The GI opted to schedule Baby J for an endoscopy to rule out celiac and some other issues. He also ran genetic testing to see if J has the markers for celiac. Finally, we got a referral to an immunologist. One of J’s immunoglobulin levels were low (IgA) and although the pediatrician said it was no big deal, I was worried and posted about it on Facebook hoping someone could give me more info. A friend of Mark’s responded to me and it turns out his girlfriend is basically an expert on primary immune deficiency diseases. She was SO kind to answer every question I could think up and without her help we wouldn’t have gotten a referral to immunology, I’m sure. I feel like this is probably the answer to Baby J’s digestive issues. Our appointment isn’t for another month though.
We had the endoscopy on Monday. I will totally write more about it but today has been way busier than I’d anticipated and I’m exhausted. Plus, we have an early morning appointment to tour a developmental preschool that J is on the waitlist for. So, I’ll update this tomorrow!
