We would appreciate your prayers today.  We are doing an esophagram later this morning to check a few things on Evie. In this test, they use barium to see her esophagus. This means she will have to either be force fed a bottle or we put the barium through her gtube and hope she throws up. Neither option is appealing to me. Force feeding her (aside from the fact that it is VERY unlikely she would even swallow) would set us back again on feeding orally. And obviously it’s no fun to force your child to throw up either. Please pray that the test goes better than I’m expecting right now. If we can’t get a good picture, the we’ll have to do an MRI with sedation which can be dangerous and unpredictable with a CHARGEr. Thank you!
