Here is AJ's Riddle
Before he told me the riddle, he said that I need to call the doctor so that we could visit her and she can check him out. After he shared his riddle I told him that I think it is a stricture in his Esophagus. He did not want to hear my answer. He quickly said that the ball is gone and he is fine now. I asked him if he was afraid and if that is why the ball is gone. He said, "Yes, a little bit." I told him that they can look for the little ball by drinking some medicine while they take pictures. He wasn't too happy about that either.
I hope to go longer before we actually do another dilatation I am aware that he usually doesn't make it a year without one but I would like to go at least a year, if possible. If my memory is correct, it was last February that he went in. I know the doctor wants to do the dilatation without the test first. She feels since he will always need dilatations; why bother to put him through an extra test? I'm unsure about this plan because I don't want to put him through the procedure until it is absolutely necessary. Maybe, in time, I will become more confident as AJ continues to share his riddles.
Happy New Year!
