We had a really good end to our week. On Thursday, Elizabeth (our old OT) and her son came to our pool with us. It was so nice to catch up. Alex really misses her so he was very excited.

On Friday, we went roller skating. Oh wait, let me rephrase that. I went rollerskati​ng and pushed Alex in a stroller. He wanted no part of skating. He loved riding though. We went with Allison, Brookie, and Peyton. We always have fun getting together with them.

The big news is we got the car we wanted. We picked it up on Wednesday. I am so happy to be out of a rental!

We leave tomorrow for Houston. This is a pretty easy trip from my viewpoint, but it won't be easy for Buggy. On Monday, he will have a tube inserted through his nose into his esophagus. It will stay in for 24 hours to monitor how much reflux he is having. Some of you may remember we did this test when Alex was 2.5. Then on Tuesday, we are removing that and doing the swallow study. Alex has to drink some barium and they will watch how his muscles are working for his swallow mechanism. Then later in the week we have appts with immunology, endocrinolo​gy and Dr. Koenig. I will be updating throughout the week. Please pray for Alex to be brave as he is nervous for these tests.

Love, Ali
