I'm not sure this will surprise anyone, but Hope's bowel test came back with nothing. Her bowels are completely normal anatomically. They saw some slow motility, but say this can happen with the contrast dye. I'm not sure how I feel about this. It's nice to hear that her bowels do not have any abnormalities, but that also means we don't have any answers. Why is Hope not able to eat?
Monday will start a new cardiology rotation and give Hope a new cardiologist. The change over is always hard on us, but we are praying this new doctor will have some new insight that was previously overlooked.
Shawn and I took some time out this evening to go on a date. It was so nice to act normal for a while. We even found ourselves laughing and forgetting about the true realities of our life. It is so important for us to step outside of our situation at times and find ourselves again.
I have had a headache for the past few days that I can't seem to get rid of. Please pray for me as I battle with this uncomfortable inconvenience. Hopefully I'll start tomorrow feeling fine!
Hope is acting more like herself today. She had a few smiles for us and appeared to be more comfortable. I think the liquid nutrients are helping to strengthen her body and it is making a strong impact. We are thankful that she is being fed, even if it can't go through her stomach at the moment.
