Steven's Esophagoscopy, Bronchoscopy, and Endoscopy

Steven did great overall.

The procedure took about an hour, the ENT came out and told me his throat probably wouldn't be sore at all.

Right... when he first woke up he kept trying to talk but all that would come out was a croak and he cried.

But back at home within a few hours he was fine.

The ENT said there were no obvious signs of reflux, but we'll have to wait for the labs from his esophagus and biopsy of his lung tissue to know for sure. Steven's ENT has been seeing him since the cleft palate days of his infancy. Before he left he told me what a great kid Steven was and how impressed he was with him and how he seems to roll with the punches and still maintain a positive attitude.

He is, he does, Steven is a gift.

I just wish there weren't so many punches.
