We saw ID doc that afternoon and found out that the upper GI was clear. Whew - that means the GI track as a whole is clear. So what is causing the fevers??? We don't know yet. The ID gave him a diagnosis of PFAPA, but we will repeat lab work and go see him again at the end of August. Then I suppose we should know more and possibly get a more definitive diagnosis.
If the fever stays on schedule, it should start any day now. Tomorrow to be exact to the 5 weeks, but it has ranged between 5 - 5.5 weeks religiously. So we wait....

Eli is addicted to Wall-E!! It has been out for a 10 days and we have been twice already. He has posters, pictures, action figures and sheets. It's an awesome movie if you get a chance to see it.
The scary side of being a mom is when your kids are sick. E-man has been getting weird fevers for several months off and on. After the last bout of fever last week, the docs got together and have begun running a bunch of tests to make sure something weird isn't going on in his little body. Today he had a EDG and colonoscopy to see if his Eosinophillic Esophagitis is still flaring up and if something GI wise could be causing the fevers. Preliminary results look good and don't show anything. We will wait for the biopsies and lab results.
