Maddy's Barium Swallow

Poor Madison had to suffer through a barium swallow yesterday. They weren't able to do the whole test because she got so upset but they did see that when she swallows it is going down the right tube and not entering her airway. The specialist did say that she is refluxing and she can hear it come up and that is probably is going into her airway when it comes back up and that is why she coughs all the time. So we have yet another person say it is reflux and she gave us some helpful tips on things to do. We are going to thicken her bottles even more to see if that helps and her doctor took her off of zantac and on prilosec. She goes for her eye appointment tomorrow so I will let you all know how that goes.

Sorry I haven't been updating my pictures a lot. Things have been crazy here with all the of the doctors appointments and other things going on. I will try to get better about it again.

It sounds like your making forward progress and Maddy will be on her way to getting better. I think I would probably respond the same way she did to the barium mix. Only, they would have to drug me to get that stuff near my mouth and I would cry even hard after taking it.
