things that A can and will eat! Praying for you...
