Hey, guess what. Micah has incredibly low motility in his GI tract (surprise, surprise). He finally had his upper GI study this afternoon. But it was basically cancelled after just one x-ray because the barium fluid they injected into his J-tube did NOT travel down his intestines. It all backed immediately up into his duodenum and into his stomach. Surprise, surprise.
I don't know what the next steps are. But this is not the easiest diagnosis to treat. I probably won't be back online this evening, but I'll update more tomorrow.
Down syndrome info for the day: Motility is an issue with lots of kids who have Down syndrome, so Micah is not alone in his GI struggles. Not many have issues as extreme as his, though.
