Merry Christmas! We had a wonderful christmas, Zach is doing really well this week. He met with his new allergist at Duke on Tuesday and that went well. The new plan is back to no foods..which wasn't a stretch since he was only on chicken.. and he added in a 3 month course of swallowed steroids to hopefully heal his esophagus and he can scope clean when he gets to Cincinatti Childrens. At that point we can try moving on with foods, he did say that Zach is probably one of the kids that needs a food trial of one food for several months then a scope to tell if he is allergic. So it looks like a lot more surgeries for us in the future but we will take that for food. So far he is doing better on the steroids, the only major drawback is his attitude. He is acting unlike himself, he is fussy and sometimes mean. Maybe it won't last for long.
