EGD anyone?

Today was Kev's date with the scope :) Apparently they didn't stop at the tonsil hockey. After a good look into his esophagus, stomach, and duodenum.

The verdict: 1. An inflammed esophagus, they took a biopsy to see exactly why (infection, recent vomiting, smoking, acid reflux). 2. A Hiatal Hernia which at the moment I have no clue how big it is, but if it is small it's manageable without surgery or anything else. Until we know more about that there isn't a whole lot to worry about. It could be what is making him sick though. If it is big enough and causing him all of those symptoms he would have to have laparoscopic surgery. We're hoping for the little one were takes this medicine to prevent the reflux and watch what you eat and you'll be okay :) 3. NO ULCERS *hurray*

For the night we are just relaxing and letting Kev rest up after his exciting date :)

Good Job, Kev. (and you too, Shelly! Way to make sure he followed thru!)

We're pulling for you. Follow the doc's directions, and let us know how things pan out.
