Wednesday testing

AJ goes in next Wednesday for a barium swallow test.  His vomiting has increased and we think it might be related to strictures in his esophagus.  His last dilatation was February 2011.  His GI doctor wanted to just go ahead and schedule the dilatation but I don't want to do something without knowing for sure that strictures are the problem.  I'm hoping he does ok swallowing the stuff (ick).    If he needs the dilatation the ENT dr will assist as she is the only one that can intubate him safely.  He has a really bad cold right now and I am hoping that his chronic cough does not blister his throat too much. He has missed a few days of school due to his cold.

This is what he spends his time doing
 (Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for the fun)

Please keep praying for Tripp and Courtney.  They have requested prayers for peace.

You keep him in perfect peace 
whose mind is stayed on you, 
because he trusts in you.  
Trust in the Lord forever 
for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.
Isaiah 26:3-4 (ESV)
