Love Nugget

Well, my poor love Nugget has not been feeling all that well. It appears that he is having some sort of GI issue. This issue has been keeping us up ALL night long. So, we went to a pediatric GI specialist last week to see if we could get some answers. The MD thinks he has bad reflux and he goes to childrens in 3 weeks to have an upper GI and ultrasound done. Our main concern is that there is no physiological problems. Turns out that the intestines are one of the first things to form in the womb and since he was not growing as he should during the early phases we are going to get it all checked out. Also, Brendan has GI issues and being an identical twin he is more at risk of chromasomal issues. So we will see.... better to be safe than sorry. So far the medicine they put him on seems to be helping. The good news is my little "failure the thrive" nugget is putting on weight and is now in the 25th percentile!!!

I hope it's nothing serious and you start getting some sleep!! Feel free to drop Jack off at our house - I really do mean it. Him and Savannah can play. She loves having company!

I'll be praying for the little guy! I hope he keeps feeling better and all goes well with the upcoming tests.

Did I know Brendan was an identical twin?

I'll be praying for Collins, you and Brendan. I know you hate to have to see him go through the test. Keep us all posted.
