Quick Trace Update

Trace had another gagging (not choking!) episode today while eating. Thankfully, it never got to choking and he never fully lost his breath as he did last week. This time I know for a fact he hadn't swallowed anything because Dave was holding him prior to starting to feed him.

Considering this is three gagging/choking episodes in 5 days, even with increased Zantac, we've made the decision to seek further testing. I emailed in our appointment request to the Pediatric Gastroenterology Unit at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. They have a research and treatment department there for infants/children/adolescents with GI problems.

Poor Fizzy Joe...My nerves are shot.

I hope you get an answer as to what is going on. Let me know what GI you get an appointment with...I know almost all of them for one reason or another :)
