On another note... Max's celiac labs came back negative (normal). So no celiac disease. Yay! But what does this mean? I have no freaking idea. It's a non-answer. We still have no known cause for his reflux... After a trip to the pediatrician today, we did learn he has bronchitis and an ear infection. A consolation prize?
After doing a little research, I've discovered that for children, especially those two and under, there can be a lot of false negative lab results (meaning the tests say they don't have it, but really they do). The only real way to get an answer is to do the small intestine biospy. So why did I hold Max down screaming the other day for labs that were known to be inconclusive before they were even completed?! So who knows- he still might have celiac disease. Is it time for a glass of wine? Yes, yes it is.
