+ 0 - 0 | § It all started with a fish stick.

Wow...it's been some month so far.  We had to take Alex to the ER again on Saturday.  At dinner on Friday, he and Dan had a discussion that Alex would take small bites and chew and he would get a whole fish stick.  Alex didn't hold up his end of the bargain, and when the fish stick was still there on Saturday morning, we headed to Albany Med.  After a VERY long day at the ER, they told us that we would have to be admitted to wait until Monday to take a picture (barium swallow x-ray) to find out what we already knew...that there was something stuck in his esophagus.  I argued, and they called someone in from Radioogy to do the test.  Go figure, they found out during the test, that there was something stuck in Alex's esophagus that looked remarkably like a fish stick.  Anyway, they decided to call in the surgeon and remove it on Saturday around dinner-time.  Afterwards, the surgeon (who we had never dealt with before) said that Alex had to remain in the hospital until at least Monday to guess what, wait for another barium swallow.  Alex's esophagus had strictured close over the past year since his last dilation, and was VERY narrow, so the surgeon had to do a lot of work to both get the fish stick down (they couldn't get it out because it just crumbled), and his esophagus open again.

Anyway, Alex was quite traumatized by the surgery, so it probably was a good thing that he stayed at Albany today.  He threw up some really awful-looking stuff a few times...they told us that it was bile and dried blood.  For now, they have him on IV-fluids only (NPO for those who know the lingo) until they can see that the throw-up isn't a bigger issue.  As far as we know (and we have been waiting to talk to a doc since about 4PM), they are still planning to do the barium swallow tomorrow (whenever they can fit him in) and let him go home if everything looks okay and Alex can start tolerating drinks and food.  If these things don't happen, we'll be there longer.  I guess it's at least good that we were able to have the first test done on Saturday.  Otherwise, we'd be starting all of this tomorrow.
