As I sat and watched the monitor, my heart felt like it was breaking. They made a bottle of some kind of white liquid that they would be able to see. The had a "live x-ray" where I watched as he drank this liquid. His stomach filled up and a tiny bit began to slowly go into his intestines. He took about an ounce and a half of this liquid. When he stopped taking it and turned away from the bottle, I watched as his esophagus started having spasms and this liquid began coming right back up. They estimated that at least 1/2 an ounce came back up. There were no other blockages, but they diagnosis him with re-flux that requires medication 3 times a day. They are planning to check him again at 6 months and then again at 1 year, hoping at some point he will no longer require medication. He's still so strong and tough.
