Kiddo had another endoscopy done last week. The doctors have had him eating eggs for a few months and they wanted to see if it has caused any problems internally. What they found was that despite the extremely high dose of Kapidex he's on (it's basically a stronger form of Prevacid), he had developed an ulcer. Go figure!
We got the endo. results today and guess what? THEY WERE EXCELLENT! He's never had such good test results in his life. He can keep eggs in his diet (wahoo!) and will be able to start adding a few new foods this week (we're waiting for the allergist to say which foods).
As for the ulcer, the biospy didn't show anything so the doctor is thinking that his stomach is simply producing too much acid. She said it is likely hormone related and that she'd give us more info on that soon. I'm not really worried about this, considering that 1) it doesn't bother him at all, and 2) the other news is so fantastic!
I guess the fact that Kiddo has now come down with the vomiting-aching-sleeping-on-the-couch flu is the price we pay for getting all this good news. :)
The Winter Session of ice hockey ended a week or so ago and Kiddo got to attend his first hockey banquet. He had a great time sitting with his team and didn't really care that he had to bring his own food - he's totally used to that. Each of the 100+ kids had a short blurb about them in the yearbook. Here's what the coaches said about Kiddo:
[Kiddo] is one of the most competitive players in our program. He will do anything to win. He scores goals, back checks, and occasionally trips people.
For those of you who know hockey, yes, my child is becoming a goon. Kidding! But seriously, he does have an amazing competitive drive that was never apparent until he got into this sport.
He's already started the Spring Development Program (which has 4 ex-pro coaches) and can't wait until he qualifies for travel league. I can see it now: the next 10+ years of my life will be spent in freezing hockey rinks toting smelly equipment ... and I'll love every minute of it!
