Emmett John saw his Gastroenterologist yesterday and he now has an endoscopy scheduled for the 9th of September. We did not think that was going to happen. We thought they would toy with is reflux meds. The doc also went a step further and pulled EJ off his reflux meds which means he will be screaming all night.
The sleepless nights began last night and it was a bad one. EJ is in so much pain when off the meds that Lizze and I are going to keep him on them and get a second opinion. This doc had a God complex and didn’t really listen to us at all. Skipping everything else and going to something rather invasive doesn’t sit well with us. We are going with our gut on this one and getting a second opinion.
EJ was also evaluated by PT yesterday as well. They said that he has major sensory issues. They also told us that when he hits ER that it’s the equivalent of the “fight or flight” response. He can’t be punished for a knee jerk reaction. That really sucks because ER really takes a lot of abuse from him. I think EJ needs corrected when he hits ER regardless of motives but what do I know.
