Mikan's local ENT confirmed our decision to go to Cincinnati for a reconstructive surgery. She said, "Dr. Cotton is the best in the country, if not the world," and "If it were my son, I would take him to Cincinnati in a heartbeat." So, at least we know we'll be in good hands if we have to go there. Today during our appointment, Mikan's ENT just reiterated that she saw scar tissue and a lot of swelling on all sides of his airway when she did his scope. She was hoping the Prevacid would help heal it, but with a Nissen (and no other signs of the Nissen being loose), she had a healthy skepticism about her. I've always doubted the reflux explanation...We'll just have to wait and see!
Mikan's PT said his back is getting straighter when he sits up. Hopefully this will soon turn into some sitting up and crawling. She seems to be pretty pleased with his progress.
