All C-Cool cared about was that they had kid sized chairs to move around and that there were lots of ladies in pretty colored outfits to look at. They called his name to go back to a room and the cutest nurse came out to get him. She says "are you ready to see your toys?" and he went running in while I was gathering up the stroller, the diaper back, the blanket, my purse etc....
He greated the nurses station with a smile and a wave! He had the whole place captivated!
The same anesthesiologist that did his first endo in 2007 was there for this one. She didn't think he needed pre-op anesthesia (the stuff that makes everybody puke) and decided he should ride to his procedure in a yellow, electric Hummer! He loved it! He was working so hard to push the gas pedal, he didn't even look back. He had 3 people guiding the car with 2 other people acting as traffic directors
So with all that - the procedure took 19 minutes and the initial report is that everything looks "normal" which is great but does not give us an answer as to why he continues to stick his hand down his throat to make himself vomit. Biopsies come back next week with more conclusive information. We can do a motility test on the esophogus if we want to - another test that requires anesthesia and money.
H woke up great, he was a little cranky but he did great! Once he woke up enough to be release, he rode out of the hospital in a little red wagon. He was so happy! It was 9:00 a.m.
I needed a nap!

Tonight we had:
- Sauted scallops (wrapped in bacon - but that didn't really work out so they were just sauted scallops - sauted w/ bacon)
- Polenta (A.K.A corn meal mush - but polenta sounds so fancy)
- Wilted Spinach - topped with more bacon - you can' t go wrong with bacon!
This is usually a crowd pleaser - It is gluten-free, dairy free and iron rich (spinach).
Tonight the girls hated it but, as usual, C-Cool ate every bite!
I hope he sleeps through the night!
