Endoscopy #2 result

Little M doesn't have juvenile polyp and for that we are very thankful. The bad part is, which I wasn't clear about before, Little M not only has eosinophil white cells in his esophagus, they are also present in his stomach. He has both eosinophilic esophagitis and eosinophilic gastritis. 

As far as the eos count with the 2nd scope, there are zero in his esophagus (150 before) and 16 in his stomach (50 before). This improvement is due the steroid treatment, which is a not a log term solution. The GI and I have decided to go with the top allergy avoidance diet plan. Little Ms diet will exclude dairy, eggs, peanut, tree nut, soy, shellfish. We decided not to include wheat in the diet elimination because the doctor said it would be a hard diet and we don't want Little M to lose weight.

We are now 4 weeks into the diet and not doing too well. The vomiting is back and we don't know why. Obviously it means that we have not taken out the bad foods. We have been keeping a food diary and out best guess is green beans and chicken. So we are adding these to the list of bad foods. We are praying that this takes care of the symptoms.

I am keeping positive but everyday there is vomiting is etching away at my positivity. This disease sucks.

Talking with little m

Little M: I have boobs! Yeah, I have boobs!

Me: You don't have boobs!

Little M: When I was born, did I have boobs?

Me: You have nipples.

Little M: uh huh. Oh yeah! I have nipples! I looooove my nipples! (sing song voice)

***I can only guess that this topic was due to the extreme cold temps.
