Emmett’s test results came back and their very frustrating

About mid-afternoon, right before I picked Elliott up from school, Emmett’s doctor called. I had left a message because we were notified that Emmett’s results came back but the page that was supposed to contain the results was blank. Apparently, it was a glitch in the MyChart app. Either way, I needed them to read …

This is why we have to watch Gavin so closely around food

Gavin’s not feeling so well. It began last night with him overeating at the cookout. Gavin has never been one with a functional ability to self-regulate. As an example, he doesn’t ever really feel full when he eats. What happens is he will eat too much and end up making himself sick. He’s been doing …

The last time we were here, we received devastating news

Today is going to be one of the biggest days we’ve had in awhile, at least as far as Gavin and his health are concerned. Gavin finally gets back into Gastroenterology. We’ve finally come full circle and I’ll explain why. It’s been awhile since he’s been seen and that’s only because we were basically overrun …

It’s likely nothing to worry about but there are two much more serious possibilities that he’s genetically tied to

For the third night in a row, Gavin has struggled to go to sleep because he isn’t feeling well. Last night it was a stomachache and headache. Tonight is was a stomachache again. I think we need to get him into his gastro again and this time look at gastroparesis. Lizze has this, it’s genetic …

All that matters is that they get to go

The boys are gone, and on their way to the Akron Zoo with their Grandparents. That’s a bit of mixed emotion for us, because we wanted to take the boys, but all that matters is that they get to go. We’ll just take them to the Cleveland Zoo in a few weeks.  As far as …

New concerns with Gavin’s health have us worried

We’re heading into a rough weekend. I need to catch you up on a few things I didn’t get around to yesterday.  The most concerning issue at the moment is that Gavin wasn’t feeling well while at his Grandma’s house, and ended up vomiting. The question is whether or not he’s actually sick. I tend …

Waiting for answers at the @clevelandclinic 

Lizze and I made it to Cleveland, with a bit of time to spare. We did that despite some asshole almost crashing into us as he tried to pass us on the single lane in ramp.  Aside from that, traffic wasn’t too bad, and we had a nice conversation.  I’m waiting for Lizze to get …
