Kellsey had her MRI and Endoscopy today... they didn't do an MRA this week but they did do an ultrasound of her esophagus while she was asleep. Both tests went well but we won't know the results of her MRI until tomorrow. Her endoscopy showed that her esophagus is healing. :) Unfortunately, her GI in Denver did not have the images from her endoscopy done last week in Colorado Springs, so he was trying to get those images so he could compare. I wish I would have known and I could have brought the copy they gave me. I'm sure he'll have them soon. He said he is cautiously optimistic about her healing but said that he needs to talk to the doctor who reads her MRI and the rest of the team before making a decision about letting her eat by mouth. He wanted to wait until 24 hours after this test to let her eat anyway just in case the tube going down her esophagus irritated anything.
He also noticed that she had a lot of redness in her duodenum and stomach, so he took some stomach biopsies. He doesn't feel the redness is related to the batteries, but he just wanted to make sure everything is ok in there, so we will see what the biopsies show. I'm not sure when those results will be back, I forgot to ask.
Kellsey woke up a little rough from anesthesia, but she is doing well tonight and feeling good. I'm sure she'll feel even better tomorrow after a good night's sleep... and so will I! It's been a long day! Thank you all for praying for her... I will update tomorrow when they have the results of her MRI.
