Think again.

Damn it. Elliot’s liver enzymes are elevated again. As before, Hepatitis A, B and C not present. No virus either. His SED rate is also up. I wish they would just run a liver biopsy already. I’m a flipping mess – just a blubbering, bawling idiot! Of course, I start to think undiagnosed biliary atresia. Dear God.

I thought that he was simply being a bit stubborn. I thought that he just hated the spoon. Now, I think, and have that terrible motherly instinct, that he is sick…
I pray otherwise.

I confess that I had to google biliary atresia.....still don't completely understand what it is but from what I read.....why don't they do an ultrasound of the liver? Is that the first step?
At any rate, I'm praying for you and Elliot.
Stay strong girl, and if your instinct is telling something is not "right" make a huge fuss and stink until they will follow through! :)
Keep us updated!
