Froggy had her follow-up appointment with the GI doc today.
Here's what we know:
Weight: 32.4 pounds (the little stinker gained a pound - Murphy's law).
Froggy had two scans last week. One showed her upper GI, the other showed how her stomach empties.
Both results were mostly normal. The tests showed some thickening in her gastric folds - which is common for CFer's. Her gastric emptying was also mildly slow. Neither of these facts seemed to bother the GI doc, and they are going to schedule the surgery in the next few weeks. First we have to get approval through our insurance. I get warm fuzzies just thinking about the red tape!
March 3rd, we'll do an ultrasound on Froggy's liver, since her levels were a bit high.
At some point we'll have a meeting with the Anesthesiologist, another meeting with our Nutritionist, and today they ran blood work to check Froggy's coagulation, vitamin levels, and liver enzymes.
Froggy was a champ, but then at the park was very rude to a little girl who was apparently taking too much time on the slide and called her 'nasty.' Oh dear.
