Results left on voice mail when I ran out to post office:

Sweat test- normal
Chest x-ray showed signs of asthma, but we are already treating it so it isn't a problem
Upper GI- Esophagus looked normal but the radiologist noticed a spot on her liver....thinks maybe it was her shirt. Radiologist is calling back to see if further testing needs to be done.

OK, I am freaking a little right now until the doctor calls me back because Megan did not have a shirt on during the procedure because she vomited the barium everywhere. Anyone know what a spot on the Liver can mean?

Well I called the Pulminologist office a 1/2 dozen times to get the doctor on the phone to explain. I had the nurse relay the message that Megan did not have a shirt on during the procedure.

Well it is 6:30 and the doctor is still working cause I just got off the phone with him. He really put my mind at ease and I am feeling much better.
He said he would not have picked up on the spot if the Radiologist hadn't mentioned it in his report. The spot was very small. The Radiologist probably will not want to see her because it was insignificant but he will review again for sure tomorrow knowing now that she was not wearing any clothes. I will get a call if they want her to come in. IF they do not call the Pulminologist said to put my mind at ease, when I come in again in January that he will run another x-ray to see if it has gone. He said if it is not their than it was a insignificant artifact.

So I am feeling a bit of relief tonight. Thanks for all who worried with me!!!!

I've often wondered, "Why, oh why, do they leave news like this on voice mail messages?"

I'm so glad everything is well now!

it's so frustrating when we can't get ahold of someone to tell us exactly what is going on and we're freaking out as parents! Glad the dr was able to talk to you and ease some of your worries, praying that it is nothing!
