Results from Nathan's Surgey

Nathan was diagnosis is Eosinophilic Esophagitis or EE or EOE. A type of white blood cell (eosinophil) builds up in the tube that connects your mouth to your stomach (esophagus) as a reaction to foods, allergens or acid reflux. When that happens, the eosinophils can inflame or injure the esophageal tissue. Symptoms of EE in Children may vary from stomach ache, loss of appetite, throwing up and failure to thrive. Nathan has now been prescribed more medicines to help with this issue.

He also has some gastritis in the lining of his stomach in which he will need to take some medications for that. 

A new issue that recently has started with Nathan is horrible smelling gas and bowels to be hard and loose. The doctor has requested an x-ray of Nathan's abdomen. We are waiting for those results.
