We Love Wonderful Summer Weekends

The weather hasn't been that wonderful in our neck of the woods. The temperature is above freezing, however, so we're not complaining. We have spent most of this past weekend fishing on our local lake: Nolan and Matt both caught lots of little sunfish, perch, and even a small bass!

Tomorrow we head back up to Buffalo Children's for Nolan's upper GI series: he can't eat after midnight, and we have to keep him happy for the 2 hour ride up to Children's. Hopefully he'll drink the barium this time - last time he refused and they had to thread an NG tube (a tube that goes up the nose and into the stomach) to administer the barium. We've talked about it a bit, and Nolan agrees that he'll drink the white "medicine" tomorrow. He hates "tubies," so there is a good chance that he'll cooperate this time.

If he gets out of there on time, we'll get to go to the zoo afterward. I'm not promising that yet, though, because sometimes they take quite a few "pictures" after the initial study (i.e. I'm not sure if they're doing a small bowel follow-through tomorrow).

It'll make for a long day, but at least he can eat as soon as the X-rays are completed. Hopefully we'll be home in time to go swimming and play outside a little tomorrow afternoon!
