The ENT's office called me with the scintiscan results today. The scintiscan is negative, so there is nothing physically wrong with Nolan's tummy and esophagus. This is great news, though I'm a little disappointed because mild acid reflux would have been an "easy fix" to his eating issues. I'd list the things Nolan cannot eat (like cheerios- he can't chew them at almost 2 years of age), but it is easier to list the things he CAN eat:
Soft fruit (strawberries, blueberries, orange slices, melon)
Graham crackers (they dissolve)
Yep, folks- that's it! Even cookies get crumbled on the floor rather than eaten. M&M's are rolled around in his mouth and then get spit out. Part of me wants to put him on Pediasure to make sure he's getting enough nutrition and calories, but there is a negative with Pediasure. Nolan already balks at solid foods, and putting him liquids might make resuming solids difficult later on. I'm not quite sure how to proceed. On one hand, he obviously is not eating things an almost-2 year old should eat. On the other hand, he is maintaining his weight in the 3rd percentile and seems otherwise fairly healthy. I suppose we'll watch and wait to see how he's doing at his 2 year old well-child appointment.
