Last night while we were eating, Sam wasn't really eating anything. His appetite has been kind of poor for the last week or so. But last night he really wasn't eating at all. I asked him what was wrong and his response was that something was blocking the food from going down! It definitely scared me when he said that. I knew he could breathe fine but I wasn't sure what was going on. He seemed to be drinking with no difficulty. So I just sent an email to his GI doctor last night. I got a call first thing this morning that they wanted to see him right away. So I got the kids dressed and dropped Sophia off at Mom's, and Sam and I drove in to MassGeneral. And BONUS: I didn't get lost getting in this time!!!
So we met with a nurse practitioner who I have never seen before. She was wonderful. We kind of went over everything that has happened the last several months with the episode of him turning blue on Matt and gasping, the apnea monitor stuff, the low heart rates, the HUGE tonsils, and red inflammed throat (which by the way was still red, and it has been a month since we tested him for strep). She seems to think that ALL OF THIS could be related to reflux of all things!!! Not that I want him to have reflux, but that would be a great easy thing to deal with and if all this other stuff got better it would be fabulous. So we have him on quite a large dose of prevacid, and will follow up after the weekend...
