More Tests

I finally was able to talk to our pediatrician's nurse today about Holland's ultrasound last week. We had been gone all week and I kept playing phone tag with her. We have been advised to do an abdominal CAT scan and he also needs to see a pediatric gastroenterologist. I'm so thankful that both of these appointments will happen quickly. The CAT scan will happen on Wednesday and the GI doctor actually had an opening on Thursday. The ultrasound showed no sign of a hernia, but the radiologist found "abnormal fluid" in his abdomen and so we are on to more tests. The pediatrician can only guess what that fluid means: an infection or something ruptured. Neither result sounds good. Hopefully I'll know more on Friday and can post results then.
