Like a Champ

Nathan had a colonoscopy and an esophagogastroduodenoscopy this morning. No big deal.

Correction: Big scary deal. For me, at least. I know GI issues don't make for good reading, so I won't get into the details. I will say his insides are healthy and, pending test results, it seems our answer lies in a temporary fruitless diet. Awesome outcome compared with other possibilities!

The topic of discussion here is Nathan. Super Nathan. Over the past two days, this kid has been poked, prodded, and squeezed, in a hospital gown and without a word of complaint. The nurses were shocked by his compliance and positive attitude and the doctor was thrilled with his manners. And I was proud of him every second.

My little boy has been through a lot in his four years and he knows more about medical procedures than a kid should. It breaks my heart, but I know Nathan won't be given more than he can handle. This is apparently more than I realized. He is something special, indeed. What a champ!
